Classic Mexican Comfort Food Infused With Creativity

Papalote has all the taco options you'd expect from a good Mexican taqueria, but also incorporates influences from throughout the Latin-American world, such as Cuban tortas. Combine that with fresh ingredients and an open kitchen and you have a restaurant that's a cut above the usual taco stop.

Some stuff to try here that you won't see on the average taqueria menu includes the cachete (beef cheek), alambres (a mixture of bacon and carne asada) and the vegetarian cauliflower cake tacos. They also have a series of rotating daily specials that are worth looking at.
