While Miami is certainly not lacking in the taco department, another new taqueria is throwing its cuisine into the mix. Called Pilo’s Street Tacos it offers up a Mexican cantina experience with a variety of tacos and beers at 28 SW 11th Street.
Inspired by the cuisine of the owner Derek Gonzalez’s Aunt Pilo, on the menu guests can find plenty of the usual suspects found on Mexican taqueria menus throughout Miami like pastor, steak and shrimp filled tacos along with queso and guacamole. However there are plenty of new and not-so-traditional additions like the El Sirenito taco made with tuna carnitas, the El Brody made with smoked mahi mahi, the El Canijo with chorizo, brisket and chicharron, and flautas stuffed with items like hibiscus flower, potato puree, chicken, and manchego, which can all be doused with Pilo’s salas like the La Dulce made with raw green tomatillos honey and avocado.
And tonight to celebrate its grand opening, Pilo’s Street Tacos is celebrating with a block party from 6 to 9 p.m. with taco tastings, free beer, live entertainment and giveaways. RSVP here.
Pilo’s Street Tacos is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday to Wednesday, until 1 a.m. on Thursday, until 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday and open until 10 p.m. on Sundays. For more information call 305-800-8226.
