Our buddy, Jim, tipped us off that his friend, Rebecca, opened a taco joint.
Her vibrant quirky stand with lovingly prepared tasty Mexican food instantly became one of our most frequented lunch spots.
Turns out King Street Tacos has the most absolutely tender and lean Carne Asada bites ever. Oh, Carne Asada stack! Oh, Carne Asada tacos!
Bésame Mucho = Kiss Me Alot
Rebecca loved your surprise visit for lunch. Wow, you get full surprisingly fast – lol – we ate more then you! Thanks for the tip, your company and for sharing your rice:)

This is that rare place where it is possible to refuel with homemade foods in a snap. The whammy sauce options, well balanced flavors + combinations of crispy/soft textures make us drool.
So BYOB (love that) or pick something cool, sweet and hydrating from their fridge. The sodas are a great foil for spicy flavors or try the horchata (rice milk with cinnamon and other goodness).
Qué delicioso -if the doors are open so is King Street Tacos.

The decor is gorgeous, the food sumptuous and the happy hours are happy.
So why, oh why, is this gem shutting their doors at the end of next month?
With a chic outdoor bar that beckons us, especially at pau hana, when everyone glows (is it the spirits? the lighting? both?).
With the exotic teas and macarons on display for our viewing pleasure and consumption.
With a superbly executed menu that includes the 腐皮蝦腸粉 Prawn and crispy beancurd cheung fun (roll shown on the left) aka dim sum crack.
Yauatcha gets it all right.
So while there’s still a month left to experience Yauatcha, follow our lead. Go soon. Go often.
