Mas Taco Bar is a casual taco chain from Mason, Alan and Curtis Wong. The first location opened on R Street (Thursday, March 22 2018) With upcoming locations at Arden-Arcade (at Arden Town Center) and the Palladio shopping complex in Folsom in September or October of 2018.
The menu, created by the Wongs' executive chef Christian Palmos, will feature 14 variations of tacos—think duck confit in a citrusy tamarind glaze on a corn tortilla or red curry shrimp with green cabbage, pickled vegetables and cilantro on a bao bun or an off-the-menu lobster taco with corn salsa and sriracha aioli—as well as inventive dishes like the habañero fireballs, a blend of habañero and jalapeño peppers, bacon, and pepper jack and cream cheeses that has been rolled into balls, which are deep fried and served with a sweet, tangy mango sauce. Weekend brunch-goers will find a blend of savory (chilaquiles, pupusas) and sweet (blue corn pancakes, dulce de leche French toast) breakfast items to pair with drinks like the horchata cold-brewed coffee.
The restaurants will have a coastal vibe, thanks to accordion glass doors that lead to the wrap-around patio, multicolored hand-blown glass pendant lights and a white, quartz-topped bar serving up cocktails that adhere to a tropical theme—like the pineapple ginger mojito with mint and garnished with a sizeable pineapple wedge and the caipirinha (a traditional Brazilian drink) with cachaça and seasonal fruit flavors like pomegranate, blood orange and dragon fruit—as well as California craft beers from the likes of Track 7, Knee Deep and Ballast Point breweries.
Mas Taco Bar will be open Monday through Friday for lunch and dinner starting at 11 a.m., and Saturdays and Sundays for brunch starting at 9 a.m., with dinner service beginning at 3 p.m. The restaurant will also be open late on Fridays and Saturdays until 2 a.m.
