What else could you want in your slice of Tokyo?

Musician Timmy Lampinen whips up authentic Mexican street food-style tacos at Timmy's Tacos, one of Detroit’s oldest pop-ups, which sets up outside a number of dive bars across town. Hey, there's nothing we love more than cheap tacos and punk rock. Grab a $2 taco with marinated shredded chicken or pork, and some of Timmy’s homemade salsa. But don’t forget your cojones: he uses ghost and Anaheim peppers, and poblano and Thai chilies.
Where: Motor City Wine
