Velvet Taco: The Best Tacos in Chicago
Velvet Taco seeks to elevate the “humble food” using the standard tortilla “as a canvas” to make art. The result? Over twenty varieties of globally-inspired tacos made with “in-house preparation methods.”
On the menu, you’ll see unique twists on traditional tacos, like the Spicy Tikka Chicken. It features crisp chicken tenders, spicy tikka sauce, buttered cilantro basmati rice, Thai basil, and raita crema in a flour tortilla. Other unconventional, tasty options include the Korean Fried Rice taco, the Slow Roasted Angus Brisket taco, and the Shrimp & Grits taco.
