“ABG Food”
Review of Taco Local - CLOSED

I've been here three times. Great tacos and burritos. Excellent sauce, no wonder it's not free. A little high on the price but serving size is generous too, so it's fair. The last time I was here I took a friend of mine from Germany. He laughed, "Man, this ABG food in an ABG place!" For those who don't know, ABG means "Anak Baru Gede", ie. young adults with negative undertones. I guess he was implying that the crowd was rather young, the place small, and the food portion is for kids.

i went to taco local with friends to try this new restaurant for a dinner after passing by panglima polim ares for several times...
we came at 7 p.m. the place was awfully cramp and hot ( no air condition ) although it was just raining.
We'd like to order few of the favorites like taco lingua (beef tongue) but they the run out of it, and so we order quesedilla, double variety of soft tacos with different fiiling.
The quesedilla taste was so poor and not enough meat, cheese and condiments. the soft taco skin was mussy. it's not worth the price. the service during our visit was unfriendly as well, the guy who supposed taking our order was busy playing Samsung smart phone. Taco local is really major disappointment. i recommend for the value for meal of mexican food, go to prominent Mexican restaurant like Hacienda at pondok indah mall street gallery / arcadia plaza senayan, El Asador south american rest in kemang raya, aruba in pasar raya, or any chains of Amigos texmex rest. they have air cond, good trained waitre, nice ambiance and far much better quality of mexican food.

The place serve really good food here but I think it's quite pricey seeing the portion they serve you. It is also a little bit cramp but overall it is ok

i tried the ox tongue taco, called langue taco, if i'm not mistaken. it's very delicious & chewy. i also ordered nacho, which also good and has a quite large portion. overall it's great, but doesn't come cheap. of course, it's where the jakarta hipsters hangout

I knew about this place from a friend. Went after office hour, and what a surprise! A cozy place to go in busy Jakarta. Nice soft tacos and very refreshing cold lime drink. Must visit! Especially before going clubbing on Saturday night! ;-) good that this place is not situated in Kemang..! The only minus point is that this place doesn't have parking space.
