Remember my last post about the bartaco secret campaign where they feature a secret menu item a few months ago? The secret taco was an Ancho Ahi Tuna Taco. Well, I was recently invited back to bartaco on 12 South to try their latest bartaco secret item and this is one you definitely don’t want to miss!
The new bartaco secret is a braised short rib taco! It contains ancho coffee braised short rib, served on corn tortilla, and topped with pickled fennel. I would seriously order this taco every single time. It was one of the best tacos I’ve tasted. The short rib is braised for several hours before being prepared on the taco. There was so much flavor in these little tacos.
I brought my friend Trisha along for a lunch date so that we could sip on sangria and help us get through the day. It was perfect patio weather for being the middle of January. 70 degrees and sunny with some cloud coverage. I could have sat outside all day on the patio if I didn’t have to get more work done. It was the perfect lunch break.
If you haven’t already visited bartaco in Nashville (or in any of their other locations), you need to get your bootie over there now. I HIGHLY recommend starting your meal with the tuna poké, it’s definitely the best I’ve had. They also have some of the best service I’ve received at any restaurant in Nashville. You can tell they really work hard to take care of their customers. I’m always pleasantly surprised by how their staff goes above and beyond every time.
If you have a local bartaco near you, be sure to stop in and ask your server for the bartaco secret taco! They’ll know exactly what you’re asking for and you won’t regret it. Share it and use #bartacosecret when you do.
Hope you all have an incredible weekend! I’ll be soaking in this spring-like weather this weekend and enjoying just being home for a change.
