I tasted the fusion of the Far East and south of the border at Taqueria Tsunami. As their name suggests, they are all focused on fusing Latin-Asian flavors. My favorite bites and sips:
- Korean Fried Cauliflower – Crispy cauliflower tossed in a sweet and spicy Korean sauce. Unique find alert! It’s vegan and delicious!
- Guacamole fresco – Made to order guacamole with tomatoes, onions and fresh cilantro. Chunky but smooth and full of flavor.
- Queso – Cottage cheese dip topped with jalapeños and pico de gallo. Neither too runny nor too thick. Perfect consistency.
- Avocado and Cilantro Imperial Rolls – Homemade and lightly fried to perfection and served with Santa Fe ranch and a sweet and spicy Thai sauce. The crispiness of the egg roll and the creaminess of the avocado make it a unique bite.
