What to expect: So you’re in the mood for tacos? When the itch for Mexican food comes around each Tuesday, you’ve now got a new spot in the Gables to satisfy your craving. Located right on Miracle Mile, Plomo Tequila and Taco Bar is the spot to hit up for tequila-based cocktails and a round of, you guessed it, tacos. If you’re prepared to face the summer heat, grab a spot at one of their outside tables and enjoy the people watching on one of Miami’s favorite streets while you munch on some classic and not so classic Mexican fare. 

The Menu: You know why you’re here, but, if you’re in the mood for a salad or chilaquiles, Plomo has you covered. With dish names like Vuelve a la Vida, El Guero, La Fresa, and El Muro (The Wall). On Tuesdays, all tacos are $3 ALL DAY, so you won’t feel guilty getting more than a few for yourself. Order one of their creative agave-based cocktail, grab one or two of their apps to share, and two to three tacos per person, leaving just enough room for dessert (obvi).

What to Order: You love guac. We love guac. Everybody loves a good guac and Plomo’s version hits the spot. They’ve added crispy sunflower seeds to the combo, and it gives the dish that extra crunch on top of its already super fresh taste. If you’re hungry, this portion is good for two to three people.

Now let’s talk tacos. El Muro? Enough said. We’d climb over a wall to have one of these babies. This is Plomo’s take on tacos al pastor: tender pork marinated in a pastor sauce, pineapples and cilantro (pictured below). Our other favorite is the El Guero:  think beer battered shrimp, chipotle aioli, and pickled onions on a flour tortilla. Their take on the classic taco is refreshing and flavorful.

Tequila Tuesdays: Happy hours are important, which is why Plomo brings us the ultimate Taco Tuesday. Not only are tacos $3 ALL DAY but the drink specials include $5 margaritas, $3 Modelo Especial, $5 Sangrias and $5 Micheladas.  We recommend trying out on of their creative cocktails, like the refreshing Zona Rosa or the Plomo’s Mule.
