I recently had the great pleasure to dine at the newly opened Taqueria 27, whose menu offers a wealth of creative options. The wonderful folks at T27 kindly gave me a $50 gift certificate which I’m ready to give away to one lucky reader of Gastronomic SLC. First though, a bit more about the restaurant and the menu.
According to owner/chef Todd Gardiner, the general concept of “tacos and tequila” had been a seed in his mind for some time. “This is not your average rice and beans place. I wanted to create a casual place serving amazing food that my family could walk to, and not have to drive downtown for a great meal. It’s the kind of joint you can call home, hang out with your friends after work or drop by for lunch with the kids in tow. Plus we have an outrageous selection of 100 percent agave tequilas for sipping or mixing”.
“Most of the menu is very approachable, but I have added some interesting offerings for the adventurous. Plus, everything on the menu represents terrific value.” Tacos come in orders of two or four in mouthwatering combinations. Handmade T27 corn tortillas come filled with achiote marinated chicken, slow roasted pork, fresh fish, house made turkey chorizo, flame-seared chile-marinated prime beef, assorted wild mushrooms, griddled veggie or a simply outstanding duck confit taco that’s slow cooked and shredded with fire-roasted vegetables, leeks and chipotle añejo syrup.
Those inspired tacos are only part of the story at T27 though. The menu is diverse and imaginative in every corner – from the five different types of guacamole through to fresh salads, mole platters and much more. Hungry yet?
