Hop Lot's Chicken Tacos

By Blair Yaroch | Dec. 1, 2018

On a cold winters day when you question whether the sun has abandoned the skies of Northern Michigan, never fear! There is a place in the woods where the party continues in any season. And like any good party, it has tacos. (As if you needed another reason to go.) Hoplot — home of the heated igloos, S'mores kids roast over an open fire, and tacos that make you forget about any gloomy atmospheric conditions. (Especially when paired with one of their beers!) The chicken tacos, made from Cajun seasoned shredded chicken, have just the right amount of Latin spice while still being mild enough for the pickiest palate. The caramelized onions bring a touch of sweetness and are a perfect complement to the peppery arugula and savory queso. Tossed into a warmed corn tortilla and combined with Hop Lot's feel-good vibe, these tacos are as dreamy as the beer garden you’re eating in. $3 Hop Lot Brewing Company 658 S West-Bay Shore Dr. Suttons Bay. 231-866-4445,
