Taco Local (Panglima Polim)

By Nyoman

Taco Local is a tiny Mexican joint located in Senopati. They just reopened after being closed for a few months for renovation: Actually they used to be even smaller than that... They extended the restaurant to the bicycle shop just next to them (that is why you will find some old bikes hanging from the ceiling).

In a nutshell, the food is cheap, delicious, worth every penny and the staff is friendly. What more can you expect ? In Taco Local, until recently, you had to get your food yourself at the counter because they did not have any staff for the service. Then the place became more and more popular and just now they are turning into a more proper restaurant.

For what I ordered on the picture, I paid less than 100 000 Rp with a beverage!

Overall: Strongly recommended if you happen to be in the Senopati area. You can also check Holy Gyu Restaurant, which is located right across Taco Local.

    TL;DR - I would go back again

    Full Version - Tries this place out over the weekend. Seating for about 12 people outside with room for maybe 12 more inside. staff spoke English. the nachos were tasty. the burrito was also good. the salsa was green, but had a good flavor. I tried one of their margaritas, and that was the only weird thing, it had alot of mint leaves so the taste was unusual. Meals run about USD $10 or Rp 100.000 per person. Cost environment and interesting bathroom. Check it out.

  2. I think you're mistaken the street name. They're on Panglima Polim, not Senopati. Its a different area. About 15 minutes in a good days without traffic

  3. You're right, this is located on Panglima Polim ! Thanks
