Latin seafood, Cajun brunch, <em>and</em> cured meats
Three Dog Night sang that one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do, and while it's difficult to see how you could have sex with a number, Mariscos Tako has nonetheless taken that lesson to heart. Helmed by a San Fran-trained butcher who spent the last few years in the Big Easy, this slat-wood Jessie St. trailer not only serves up Mexican seafood, but completes a foodie trinity by hosting a weekly Cajun Sunday brunch, and, very soon, by slinging whole-hog charcuterie -- sure to blow up, though unlike the brunch, it won't remind you of Hand Grenades.
Lunch/dinner rotates daily, with standouts like tempura-fried Cali squid tacos, a blue crab tostada w/ avocado, crushed mint & lemon olive oil, and La Campechana: a ceviche fueled by clam juice, avo, onion, salsa bruja, TX brown shrimp, rockfish, and poached octopus -- which is highly illegal, so it's best if you eat the evidence immediately.
The Lord's Day not-quite-breakfast/not-quite-lunch often comes with a free frosty beverage and features pork shoulder boudin with a sunny side-up duck egg, smothered turnip greens w/ smoked bacon, pork belly cracklins w/ creole mustard, and TX brown shrimp/smoked sausage gumbo w/ jasmine rice, no longer getting steamy exclusively with Aladdin.
The cured-meat details are still in the works, but the plan is to enlist Johnson's Backyard Garden to help transform the Jessie St. Trailer Park into a farmer's market -- where presumably you can get lots of other stuff too, excluding dog, and possibly bullfrog.
