Local Bites: bartaco Hyde Park - Lobster Taco

Every time that bartaco introduces a new secret taco, I keep my fingers and toes crossed that the delicious lobster taco has made its return - it's my favorite secret taco of all time! And thank my lucky stars, it has returned, more delicious than ever. 

Keep scrolling for my usual orders, and find out just what's packed into the deliciously crunchy lobster taco:

Salsa Roja: Guajillo chiles blended with mild tomatillo salsa

Mint Fresca Lemonade & Port Chester Reviver


Plantains: My favorite thing to order!

Baja Fish, Duck, Pork Belly and Rock Shrimp Tacos

Lobster Taco: Crispy corn taco packed with guacamole & creamy chilled chipotle lobster salad, topped with citrus sherry vinaigrette, garnished with cilantro, onion & fresno chili salad.

What's new about this year's lobster taco is that it's on a crispy corn tortilla shell, which is a nice, varying option to the usual soft corn tortilla options. The flavor is perfectly balanced between the slightly spicy chili salad, the mild, creamy guacamole and the sweet, succulent lobster.

I always make sure to order the plantains (served with a delicious creme sauce) and a cucumber salad to help cleanse the palate in between taco bites. bartaco never disappoints when it comes to consistently quality food and cocktails!
