When I spotted tacos on the lunch menu at Yuma, I wanted to give them a try. So I ordered the tacos from their lunch menu at a very affordable NT$150. But I'm not crazy about the new flavor of the rice and the hard shell tacos just left me wanting to eat their regular priced fajitas Three Amigos. Bring back the original rice!
Sadly, I think we'll never find the So-Cal style Mexican carnitas or carne asada tacos here in Taipei city. If anyone finds it, let me know!
But my first-time-at-Yuma friends liked the vibe and the food and chowed down with their seal of approval.
It's kind of cool that they give you the sauces in a bottle to use (kind of how Tony Roma's used to do)...
and drinks were in old-school glass bottles.
The lunch menu is a great option, especially since you can add a bowl of soup and drink for a little extra. But if you're hungry, be sure to order off their regular menu since it's priced to share anyways.
