Taco 'Bout Good Value: Beijing's Best Taco Night Deals
Mexican food seems to be having a bit of a moment in Beijing right now and the city's best restaurants are competing for our attention with some great deals, most notably on that fixture of many a Mexican menu: tacos.
As is tradition, many of these taco deals take place on #tacotuesday, but a few are spread throughout the week, so you can get your taco fix whenever you need it.
Taco Tuesday at Cantina Agave, 5pm-close
Every Tuesday at Cantina Agave, enjoy unlimited servings of every corn and flour soft taco on the menu for just RMB 100. Use all that taco goodness to soak up some strong happy hour margaritas. A good choice for frequent Sanlitun-goers.
Half-price Tuesday tacos at Q Mex Taqueria, 5pm-close
The latest concept from the team behind Q Mex is a taqueria, so it makes sense that they should have a taco night. All tacos – including our current favorites, the jalapeño butter shrimp, and the pulled beef with tomatillo salsa – are half-price all evening. A great time to sample this fun new restaurant.
Taco Tuesdays at Ron Mexico, 7-11pm
Every Tuesday, the folks at the recently relocated Ron Mexico serve up three different types of tacos for RMB 10 – whether you order one or six, that's a pretty great bargain. These tacos aren't constrained by tradition, so expect creative fillings like Thai chicken or Sichuan eggplant. Read more about Ron Mexico's tacos here.
All-you-can-eat tacos at Hatchery, Monday, 7pm-close
Hatchery are putting the chickens from their new Bird on a Wire concept to good use with a RMB 88 all-you-can-eat deal on chicken tacos every Monday. You can customize your tacos with a range of salsas and fillings. Upgrading to RMB 128 gets you two hours of free-flow Coronas.
Happy hour tacos at Taco Bar, 5-7pm Tue-Sun
This one is less of a taco night and more of a taco bar (which makes sense for a restaurant called Taco Bar, if we're honest). Between 5-7pm (or all day Tuesday through Thursday), buy a draft beer or a cocktail and get a free taco from a selection that includes Taco Bar favorites like carnitas and hongos (grilled mushrooms). Buy three drinks and you've basically had dinner for free!
