Say what? You say the Tacopocalypse is arriving upon the citizens of Madrid, IA at the Flat Tire Lounge tonight? Tis true. We are paying a visit to our favorite non-home-base cycling trail and bar, the FTL on the HTT (High Trestle Trail). (You are probably wondering, at least a few select of you are, what the OG #1 trail and bar of the Tacopocalypse would be. Great Western Trail, Cumming Tap in Cumming Iowa. We are there Tuesdays from 5-???)
Yes, we will be in Madrid tonight. It is just a quick jaunt for all of you Ankeny/Slater/Woodward taco lovers, and any of you that haven’t had a chance over the last year to open your mouths and pop in one of our tacos, it would serve you well to finally initiate yourselves into the fold. Tonight should be clear, brisk autumn riding weather (read: perfect) and we have some great food for you, along with the already great times to be had at the FTL.
This is our menu for tonight:
Braised Pork: our version of Carnitas
Wasabi Brisket: This has become a new favorite. Slow cooked brisket topped with pickled vegetables and a Wasabi Crema. Is Good.
Chicken Bul Go Gi: A Korean inspired marinated chicken topped with Kimchi.
Veggie Chorizo: A meatless chorizo that will not leave you wondering “where’s the beef?” This is soy/mushroom based and spiced with our own chorizo seasoning blend.
All tacos are served on hand pressed corn tortillas, and the pork and chorizo are both topped with our now-famous slaw (the slaw is the law). All items are also gluten free, except for tonight’s chicken dish which contains some soy sauce which includes gluten (sorry about that, and sorry for all of these parentheses).
We will officially start serving at 5pm, but we may start a little early. Tacos go until you stop coming to eat them! See you tonight! Don’t forget to bring your party shoes.
Tacos are important,
