I am pretty blown away by the generosity of our community. We have received an amazing outpouring of donations from the Des Moines area for Young Professionals Connection‘s TacopocalypseCentral Iowa Shelter & Services Thanksgiving Dinner. We can’t wait to turn all of these ingredients into an unforgettable holiday meal for those in need. Thank you to all who have donated food, money, and time to help us make this even better than we had hoped for. We are still taking donations at the restaurant, and those who want to volunteer contact us at [email protected] Thank you thank you!
Local Mobile Food Favorite Tacopocalypse Brings “Devastatingly Good” Cuisine To The East Village
August 5, 2013
Des Moines, Iowa
Former Downtown Farmers Market favorite and champion of local mobile food, Tacopocalypse, will be bringing their famous atypical hand crafted tacos to Des Moines’s East Village late August. The highly anticipated new venture, the first official store front for Tacopocalypse, will occupy the building at 621 Des Moines Street, which formerly housed the restaurant Luna.
“I’m very excited to finally be downtown and to be a part of the East Village neighborhood. I have watched this area grow and flourish for the last ten years,” said Chef/Owner Sam Auen, “it is home to some of my favorite businesses and restaurants in the metro, and I can’t wait for Tacopocalypse to be a part of the family!”
The menu will include all of the classic hand pressed corn tortilla tacos such as Bacon Chorizo, Bulgogi, Vegan Chorizo, Korean Chicken, along with new flavors being developed for the new location. Vietnamese sandwiches, Banh Mi, will be added to the offerings as well as new appetizers. The vegan/vegetarian options will be expanded, and the favorites from the “Burrito Of The Day” will be on an always-available burrito menu. A selection of local beers and specialty soft drinks will be offered.
The new family friendly location will be serving lunch and dinner Monday through Friday, and their fan favorite Brunchpocalypse every Saturday and Sunday. They will also be offering bike delivery to the East Village and late night dining on Friday and Saturday.
