Tahona is launching Tacos Omakase every Thursday, a first of its kind here in San Diego. Each week, Chef Adrian will feature a four course tasting menu paired with mezcal available only in our private tasting room. It is in this intimate setting that your host will walk you through the nuances of each pairing, from the ingredients used to how the mezcal was produced.
Omakase is a form of Japanese dining in which guests leave themselves in the hands of a chef and receive a meal which is seasonal, elegant, artistic and uses the finest ingredients available.
– Scallop Tostada with avocado, grapefruit, red onions, fresh herbs, paired with Derrumbes Salmiana
– Maitake Asada Taco with spiced beans, avocado, morita mayo, onions, cilantro paired with Amaras Cupreata
– Cauliflower Taco with mole negro, crumbled chicharron, pickled jalapeno paired with Don Amado Espadin
– Flan paired with Mezcal Animas Ensamble

Tony Gurnoe, Director of Horticulture from the San Diego Botanic Garden will be talking about the plants and their origins.
The Agave is nothing like the other plants: it is like a gigantic herb that can simultaneously produce sugars and at the same time offer qualities that herbs most typically offer.
It fights for survival with life spans from 6 to 35 years in the harshest conditions: a perfect example of biological resistence.
During the talk, bites will be served and Steven Sadri, our mezcal sommelier, will walk you through a full mezcal sampling.
