Wapo Taco in Coral Gables is officially open as of today. The Mexico City taqueria already has an outpost in Hallandale Beach with its second location setting up shop at 2526 Ponce De Leon Boulevard.
The 2,000-square-foot, 80-seat restaurant features a menu of "housemade street food" — think an assortment of tacos, quesadillas, guacamole — along with heartier dishes like the Wapa, a warm pita bread stuffed with steak and melted manchego cheese, and the Campechano, a grilled skirt steak, stewed chorizo and chicharrón, and plenty of draft and bottled Mexican and local craft beers.
To celebrate the new location the restaurant is hosting a "Grand Opening Celebration" that's open to the public featuring free pastor tacos and beer from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight.
The restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until 10 p.m., with a weekday happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. in the works. For more information call 786-452-9634.
