Local Bites: bartaco in Hyde Park - Crispy Brussels Sprouts Taco

I can’t deny it - one of my favorite times of the year is when bartaco launches a new secret taco. I love getting the opportunity to share the incredibly inventive flavors with you, and trust me when I say, you won’t be disappointed by this new offering.

Keep on scrolling to see what we ordered, along with details of the new bartaco secret!

Some of our go-to usual orders: Crispy Rock Shrimp, Glazed Pork Belly & Baja Fish Tacos

I admit, I had my doubts when I heard the main ingredient of the new secret taco was brussels sprouts - don’t get me wrong, I love brussels sprouts. But, I also felt like it may not be filling enough for a taco, and boy, was I wrong. The combination of brussels sprouts and pepitas provided an incredible texture profile with each bite, and the taco was so flavorful with the honey chipotle glaze and spicy curry carrot puree. Even my brother-in-law, who made a face and said “one” when I asked him how many brussels sprouts tacos he wanted, asked me to order him another one - it was that good.
