On Saturday, the boy and I headed to Velvet Taco- a new taco place on Washington. I was intrigued. Especially because Torchys is one of my favorite places in the world and this is supposed to be it’s new competition. Two taco places in near vicinity to me? PLEASE.
We parked on a side street and hiked through some tall grass to get to this place because all the parking was full! And it was PACKED. Good sign, Velvet Taco. Good sign. I really enjoyed the industrial look they went for and the yellow ceiling. We grabbed a mexican coke & sprite and started to get excited for the food experience that was about to go down.
Now I am not known for being an adventurous eater- I will be the first to admit it. However in the past couple of years I’ve branched out. Turns out I like different kinds of food- who knew? So I ended up ordering the slow roasted brisket and the buffalo chicken taco. The boy got the taco of the day which was cajun paneer, and he also got the grilled flank steak. I have to say both of the beef tacos we got were pretty solid. I would definitely order them again. But it turns out that I don’t like buffalo chicken. Not Velvet Taco’s fault- just me learning my taste buds. It’s cool.
We also ordered a side of tater tots- which came with an egg on top! The boy was a big fan and I thought it was alright. No complaints. Overall seemed like a little better quality tacos, but they didn’t have queso! That was my biggest issue. Can’t compete with Torchy’s queso.
Have you been to Velvet Taco? What’d you think?
