Rubio’s Coastal Grill and celebrity chef Richard Blais have teamed up for the creation of three new adventure-inspired street tacos unique to the fresh Mexican-inspired eatery.
The three new adventure-inspired street tacos include:
- Hula Hula Carnitas: Inspired by Chef Blais’ time in Hawaii, the Hula Hula Carnitas taco features pork marinated in a rich blend of gochujang, achiote, and garlic, wrapped in a banana leaf and slow-cooked, creating tender, juicy meat with an authentic Hawaiian Kalua flavor. It is served on a stone ground corn tortilla with mango salsa and garnished with black sesame seeds, cotija cheese and a slice of lime.
- Blaised & Glazed Crispy Chicken: Offering a tangy, zesty taco twist on Buffalo chicken, the Blaised & Glazed taco starts with Rubio’s crispy chicken tossed in Frank’s RedHot sauce and served on a warm flour tortilla with shredded cabbage, homemade ranch sauce, and house pickled celery and jalapeño, garnished with cotija cheese and celery seed.
- Ancho Po-Boy Shrimp: Named after New Orleans’ iconic sandwich, the Ancho Po-Boy Shrimp taco features flash fried ancho-lime shrimp with Cajun aioli, and is served on a warm flour tortilla with shredded cabbage, salsa fresca and a slice of lime.
All three new street tacos are available a la carte for $4.49 each, or as part of a Rubio’s x Blais Street Taco Plate, where you get three street tacos served with a side of warm tortilla chips and house black beans for $10.99.
