Tacombi (UWS)


Tacombi was born on the balmy beaches of the Yucatán in 2006 with little more than a cloudless, palm-filled dream of sharing the beauty of authentic Mexican culture with the world.

We purchased a 1963 “combi” bus in Mexico City, wheeled it slowly (very slowly) through the Yucatan peninsula and parked it comfortably in the once-sleepy, now wide awake, beach town of Playa del Carmen. The engine was scrapped, transmission sold, seats swapped for cooking equipment, and the roof was reeled back to produce a taco serving stand with warmth, charm and character.

That small bus has continued an adventure of transformation & passion. We opened our first taqueria in a garage in downtown New York in 2010, and have since opened neighborhood taquerias in New York, Washington DC and Miami. Within our taqueria walls we also started producing our own authentic, traditional “Vista Hermosa” tortilla products to preserve and share the flavors of Mexico and offer these products through stores across the country.
