Taco Kat, a new taqueria by the Team Market Group, will officially open to the public Oct. 18. The restaurant sits at 11 S. Court Ave., taking over the previous location of Cleo's Lounge.
Taco Kat will offer a variety of menu items such as tacos, quesadillas, Mexican drinks and desserts such as tres leches cake. These tacos are prepared using hand-made wheat flour tortillas and cooked crisp, in the style of the Mexican state of Sonora. The menu contains a variety of protein choices to go alongside them: grilled short rib of beef asada, grilled chicken thigh, beef barbacoa, shredded beef, chorizo, ground pork and pinto beans. Each taco will come dressed with cilantro, cabbage, and red and avocado green salsa.
The Sonoran taqueria and tequila lounge will also have a secret bar, for those in the mood for drinks and some fun. What may look like a cooler for drinks on the outside is actually an entryway to the bar.
Taco Kat joins a long list of new taco restaurants joining the Orlando area this year such as Solita Tacos, Quesa Loco and Rosa Mexicano.
