Pink taco seeds

Like many highly rated restaurants in Vegas, it is in a hotel/casino; in this case, the Hard Rock. The Pink Taco is one of several restaurants located inside—just walk around the perimeter of the casino, past the Carlos Santana memorabilia, and into a place where Tijuana meets Vegas.

Since we judge any Mexican restaurant by the quality of its guacamole, of course we had to try an order of that. Their claim to ‘fresh daily’ was obviously true—and a bit in-your-face with the washed seed floating in the middle. It was smooth and full of avocado flavor, not weighted down with anything other than a touch of red onion. Other nice appetizer choices include the Ceviche Campechana, with shrimp, scallops and whitefish, or, do as we did and share an order of Chicken Nachos, made with black beans for something out of the ordinary.

You’ll start with the usual complimentary chips—but these are fresh and thick, plus three versions of salsa: a tomatillo salsa verde (green), a salsa charro (black), and a mild red.

The Raves & Faves tour is kicking off in Las Vegas, and we just had to try a local favorite first. Here’s a quick tease of what you’ll find from our restaurant tour, sponsored by U.S. Foodservice. Features will include video clips and more, so keep checking to see what’s new!
