Tepaco is a new type of restaurant that’s delivering Mexican street flavors through its flagship locations in Toledo, Ohio. Tepaco stands apart from other Mexican-inspired restaurants with a unique pairing of authentic tacos and housemade tepache.
Tepache is a kombucha-like drink, but with less bite and a little more expression of fresh fruits. While still growing in popularity in the U.S., you’ll find this fizzy, fermented pineapple-rind drink all over the streets of Mexico City.
You can now have their chef-created menu items delivered straight to your door through DoorDash and Uber Eats. To celebrate the launch, Tepaco is offering a free trial of its signature OG Piña tepache with each order for a limited time.
“I’m a super fan of Mexican food, particularly from the interior of the country. I’ve been traveling to Mexico since I was a teenager and have developed a great passion for the diversity of expertise and flavors of Mexico. I believe it’s the deepest and greatest culinary center we have closest to the U.S.,” says Chef Eric Justice, Head of Culinary for Tepaco.“ At Tepaco, we’ve taken the bold, smokey and savory notes of Mexican street food and paired them with a fizzy and fruity counterpart for a balanced flavor. There are a lot of places to get a taco. There’s no one else like this.”
Additionally, Tepaco is partnering with the Northwest Ohio Salvation Army to donate $5 for every order over $20, starting Tuesday, December 6 through December 31. The Salvation Army and Tepaco recognize that holidays can bring added financial and emotional stress for families in need, and the non-profit offers a variety of services to help families and individuals in need during the holidays.
