Velvet Taco 

Try the tacos at Velvet Taco. Do you like your drink with a kick? The crispy tenders, Danish bleu cheese, ranch crema, carrots, and micro celery in buffalo chicken tacos are delicious. The falafel is rolled in lettuce and served as a vegetarian option with pickled red onions, arugula, tomato, pickled Fresnos, avocado, and pickled red peppers. Topped with fried paneer, sweet tomato chutney, and Thai basil, it's served with takka-raita sauces that kick as they're cooled. There is an excellent reason to use purple and coarse hibiscus tortillas here instead of flour tortillas, as they lend a rich, velvety texture to the dish and a hint of bitterness.
