Salt Lake City, Utah (Good Things Utah) — This week Taste Utah’s Katy introduces our taste buds to a new style of taco shop, Yoko Taco – located near the Granary District in Salt Lake City at 285 W 800 S.

The store front offers a fast-casual vibe, but don’t let that fool you. The menu offerings are rich, decadent and hand-crafted. Each taco, burrito, torta, and tostada is built around fresh, simple and unique ingredients that highlight the traditional flavors of Mexico with a contemporary spin.

Some of the more nuanced and dynamic tacos are:

  • Crispy pig ear with tomatillo salsa, cilantro and onions
  • Pork belly with kimchi pico, cabbage and house salsa
  • Fried chicken with slaw and salsa

They’re also sourcing Rancho Gorda Pinto beans and highlighting them as they’re own stand alone side dish, while offering you a classic plate of chilaquiles with an egg on top, a personal favorite of Katy’s. Don’t blame us when you taste these tacos, and want to make every day taco Tuesday.

Yoko Taco also offers catering and would love to be a part of any event you’re hosting. They’ll do all the work, and you can take all the credit for your impeccable taste! 

Tune in every Sunday at 9:30 am and join Taste Utah as Katy goes on her tasting adventures all over the state highlighting authentic Utah food stories. Behind every good food story is a great people story.
