That’s what we’re taco about!

Looking for somewhere in Dublin to celebrate Taco Tuesday. Of course you are.

Tacos are one of life’s most simple pleasures, and what better day to get some than on a Tuesday? It doesn’t have the fresh start feeling of a Monday, nor the halfway point joy of a Wednesday. Sometimes on Tuesdays you just need some cheering up, and tacos are the perfect antidote.

1. Juanitos

Location: South William Street

Juanitos at Mercado 52 serves LA style food from the heart of Dublin. They do a range of tacos, including pulled pork with pineapple salsa, chilli beef with citrus, and Cajun prawns. If you’re a vegetarian you can try their Greek halloumi variation.

2. Nutbutter

Location: Grand Canal Dock & Smithfield

Nutbutter serves delicious food that best satiates a flexitarian. You can get plant based chorizo or jackfruit tacos as well as meat tacos with spiced chicken or brisket. You can find them at Grand Canal Dock, and they’re opening a Smithfield location later this week, ideal for future Taco Tuesdays.

7. Brass Onion Bistro

Taco Tuesday is only around for two more weeks at the Brass Onion Bistro, so if they’re your local taco spot make sure you pop in this week or next. However, they’ll be back with Taco Tuesday in 2023, so no need to get too worried.
