Màs Por Favor Taqueria y Tequila
Established in January 2020, Más Por Favor Taqueria y Tequila, brings you an experience worthy of the strip right to the heart of Chinatown. Located at 3879 Spring Mountain Rd. Las Vegas, NV, Más Por Favor offers fast casual, authentic street tacos and more.….with our twist...
At first glance, Más Por Favor looks like a bright, open taqueria in a Chinatown strip mall—which is pretty great all by itself. But off to the side is a secret hallway, modeled after a drug tunnel (with bags of "cocaine" as decoration), leading to a dark but wonderfully vibrant speakeasy parlor. The cocktails skew towards tequila and mezcal with a dynamic variety of flavors. Some go down a little too easy. The red or white sangria (neither overly sweet) carry more volume and last a bit longer. Casamigos Margaritas are on tap with house-infused jalapeno bitters and other modifications encouraged. And yes, you can order the same delicious tacos sold out front. The No-Boo combo of carne asada, truffle, and artichoke is especially tasty. The kitchen's take on a Frito Pie offers the option of using Doritos instead.
How to get in: Play it safe and book a reservation.
You already know that Mas Por Favor has a great speakeasy-style bar in the back, but let's not overlook the taqueria out front. It's a minimalist semi-industrial space with wood decor and concrete floors. Just walk up and place an order at the counter. Street tacos come with a choice of meat and style. "Gringo" is regular. "Wok it Out" is Asian-inspired. Yet the signature tacos are the most fun and like to stretch the definition of what qualifies as a taco shell. Just look at the Hawaiian bread that wraps around juicy BBQ pork, or a crispy egg-roll tortilla that accompanies an Asian-style shredded chicken taco. The chicken taquitos make for a crispy side dish while the "F-Bomb" is basically a loaded bag of Fritos. No, the cocktails from the speakeasy aren't on the menu, but there's plenty of beer by the can or bottle.
How to order: Order online or just walk in and place an order at the counter.
Mas Por Favor is "businesses in the front" (a taco shop with nachos, burritos and other south-of-the-border bites) and "party in the back" (a speakeasy and lounge with an emphasis on tequila and mezcal). The two are separated by a "tunnel" to represent crossing the border. The bar could get by on atmosphere alone, but the cocktails are exceptional, especially the margaritas (made from on-tap Casamigos) and Sweet Melons Dude, which mizes mezcal with honeydew melon juice. Specialty cocktails and tacos are half-off on Mondays, beginning at 8pm for Ladies Night.
