Tacombi has opened its newest location in the East Village at 139 East 12th Street. It is Tacombi's first counter-service only location, reminiscent of taquerias found across Mexico, offering a communal standing table for guests on the go. The East Village taqueria is also serving a different menu. Master Chef Carmen Miranda is showcasing the diversity of Mexico through its traditional street tacos and memorable flavors.

The menu consists of five tacos: Tacos al Pastor, thin slices of marinated and Mexico City style spit-roasted pork topped with pineapple; Tacos de Suadero, traditional slow-braised beef tacos from Mexico City named after the cut of meat; Tacos de Ribeye, with cilantro, onions, salsa ranchera and lime; Tacos de Longaniza, ground pork seasoned with garlic, dried chiles, achiote, cumin and clove, cooked with the meat of the suadero; and Tacos de Milanesa, a twist on a Mexican staple, this plant-based version is made with a blend of spices, flaxseed and roasted mushrooms, that are breaded and lightly fried.

The taqueria is also serving beer and to-go cocktails including the Margarita Clásica and the Sandía Santa, made with watermelon and tequila. Additionally, Tacos de Guisados, or morning tacos, will be available for breakfast daily, and come in two varieties: Huevos con Longaniza with potatoes and longaniza, and Huevos con Papas, with eggs and potatoes.

The East 12th street taqueria will be open for breakfast tacos and coffee from 8am to 10:45am, and lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm. For more information visit
