    • Reigning champions of Shanghai’s annual Shanghai chili cook off, these guys know what they’re doing. They stick to the fundamentals of a Mexican food with a nod to some Chinese classics.

      Downstairs is cozy with an open-style kitchen and tequila bottle lampshades hanging from the ceiling. The terrace upstairs has a nice relaxed feel. Its probably one of the few suburban roof top spots in Shanghai where you can sip on a margarita and look out to some lush greenery. Bonus: You can take your pooch up there.

      Food menu is a nice one-pager. Snacks, tacos, ceviche and dessert. For the protein you can choose from some traditional meat and seafood options or if you’re feeling a little more adventurous there is Schezchuan twice cooked pork or mapo tofu.

      Call me boring for starting with chips, guac and salsa but it was worth it. The corn chips are lightly seasoned with a smokey cajun seasoning which is such a tease, that stuff is like Mexican MSG. The house-made salsa has good heat and laced with tequila giving it a nice punch. Not a huge fan of the guacamole. The texture was too creamy and personally I prefer it a chunkier.

      The Tacos. For 65 RMB (2 tacos) the portion is generous. We had the bean and corn and the fried fish tacos, which were filled with a mix of pickled cabbage, corn, house-made salsa and coriander. They come double-shelled, with a hard taco encased within a soft one. Whoever came up with that deserves a raise! Caution though, it doesn’t stop sauce from dripping out of both ends. Overall I think they nailed it. Spice – tick, crunch - tick, fresh – tick.

      If you’re looking for a mid-week flavor kick I would recommend trying Tacolicious. The service is great and value for money high. My only advice before you go: Don’t wear white and load up on napkins. These tacos are messy so be prepared for a drip fest.

      Price: ~ 250RMB for 2 people

    • “It’s a hard taco. In a soft taco. Held together together with cheese.” My friend was drooling a little as she lifted this taco to her face. The taco itself was actually a bit bigger than her face, but that’s what you want in a taco, right?

      The fish taco was incredible. It tasted of growing up in Mexic…. Atlanta. My friend from LA also agreed that it was the best taco in Shanghai, and my friend from New Zealand couldn’t really speak because he had never had a taco so beautiful.

      Most tacos are RMB 65 for two + RMB 10 for guacamole on top. I’m consistently right about two tacos never being enough outside of the Americas, but I was so wrong her. Oh how wrong I was. We also sampled the loaded fries for RMB 45, and we felt pretty good about the cheese ratios.

      I’ll certainly be back for a another Tacolicious meal very soon, and I don’t know why I doubted so many people when they said this place lives up to its name. Great food, cute spot, nice service.

      Average price per sober person: RMB 100.

      Summary: It’s a hard and soft and held together with cheese. Just when you think you can’t get your mouth around it, you manage.
