This sidewalk taco stand by the owners of neighbouring Sumerian Café features open-style tacos (tostadas) such as this chilled, light and refreshing ceviche variety – the perfect bite for peak outdoor temperatures. Its two fried corn tortillas are topped with bite-sized chunks of ultra-fresh raw sea bass. The garnish is a juicy, nearly thirst quenching tangle of fresh herbs and greens, brightened with citrus, coriander and jalapeño, and paired with paper-thin slices of radish and cucumber.


The two other tostada options on the opening menu are a delicious pulled-pork variety (45RMB) – moist, slow-cooked meat packing cayenne heat and topped with homemade salsa – as well as a beautiful ‘ceviche’ of summer vegetables (45RMB).

Each is crafted with care in the open mini-kitchen at this shack with outdoor-only seating, perfect for tacos al fresco.
