Taproot’s Veggie Taco
By Blair Yaroch | Dec. 29, 2018
There’s something about stepping into Taproot that gives you all the feels. The combination of earthy décor, farm-to-table deliciousness, mouthwatering craft ciders, and exceptionally inventive cocktail menu get us every time. As do their tacos. In particular, their veggie taco, which could challenge the heart of any carnivore. Upon two warmed corn tortillas sits a hearty layer of roasted squash marinated in a sweet chili and adobe-spiced marinade. The sweetness mingles with the heat in a perfect yin-yang flavor balance. The squash is topped with shredded lettuce, crunchy pepitas, pickled red onion, and dollops of creamy chévre cheese. Add avocado (because why wouldn’t you?) for a small upcharge. Then grab a cup of the soup of the day (lucky you if it’s mushroom and chestnut topped with potato chips) and a pint of cider, and those feels will feel even better.Find it all at Taproot Cider House: 300 E.
