Tacos in Playa Del Carmen

TaconTenedor is one of places where everything comes together right. We are pleased to bring you this seafood restaurant that is designed to be a mix between a street food place and a formal restaurant. They have a small menu to focus on good quality. We are sure you will notice the quality in the food and have a good meal here.

Besides just tacos here they now have expanded their menu. One of the new things they have is the seafood hamburgers. There are three now on the menu. There is the tuna burger with mango salsa, shrimp burger with chipotle sauce and fish burger with herbs. Hamburgers come with sweet potatoes fries. This are not the orange sweet potatoes you might be familiar with though. The are Mexican sweet potatoes  which are lighter and not as sweet.

The Restaurant Name

TaconTenedor (one word) comes from the a fusion of three ideas. Part of the design of the restaurant is a shipping container so it incorporates “container” or Spanish “contenedor” and the Spanish word for fork together. In Ensenada, Mexico they eat tacos with the assistance of a fork, so Ta/con/tenedor is Spanish for “with fork“.  It is also Taco/ntenedor  which has “Taco” in the name. Very clever and well thought out just like all the details of the restaurant.

Do yourself a favor and stop by this place! Make sure to check out the mouth watering photos below. Here is also a review.

TaconTenedorGreat food. It is seafood inspired by Ensenada Mexico and bringing you the Pacific taste to Playa Del Carmen. Tacos, ceviche, burritos, soups or whatever combination of goodness they bring to the menu. Make sure you try some of the homemade salsas. They have a spicy carrot salsa and a beet salsa just to name two.
