Loco for Taco Local
Being always on the lookout for a good taco in Jakarta, we jumped at the chance to give Taco Local a try. Located on Jl. Panglima Polim 5 # 38, this tiny resto is easy to miss. Inside we found limited seating (i.e.no individual tables/semi-uncomfortable little stools) but once we received our order of Elote, Carne, and Al Pastor Tacos, we were sold. You’ll be hard pressed to find a more delicious combination of Tex-Mex flavors in our fair city. Seriously, each dish we tried was incredibly tasty. The only disappointment we found was that not everything on the menu was available for us to try.
Partially owned by the former food critic for the now defunct Time Out Jakarta Magazine, Sebastian Subakti, this little taco joint is the real deal. Cheap tacos, beer, and other assorted Tex-Mex delights are offered up in a hole- in-the-wall type atmosphere the likes of which we’ve only previously experienced in Texas.
Having consumed as many tacos as humanly possible, we left Taco Local completely stuffed, but still wanting more. We suggest that you head there immediately and get your taco on.
