HAPPY HOUR | M-F 2-6p and 9-11p

$2 off beers | $1 off tacos

Specializing in non-traditional gourmet tacos, taco asylum pulls from a wide array of global cuisines, showcasing interesting ingredients and unique preparations. Le Cordon Bleu trained Executive Chef Greg Daniels has carefully thought out and uniquely constructed a menu of taco offerings, each with a distinct flavor profile, ingredients, and accompaniments. Its unique marinades and sauces are made in-house and from-scratch, using only the freshest ingredients, sustainable meats and seafood, and products from local farms and vendors wherever possible. In addition, Chef Daniels’ Ghost Chili, Red Savina, and Cayenne housemade hot sauces are available for purchase ($9.75 for a 5 oz. bottle).

To elevate and complement the overall dining experience, Beverage Director Wil Dee has put together a unique beer selection comprised of only craft beer, with six styles on tap and more than 30 canned beers, as well as select Belgian large-format options. Guests may also enjoy a unique selection of all-natural bottled sodas, many of which are handcrafted in small batches – all priced at $3.50. Aguas frescas made daily in-house are $2.50. Mimosas made with Sofia Blanc de Blancs Sparkling Wine and fresh-squeezed orange juice are offered for $6 every Sunday.

Open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., taco asylum is located at The CAMP (2937 S. Bristol St, B102, Costa Mesa, CA 92626), between Native Foods and SEED People’s Market. Happy Hour specials of $2 off all beers and $1 off all tacos are offered Monday through Friday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. All food and non-alcoholic items are conveniently designed for carryout.
