If chasing down individual food trucks to try Indian, Vietnamese, and Hawaiian tacos at $4.15 a gallon has you spent, a recently opened shop called Mondo Taco in Mid-City brings about 20 internationally influenced tacos all under one roof, with the catchphrase “Sí! The World!” Ja, ja, ja! Mondo’s menu includes “Big Ben” fried fish tacos with tartar sauce, “New Yawker” hot dog tacos, Thai chicken in tortillas with peanut sauce, and to celebrate our new-found brotherly love with Philly under the shared dropping of so-many F-bombs, cheese steak tacos (and grinder tacos for Massholes).
The place also serves wraps and bowls and promises both corn and flour tortillas are made in-house. The tacos are a little steeper than a lonchera’s leanings, at about $2.50 to $4.50 per taco, but the place has a fun M.O., serving “garlic bomb” tacos and chocolate chip cookies with a wink, a Mexican Coke, and a smile.
Mondo Taco is open daily from 11:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. Take a look at the full menu right here.
