I know I’m a few weeks late on this post but I’m a huge HUGE fan of Yardbird and I wanted to share this dericiousness with ya’ll anyway! For those of you who aren’t familiar with Yardbird, it is THE yakitori restaurant to go to in Hong Kong (I promise a detailed post with pictures soon).
For one night only, Chef Matt Abergel of Yardbird and the Yardbird team hosted a Mexican pop-up shop at Shake Em’ Buns! People were lining up for hours just to get a taste of their tacos! It was a tough call, but I’d have to say my favorite of the night was the Cod Tempura Taco as featured above. That Taco Cray !!!
Tacos, Ceviche, Tequila, Cerveza, Madness!!
Matt, Lindsay, May & the rest of the Yardbird team, you guys did an awesome job! Congrats with keeping up with hungry custies and keeping your vocal cords in tact!
