Miami New Times' Description
Situated on South Beach's Lincoln Road, Huahua's Taqueria doesn't abide by any authenticity besides its own. It isn't exactly a Mexican restaurant, nor is it Tex-Mex or even fusion. It's the kind of place you usually visit after midnight, on evenings when you've perhaps had too much to drink, and nothing but a deep-fried avocado ($3.29) taco will do. Indeed, Todd Erickson's tacos are mischievous little things, branded with neat grill marks and crammed with unusual fillings such as fried chicken and jalapeño-flecked cornbread. The flour-dredged chicken is perfectly cooked, doodled with an ancho-infused ranch sauce reminiscent of gringo sports bar meets taqueria. Another quirky dish, the breakfast taco cradles rich pork chili, carnitas, hash browns, and scrambled eggs over a flour tortilla. Certain occasions call for such indulgences: a nightcap on a hot evening, cooled down with Huahua's fruity paletas and one or two of its violet-tinged blackberry margaritas.
Tips from foursquare
If you love the food at Haven, then you will love the food here also. More great food from Chef Todd.
Fave Tacos — Guaco, Crispy Pescado, BBQ Short Rib and Breakfast. Some Guac & Chips on the side and chase it down w/ a mixed frozen margarita.
The breakfast taco, carnitas, and short rib tacos are the best.
Walk inside and you’ll find one mean taco that’s anything but shy. If you want the classic stuff, they have that too, but for those more adventurous, a playful appetite will surely be rewarded.
If you're going to have tacos on South Beach, Huahua's is the place to go. Their options are always cheesy and affordable. Don't miss out on their Taco Tuesday specials!
