Stuffed Pepper, Beef Steak And Chipotle Chicken: Say Hola To The Best Tacos In Town

Navya posted on 17 April

Hard shell or soft, authentic Mexican or Tex-Mex, guacamole or tikka – in every avatar the taco is the ultimate comfort food. You can have it for brekkie and with a beer. And it is a versatile dish when it comes to flavours. In our beloved Bangalore, you can chomp through Roast Pork, Beef Steak, Ice Cream and even Phulka options! Here are version that we all need to taco’bout!

Stuffed Pepper Taco @ Krazzy Folds

Cheerful and popular with the crowds, this restaurant has a handful of ‘krazzy’ sounding tacos. There’s a paneer version, of course. But we have our eyes firmly set on the Stuffed Pepper Taco – where the peppers are stuffed with gooey cheese before being batter fried. It’s then stuffed into a soft taco along with tomato salsa, black beans, and slaw. During summers, they even have a jackfruit taco that’s worth teasing your palate with.
