It’s been several years since this initially small, one-cart catering company hit the OC food scene, and through the years have expanded through leaps and bounds to 15 carts today. For those of you who do not know, my story with Soho Taco, it happened a little like this.
A friend was looking for a taco truck or caterer for a party he was having at home. He asked me for some recommendations and since I didn’t have any, I did some research and gave him several names I came across just from googling. He selected Soho Taco and then tells me later it was the best tacos ever.
Fast forward and I’m at a Yelp elite event at Proof Bar in Santa Ana and Soho Taco was there that evening. I fell in love after first bite. Since that fated moment, I have been an avid follower of this company, recommending them to friends for their special day.
Since then I’ve been to a wedding and a baby shower catered by Soho Taco and stop by their food truck whenever I have a hankering for one of those mouthwatering tacos. Soho Taco is not an ordinary taco vendor. Theirs are made with so much love it overflows right into you mouth. One bite and you’ll understand why. The flavors are simply stunning and addictive. Ranging from the ubiquitous carne asada and pollo tacos to the mahi mahi or shrimp ones, there’s something magical about the flavor profiles bursting in your mouth.
Then there’s the veggie taco, filled with portabello, red and yellow bell peppers, onions, and the secret seasoning which ties it all together. These days, they are offering tofu al pastor as well as a soyrizo taco for their many vegetarian customers. This year, Soho Taco launched an add-on to their various packages offering customers the opportunity for tray passed hors d’oeuvres at their special event. I thought it was such an excellent idea, for those wanting something a little more than just the casual tacos. Some of the items I tried are listed below with photos.
Espadillas de Fruta is a refreshing start with skewers of watermelon and mango in a tangy salsa de chamoy sauce and tajin rim adding to the tartness with a hint of spice.
Those of you who have tried the tortilla chips from Soho Taco will know what I’m talking about when I say they are addicting. Tostaditas de Aguacate is a freshly made tortilla crisp topped with guacamole, queso fresco and microgreens, you won’t want to stop at one. The Red Snapper Ceviche with the perfect amount of lime is also served on this tortilla crisp. Mouth-puckering good and absolutely delightful. Vegetarians can choose the Rebanadas de Uva, slices of toasted baguette topped with goat cheese, sweet grapes, and sprinkled with chile lime peanuts. You get a wonderful contrast of textures in this one little bite. Some hot offerings like Albondigas is so delicious you won’t want to stop at one, but I highly recommend leaving some room for those tacos. Mexican meatballs stuffed with dried figs are smothered in salsa de chipotle giving it a rich, smoky taste your mouth will crave. Then, there is Espadillas de Camarones, shrimp skewers drenched in a house made sweet and sour sauce I absolutely loved. I thoroughly enjoyed the Tofu Al Pastor taco which has the same powerful flavors of the pork using tofu. Of course I’d much rather eat a regular al pastor taco, but for a vegetarian taco, it was rather delicious. If you’re planning a special event: wedding, anniversary, birthday, graduation, whatever it is, and you’re looking to see if Soho Taco is the way to go — IT IS — you absolutely won’t regret it.
