Wapo Taco: Authentic Mexican Taqueria in Hallandale Beach

Page 2 of 2

Walk in and grab a seat at the U-shaped bar. Depending on where you snag a chair, you'll have clear views of tortillas being made or pork slowly cooking in a spinning top (similar to how shawarma is cooked). Onions hold the pork up from falling and add an aromatic flavor to the meat, while pineapple perched on the top gets residual heat and releases some of its fruit juice down below.

Chips, pico de gallo, morita (chipotle), and guacamole are made from scratch daily. Mexican beers on tap include Pacifico, Dos XX, and Modelo. But nothing quite goes with tacos like a michelada ($4.99), a combination of tomato juice, lime, and beer. If you like and can handle a lot of heat, opt for the michelada Cubano -- it's got Worcestershire and will numb your lips.
