About Cartel Taco

Cartel Taco is the first project by the Cartel Street Food Company, the rolling obsession of its three founders and their collective forty years of restaurant life. Cartel Taco specializes in hand-making Mexican fusion tacos, using quality meats prepared in the traditional Korean style of Bulgogi. Using grass-fed, free range beef ribeye from Pemberton Meadows Farm and free range pork from Fraser Valley Farms, our meat is marinated and braised before being barbecued and served quickly to order on freshly baked corn tortillas with finely chopped onion, cilantro & kimchi accompaniment. All Cartel ingredients are made or sourced locally, including our kimchi and hand-made tortillas (safe for gluten-free diets), and our amazing salsas are prepared from scratch daily in the Cartel kitchen. For the summer season we’ll also have an excellent fresh papaya salad with kimchi vinaigrette & toasted pumpkin seeds.
