Yesterday was “Taco Tuesday” and quite the gorgeous day! How did YOU spend it? I hopped on the CTA Green Line to Más Tacos + Tequila in Chicago’s busy West Loop neighborhood.
Más is located just 4 blocks
east and 2 blocks south of the Morgan ‘L’ stop along the CTA Green and Pink Lines. The #8 Halsted bus will also take you there.
Chef Eloy Suarez is serving up some delicious tacos and shared plates. Here’s how my dinner went down:
I decided to try a trio of his signature tacos for $13. There are several interesting ones from which to choose.
I really loved this veggie taco made with enoki, crimini and portobello muschrooms. It was very earthy and mixed with a spicy onion chile de arbol sauce.
The ribeye asada taco was quite good as well. It was mixed with chimichurri sauce, shoe-string fries (awesome!), queso fresco and grape cherry tomato.
My absolute favorite taco of the meal was this spicy delight made with shrimp, chorizo, bacon and tomatillo salsa. It also had some of those crunchy shoe-string potatoes piled on top. I loved it so much that I ordered an extra one 😉
I washed it all down with this watermelon and tomato margarita. It was a delicate balance of sweet and tart. I wasn’t sure it would work but it did. Very refreshing!
Más is located on the sunny corner of Washington and Halsted Streets. The space is very sleek. It is decorated with my favorite color palate of red, black and white. Immediately, I felt at home. Check out this beautiful bar!
I am looking forward to returning to Màs for more of the delicious tacos, crudo, ceviche and more. I have my eye on the cranberry habanero salsa!
Más Taco + Tequila is located at 800 W. Washington Street. It is open every day for lunch and dinner. Brunch is is served on Saturday and Sunday. Click here for their menu and more.
In keeping with the spirit of Feeding Off The Rails, I encourage you to leave your car at home and take the CTA Green Line, Pink Line or the #8 Halsted bus to Más. Save on gas. Avoid traffic, road rage and parking. Reduce pollution. Don’t drink and drive!
