Tocaya describes themselves as “modern organic Mexican cuisine” and I can say I agree. They use organic ingredients to create a twist on Mexcian flavors. However you spin it I can say the food is delicious!
This was our first trip to Tocaya and it included a bowl, a couple of tacos, and a couple of sides. We had to at least get through part of the menu!
We got two delicious tacos: a Barrio Style and the other Baja Chipotle.
The Barrio Style came with roasted tomato salsa, avocado, red onion, and cilantro. We picked beef picadillo and jalapeño jack for our protein and queso.
The Baja Chipotle came with cabbage, sweet chipotle sauce, vegan chipotle crema, and cilantro. We picked sea bass and got the cheese (I can’t remember which) on the side.
Both tacos were super flavorful and bright, but the winner for both of us was the Baja Chipotle. The sea bass was beautifully seasoned and it paired well with the other flavors in the taco.
We picked two sides to go with our tacos: the roasted cauliflower and the Barrio Fruit bowl. The cauliflower tasted like curried cauliflower and it was good, but not amazing. The fruit bowl was seasoned with lime and chili and was super bright, but I was hoping for sweeter fruit?! Both sides were good, but I would definitely check out some of the other sides next time.
The bowl we went for was the Fajita Del Rey which came with sautéed poblano peppers and onions, Spanish rice, black beans, vegan chipotle crema, guac, and pico de gallo. We picked chicken tinga as our protein and got the queso fresco on the side. I LOVED this bowl and would honestly get it again.
It had some spice and planty of creaminess from the guac and crema to cool it down. Each component was delicious on it’s own, but even better when mixed together. The chicken was the star in this bowl-it was warm and shredded and perfectly cooked.
Post dinner I still needed something sweet so we stopped by a macaron place and I got an almond and passion fruit macaron. Looking at these I feel like I need a couple more right now!
