Loving This Taco King Cake

January 6, also know as Epiphany or Twelfth Night, kicked off the Carnival season which means it is now time for Mardi Gras celebrations. Parades, dubloons, beads, cups, and my favorite King Cakes are officially here!

I love a good traditional King Cake and at the same time I love when businesses start to think outside of the box with their own offerings to the Mardi Gras gods. A few years ago, I told you all about Wine Country Bistro’s King Cake Martini and Daq’s Wings & Burgers King Cake Burger. I’ve sipped King Cake soda, King Cake daiquiris, and many other interesting deviations. If something says King Cake, I’m probably going to try it. Yesterday, thanks to Chris Jay and the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, I was able to experience the Taco King Cake from El Bazar Mexicano No. 2. If you’ve never heard of this creation before, you’re probably experiencing a weird sensation in your brain and mouth where you’re trying to figure out how a sweet pastry and tacos will mix. Shut those thoughts down right now, because this is not that.

El Bazar Mexicano No. 2 has basically created a taco party tray with 20 tacos, grilled onions, raw onions, cilantro, limes, and a grilled jalapeno assembled on a crawfish platter ( well duh!) and decorated with Mardi Gras beads and a gold paper crown. Ours featured al pastor (pork with pineapple), asada (steak) barbacoa (beef cheek), pollo (chicken), and pork carnitas. How is it possible that something so basic can be so brilliant at the same time?!

My absolute favorites were the al pastor and pollo. You know it has to be something truly special for anyone to say that chicken tacos are their favorite, well because it is chicken. This was chicken chicken. This was seasoned, flavorful, juicy chicken. This was the chicken that everyone aspires to make but only a select few can actually accomplish. This was some good stuff and I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to experience it.

To get your own Taco King Cake for only $29.99 plus tax, call El Bazar Mexicano No. 2 and give them about a 24 hour heads up to make your Mexican Mardi Gras fantasy come true. Each King Cake will serve about 4 people who aren’t terribly hungry.
