I originally discovered Takumi’s awesome and inventive Japanese twist on Mexican food at Smorgasburg a couple of years back and always wondered when they would go Brink n Mortar. Recently they took some space in Chelsea Market location serving their Japanese spin on Mexican Street food. Think Spicy Tuna Tacos, Green Curry Beef Rice bowls and Nachos topped with like goods. Takumi starts with traditional Nacho trips and from there turns the dish on it’s head topping them with Ginger Pico de Gallo, Yuzu Guacamole, Wasabi Crema, Napa Slaw, Cojita cheese and a protein I had to go Spicy Tuna. While familiar at it’s core this delicious spin tastes like nothing you’ve had before. To drink I had their Iced Tea…their Lychee Iced Tea. I was a big fan when I first had their Tacos but these Nachos make a stop at Takumi a must do on any Foodies list.
Takumi Taco is located at 95 9th Avenue in the Chelsea Market
