Disclosure: We were invited to try new items and experience Taco Tuesday at El Torito Restaurant.
It’s Tuesday and the only place I wanna be tonight is El Torito. I was lucky enough to be invited to El Torito with my bloggy friends to enjoy their Taco Tuesday experience. We came hungry and excited to be reunited as I visited my hometown in the OC.
El Torito has always had a special place in my heart. It use to be the go to spot for my co-workers and I for Happy Hour (before I left SoCal) and it was the place my parents booked to host our friends and family after our JOP nuptials for the hubs and I. It’s also been the very place we visit as a family every year because the food is amazing and the staff is always welcoming!
Taco Tuesday Gang
I invited a few friends to a Taco Tuesday experience because tasty food and great friends always go together. And because sometimes visiting the West Coast is usually just business so I like to make time to see friends when I visit. El Torito for Taco Tuesday was the perfect experience let me show you why!
Taco Tuesday Taco Bar is so LIT!
The tortillas for the tacos are handmade in front of you. The masa is amazing!!! It’s corn masa made with queso cotija and chiles guajillos!!!! It adds the perfect kick to the tacos and unlike any tortilla i’ve ever had.
The taco bar is stocked with fresh ingredients. Carnitas, chicken, fish, and of course beef tacos are on the menu. You can mix and match so I had beef and my favorite carnitas! There was also fresh toppings for the tacos like more chile, onion and cilantro, and queso, limes, and more!
My tacos were amazing! And my friends who tried the chicken and fish loved those too! If you love tacos i’m telling you Taco Tuesdays at El Torito is the place to be!
We also had a couple of fajitas brought to our table and some table side guacamole because that is also a must when dining at El Torito! The fajitas were amazing and so filling our table of 7 had tacos and fajitas and it was more than enough for our group! They come with plenty of veggies and meat and of course rice y tortillas!
We even had Chef Arturo make us a veggie fajita with a chile relleno and tons of flavorful and colorful veggies!
Last but definitley not least, dessert. If you love sweets this is gonna be a hard decision. Again, just like the tacos and other menu items the dessert is outstanding! My personal favorite is the flan but the deep- fried ice cream sundae and tres leches chocolate cake are to die for too! Our group over indulged and ordered 3 to share!
Good Vibes at El Torito for Taco Tuesday
My friends and I had an amazing night of great food and memorable conversations. The atmosphere was great and the staff made our time so fun! They really took care of use just like I remember in previous visits!
