What I Ate: Tacolicious – Santana Row

Tacolicious - Santana Row

San Jose’s Santana Row may very easily be my favorite escape out of the city.

The weather is always 10 degrees warmer than San Francisco, everything is clean (I’m talking Disneyland clean), there is PLENTY of parking and there are some serious spots to chow down + shop.

So when word got out that Bay Area taco staple, Tacolicious was opening on the row I was immediately down for a little Sunday Funday trip to San Jose.

A visit to any Tacolicious is not complete without a Paloma…even though I may have spilled Paloma #3




New to Tacolicious?

Check out some of my favorites from their menu:

 -Chile con Queso (mike’s cheese dip). Sustainable? No. Local? Nope. Delicious? Yep. This description came directly from the menu. I am always down for queso dip – especially when I’m hungover. #SundayFunday

-Albacore Tuna Tostadas Contramar-Style. This is seriously my favorite dish on the menu. They come in an order of two – Get one for everyone at the table.

-Coctel de Camarones. Love a shrimp cocktail! Throw in some saltine crackers + everything is alright.

And you can’t visit a Tacolicious without an order (or 10) of tacos.

My go-to-tacos include: baja-style pacific cod, traditional carnitas and the guajillo-braised beef brisket.
