Chefs Enrique Olvera and Daniela Soto-Innes have finally launched a set of Atla tacos. Prior to this release, there were no pre-built tacos available at either of Olvera's restaurants, but the Mexican chefs have finally bit the bullet and released two amazing full-fledged tacos. Both Olvera and Soto-Innes had an equal hand in the development of these tacos, which elevate the humble street food into unique compositions fit for the high-standards and heavy praise of Atla.
The two tacos designed by Enrique Olvera and Daniela Soto-Innes demonstrate two different approaches to the street-food staple. The suckling pig rendition features incredibly tender meat that is garnished simply with onion, avocado and an hoja-santa lea -- the taco is a study in minimalism and authenticity.
The other release features much more inventiveness as a Brussels sprout taco. The taco is built around a core of caramelized and piquant deep fried Brussels sprouts accented with fish sauce.This particular taco is the standout of the two and works perfectly with the specialized tortilla and inventive salsa.
