solita has introduced a new menu featuring more than a dozen new dishes, including the long-awaited
Executive Chef/Partner Deborah Schneider’s Super Tacos became famous when it they debuted on the menu of sister concept, SOL Cocina, in 2009.
Over the past 8 years, SOL’s ‘Super Tacos’ have gained much attention and a quite few awards (including OC’s Best Taco) for elevating the basic taco with more salsas, cheese, and garnishes – adding layers, toasting and frying, and generally pushing the taco to its limit.
Chef Deb’s taco-focused cookbook, Amor y Tacos, fueled the popularity of the Super Taco with recipes for the home cook.
Now, solita guests will have the opportunity to partake in five new Super Taco selections, including Chef Deb’s acclaimed Vampiro, inspired by great ideas from both sides of the border.
While many of her Super Taco flavors are traditional, Chef’s techniques and combinations take the typical taco up to the edge – and occasionally, over it.
“A taco can always be made larger, spicier, gooier, or have more goodies on top – at solita, we like to have fun and take a few risks,” says Chef Deb.
“We take the street traditions and add a little modern innovation to bring you something a little different.”
As Chef Deb says, “Tacos may not be considered a serious meal by most, but here at solita, we take them very seriously. Even the most humble taco stand in Mexico is plastered with signs proclaiming that here are to be found ‘tacos ricos,’ ‘tacos super-fantasticos,’ ‘tacos el mejores del mundo” – humility is clearly not part of the recipe for a great taco. What is essential are freshness and character – delivering big flavors in small bites.”
