BC Cafe Celebrates National Taco Day Featuring "Taco's Greatest Hits"

Once again, a made-up holiday steals our hearts. This time, it's National Taco Day. The taco, you'll be fascinated to know, predates the arrival of Europeans in Mexico, making it a truly authentic dish. And, although the first tacos were basically corn tortillas used as a way to hold tiny fish, we've since discovered it's the perfect food.

No one knows the versatility of the taco better than BC Cafe's Brett Chiavari who is celebrating National Taco Day with some unique creations.
