If you're looking for a place downtown, and we mean right downtown, to get stuffed on all the tacos and beer you can fit inside of you, look no further than Toro Toro.
The restaurant, inside the lobby of the InterContinental Miami, plans to offer an all-you-can-eat taco bar on Saturdays with an event called "Tacos y Chelas," literally meaning tacos and beer. Straightforward. We like it.
For $18.21, restaurant-goers at lunch (from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.) can indulge in a fully fledged taco bar, complete with all the Mexican beers that are fit to drink. Think Coronas and Dos Equis, Modelo, and even Pacifico, if you're lucky. But why $18.21? It's Toro Toro's ode to Mexican Independence.
"I wanted to do this taco bar to bring some of my culinary experiences in [Southern] California to Miami," said Executive Chef Eric Do. "We have had great success with our weekday lunch buffets and Sunday brunch buffet, so I thought it would be perfect to offer the unlimited taco and beer bar on Saturday to give people a place to come enjoy good food and beer without breaking the bank."
With taco fillings like grilled adobo chicken, carne asada, and even Korean pork, the SoCal influence is readily apparent. Complete it with a smattering of queso fresco, pickled onions, and salsa verde and you have a recipe for a damn nice afternoon downtown.
The taco bar offering runs
through the end of September indefinitely.
