What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words Tako Cheena? I think it’s safe to assume that most people would envision a Mexican-Asian fusion or, as I like to say Mexicasian (Mexi-KAsian).
Tako Cheena is the new concept from Pom Moongauklang, owner of the awesome Pom Pom’s Teahouse and Sandwicheria. This is a very small and cozy place where Pom spends most of her time cooking up interesting and eclectic combinations using Asian and Latin flavors.
Their menu is composed of tacos, empanadas, Asian hot dogs, burritos and desserts. You can order tacos individually or orders of three-tacos each. The tacos are smaller in size where most people could eat two or three, while the empanadas, burritos and hot dogs are larger items.
I’ve had about every taco on the menu and I can say I’ve liked just about all of them, with the India Yellow Curry Crispy Tofu being my favorite due to it’s combination of flavors and textures.
While the tacos are delicious, the hot dogs are very unique because instead of using a typical hot dog. Tako Cheena takes the ordinary hot dog bread and dresses it up with Chinese sausages, garnishes it with thinly sliced cabbage and topped off with Japanese rice seasoning known as furikake. They call this hot dog, the Japa Dog!
Overall Tako Cheena is a great place for a quick bite at a very affordable price. Pom’s creativity is reflected on all of their dishes and you are always in for a meal that will not disappoint.
