Post Pandemic life has generated a hunger for new, innovative restaurants with creative menus. With that has come an emphasis on quality service in a fast-casual atmosphere and a focus on flexibility with each customer experience.
New York City based entrepreneur Dario Wolos launched Tacombi with a focus on delivering that exact combination driven by authentic Mexican food experience. What began as a Taco truck operating from a Volkswagen bus in the early 2000’s has morphed into over a dozen taquerias across the Eastern seaboard.
Infusing Authenticity and Diversity: Tacombi’s Unique Mexican Menu
Wolos and his culinary R&D team have utilized a diverse culinary heritage found in Mexico’s 32 unique regions to create Tacombi unique menu. “Our goal is to bring Americans one giant step closer to Mexico,” Wolos noted. To accomplish that vision, Tacombi’s menu features a wide range of genuine taco recipes along with classic Mexican snacks and drinks.
“We want to share what’s beautiful about Mexico and use that to reinvest in Mexican communities,” Wolos detailed. “When you operate a food business, It starts with quality ingredients and authentic recipes to express our passion for Mexican culture and cuisine.”
The passion that Wolos and the Tacombi team bring to the communities they serve have driven the success of the company. That quality and passion enabled the brand to skyrocket to 17 locations in New York, Chicago, Miami, and and most recently Connecticut. “We are very excited to bring Tacombi to Westport (CT). It’s a natural evolution for our brand to grow into the suburbs both with guests who know us from the City and first timers,” Wolos added.
Tacombi has also expanded into wholesale tortilla products in stores, with its “Vista Hermosa” brand. These tortillas are meticulously crafted from scratch on a daily basis, embodying the essence of freshness and authenticity.
They come in various forms, including corn tortillas, flour tortillas, and the beloved tortilla chips, affectionately known as “Totopos.” As it works to expand its reach beyond the taquerias, Vista Hermosa is now on the shelves of over 2,000 retail stores.
Nurturing Communities: The Tacombi Foundation and Local Engagement
In Westport as it has done in many of the markets it now calls home, Tacombi’s impact extends far beyond culinary excellence. As well as spreading and celebrating true Mexican culture, there is a deep commitment to giving back to communities with their restaurants, helping out with hospitals, local school events and sports teams.
Each new taqueria that Tacombi opens plays an integral role in advancing The Tacombi Foundation’s mission. At its core, the mission is dedicated to combating and addressing food insecurity, a pressing issue that affects countless families and neighbors in need. Through the collaborative efforts of the Tacombi Foundation and the taqueria kitchens, thousands of meals are prepared and donated to local families facing food challenges. It’s a heartwarming testament to Tacombi’s dedication to not only satisfying appetites with their exceptional tortilla products but also nourishing the spirit of generosity and community support in every city they enter.
Tacombi has brought flavorful and authentic Mexican cuisine to Westport. With its renowned mouth-watering tacos, made with fresh and high-quality ingredients, it is satisfying Gold Coast cravings for delicious food.
With its colorful and vibrant décor, Tacombi is providing a unique dining experience that seeks to transport its dining patrons to the streets of Mexico with the allure of amazing tacos.
