Taco (Thursday)- Touch Supper Club

This is the first official post of the new "Taco Tuesday" series that I will be featuring. It is simply an ongoing series of reviews of the overall taco scene in Cleveland, with a focus on Taco Tuesday specials. Since Touch Supper Club is the reader that challenged me to review Cleveland tacos, it is only fitting that they are the first review that I will share.

Touch Supper Club in Ohio City always has creative specials and events taking place. They have a late night menu, great happy hour (including free sushi every Friday), Burger Bash every Tuesday, and my favorite- Taco Thursday. They call it- F#@K Yo Dolla Tacos, and feature gourmet tacos for $3 or two for $5. The taco menu typically features around five different options, and it changes every week.

I've been twice now, and the tacos were exceptional on both visits. Last Thursday, "R" and I went and I enjoyed two tacos:

Kimchi BeefBlackened Shrimp with Pineapple SlawThe tacos are served on soft, warm flour tortillas, and are small enough that they are manageable to eat and yet filling. I had two tacos and a salad, and it was more than enough food for dinner. By the way, the Warm Mushroom salad with dried cranberries, Lake Erie Creamery goat cheese, mixed mushrooms, field greens, and creamy Parmesan basil dressing ($7) was outstanding.We both ordered it, and "R" is still dreaming about it.

But back to the tacos. They can easily be compared to the more popular Deagan's Kitchen & Bar tacos, and I'll have to visit them next so that it is more of a head-to-head comparison. We're truly lucky that the Touch food truck is a taco truck- so keep your eyes peeled for them on the streets of Cleveland. For all you taco lovers out there, get over to Touch and give them a try on Thursdays. Just ask for extra napkins, because they are juicy! Surprisingly, the tortilla holds up well and no tearing or sogginess occurred.

Have I mentioned that I'm super pumped to start this series? Mmm, tacos. Who's coming with me to the next place?

I've been wanting to give Luchitas on W 117th another try... I've only been there once, and I liked it. I did not care for their location in Parma.

Are you going to crown a winner at the end of the series?

Bite Buff said...

Luchitas is one Mexican joint that I've never been to--I'm in!

Hmmm, hadn't thought about an "end". I'll give it some more thought. Not all tacos are apples to apples, so I thought that might make it hard.
