One of the best ways to unwind is through the messy, incredibly satisfying act of devouring tacos. You can throw any attempt at grace out of the window, and shove glorious tacos into your mouth without a care in the world. Go overboard with the citrus. Let the flavorful juices drip. Wash it down with a horchata, a few beers or a shitload of margaritas.

Let your hair down in these new taquerias! In here, things are bound to get deliciously dirty.

El Chapo’s is a Filipino-Mexican Food Cartel nestled in the massive food park, The Yard. Here, the choices are limited, but you can look forward to weekly or monthly specials.

For all you food park enthusiasts, here’s another one you’ve gotta check out. This time, the taco spotlight is in the newer, younger sibling of The Yard—The Yard Underground. Macho Lucha serves affordable, fusion, flavor packed Mexican grub. Just some of the must-tries are the ultimate bacon nachos and cheeseburger tacos.

Guisados doesn’t claim authenticity; instead, it prides itself with a Mexican-inspired fusion of flavors that would sit well with Filipinos. For example, you can have your tacos with rice. Just some of their unique, must-try tacos are the chorizo-egg and the chicharon. The place is also well known for fantastic lechon belly.

Enjoy tacos (and much, much more) with a predominantly Latin American flare at Titto’s Latin BBQ & Brew. The menu is a medley of several cuisines, making it very unique and exciting. Filipino cuisine, for example, appears in the Kare Kare Burrito, Sisig Street Taco and Carne Bistek. Another interesting, must-try is the Japanese and Mexican fusion—TACOyaki.

If that doesn’t entice you enough, they also offer unlimited tacos every Monday and Tuesday for only P199. Gather the gang!
