With a range of authentic Mexican ingredients at their kitchen’s disposal, and a touch of post-Mexico culinary fusion, the Taco Shop promises to bring the true taquería experience to the West Village. By dispatching the Tex-Mex all too common in other taco joints, siblings Jimmy, Natalie and Alex Sanz have expanded their family business, alongside Chef Dudley Nieto, with the aim of transplanting a staple of Mexican gastronomy to Manhattan.
Gone are the days of the US-style taco bloated with unsavory fillers. At $2.95 per taco, The Taco Shop’s fare is packed full of tender cuts of meat and succulent vegetables. The modus operandi takes your order from the kitchen to your table with a swift turnaround every made-to-order taco. Yet The Taco Shop’s kitchen is churning on all cylinders long before these handcrafted delicacies ever reach the plate. Every taco, side dish and dessert is the product of hours of intensive culinary preparation.
