Tacombi founder Dario Wolos got his start selling tacos out of a refurbished Volkswagen on Yucatán beaches over a decade ago. Since then, Wolos has transformed a roving van into a growing taco empire that now boasts four bustling outposts throughout Manhattan and one in Montauk. Inspired by classic neighborhood taquerias, Tacombi explores the distinct culinary regions of Mexico and celebrates authentic taco culture through all aspects of food, drink, and design.
We caught up with Wolos to get his top Mexican spots around New York City. From a Michelin-starred restaurant in Long Island City to a Tijuana-style taqueria in Chelsea Market, here are his go-tos.
