MX Taco new restaurant in the Milk District

MX Taco is now open in the Milk District featuring dishes that are influenced by pre-Hispanic Mayan culture, featuring Pueblan and Oaxacan sauces and more.


"The roots of MX Taco began many years ago in the kitchens of Mexico when Chef Ryan Manning’s passion for the culture and cuisine of Mexico eventually took him south of the border where he worked alongside some great chefs and discovering some of the most unique dishes from towns, cities and states across the culturally rich country.
 
Upon returning to the United States via Washington D.C. he began to build upon the idea of sharing this rich culture with the American palate, exposing people to the unique taste of the different regions of the historically rich Mexican nation. He began to cater via The Ritz-Carlton to this specialized cuisine including being called upon by the Mexican Embassy to the United States in Washington D.C. to cook at The Mexican Cultural Institute for special events. 
 
Ultimately though Chef Manning wanted to return to the city that had become his home, Orlando, where he built a solid foundation of his culinary career in the heart of some of the largest hotel companies including Disney and The Ritz-Carlton in Orlando. "
 
I recently visited and tried many of the tacos and other menu items. I was very impressed with the unique flavors and creative ingredients.
