The Castro is no stranger to bawdy restaurant names (see: The Sausage Factory, Castro Tarts, Curry Boyzz), but it's about to get its most explosive moniker yet from a newcomer: Tacorgasmico, which opens tomorrow in the former Blue Restaurant space on Market. As Hoodline reports, it's the brainchild of Guanajuato native Eduardo Sandoval, who comes from the family behind Bay Area taqueria mini-chain La Corneta.
The menu offers some authentic Yucatecan dishes along with the standard super burritos, including cochinita and pollo pibil, ceviche tostadas, and panuchos. There are tacos, quesadillas, and burritos, of course, but sopes, gorditas, and tlayudas are also part of the mix, as well as housemade empanadas stuffed with Oaxaca cheese. To drink, Tacorgasmico offers housemade aguas frescas, a boozy horchata, and beers on tap (including a gluten-free watermelon option). The funky pink-and-purple decor features a mural from Precita Eyes; if you'd rather dine in, they're offering citywide delivery through Eat24. Hours will be 11 am-11 pm daily. And as for the name, Sandoval has no regrets: "It has a nice ring to it when you hear it a few times," he told Hoodline.
