While in Miami I enjoyed tacu-tacu at Farolito.
I’m searching for tacu-tacu in LA. I’m going to ask Qusqo if they can make it since they are conveniently located but it’s not on their menu. This is a version of the recipe from LaVida Comida. According to the recipes I found tacu-tacu is an Afro-Peruvian dish, designed to make good use of left-overs. The main ingredients are white beans and rice.
In my search for tacu-tacu, I picked up a Yelp description by Dao Nguyen of Mo-Chica in downtown LA. Interestingly, she mentions that Ricardo Zarate does a monthly tasting at Mo-Chica. I remember Zarate well as the excellent Peruvian executive chef and partner in Zu Robata on Wilshire in West LA, which sadly closed. According to Dao’s review on Yelp, Ricardo Zarate is now executive chef at Wabi Sushi in Venice.
Posted from flight UA 29 on my way to LAX. Still didn’t find Tacu-Tacu anywhere on the west side of LA (Qusqo didn’t have it). Farolito is still serving delicious food, in a nice ambiance with great service.
Update: Just be careful to note that gratuity is included.
There are numerous places with TacuTacu in Southern Florida.
I’ll bet I can find some Tacu-Tacu in New York City.
