Taco lovers, listen up! Tight Tacos Maui is heading to Honolulu for a one-day pop up, and you won't want to miss it! On June 1, 2021, Moke's in Kaimuki will be hosting Taco Tuesday and street tacos are on the menu. HI Now hosts Kanoe Gibson and Kainoa Carlson got to sample some of the offerings.
While the event is planned for 5 – 9 p.m., Reggie Ballesteros of Tight Tacos Maui recommends coming early before things start to sell out! In addition to delicious tacos, KTUH’s DJ Mr. Nick and HPR will be there spinning tunes.
The concept for Tight Tacos started over a night of drinking among family. The group wanted to sell fresh, hot, street-style tacos on the sidewalk like the vendors in Mexico and California. Today, Tight Tacos offers Quesabirria on Saturdays at its shop in Kahului. However, the family’s preferred way to eat Birria is with soft corn tortillas because it soaks up the broth so much better, and you’re in control of all your toppings and portions.
Tight Tacos recently added Birria meat to its permanent menu along with consome as a side to help introduce people to that style of eating tacos. This style of Birria will be available at the pop-up along with other signature proteins, which include Carnitas, Camarones and Baja fish.
