Tacos Kokopelli opens new location in Playas de Tijuana
The buzz about Tacos Kokopelli has been floating around Baja and Southern California for almost a year now. I will never forget the first time that we tried these innovative tacos in Tijuana. The flavor combinations such as pulpo al pesto had not previously existed as a street food option. I mean one way to this girls heart, or stomach shall I say, is octopus. Cook it perfectly on a grill bathed in a Poblano pesto, who's mouth hasn't started to water? This group is incredibly talented, and there was no doubt that they would expand into a new venture.
It was an absolute pleasure to be part of the Christening of the new Tacos Kokopelli location in Playas de Tijuana. Close friends and family gathered in the new space, enjoying their creations out of the new kitchen, and sharing the special experience of their opening ceremony. Plates of their Kraken, Marlin Pibil, Aguachile, and a smoked salmon and brie tostada floated by. We watched Oso as he placed the salmon filets into the new smoker, with olive wood, and then smothered it with a Cempasuchitl cream. Then just before it was about to be done, he placed slices of Brie on top to be slightly melted over the smoked fish. I can't forget the Pomegranate seeds that came to the party as well, on that work of art. So colorful, and couldn't have fit in better with the season.
The interior of the new location is all made up of recycled materials. A bicycle wheel and mason jar chandelier, is one of my favorite parts of the decor, which is even hard to say, because the whole place is just beautiful. You can see the love and dedication that went into this new journey. Colorful glass bottles line the outside the kitchen, and the wood tables and stools are stunning.
The Tacos Kokopelli location in Playas will be open to the public starting November 7th. Prepare to be amazed with a few new items on their menu, and just the overall lovely ambience and vibe of the new space.
Congratulations once again to all! We wish you the best of luck, and success on this new endeavor.
