Marg’s World Taco Bistro Restaurant Review

: It could be the daily happy hour, the central location in historic downtown or the house-pressed flour tortillas that make Marg’s World Taco Bistro a hotspot for locals and tourists in Truckee. The industrial décor displays iron and steel artwork by local artists; roll up garage doors connect the lively atmosphere inside with patio seating out front. The menu carries culinary traditions from around the world using the tortilla as its vehicle. Try a vindaloo taco with roasted chicken; Vietnamese banh mi taco with marinated pork, shredded carrots and sriracha mayo; Philly steak taco or a Greek taco with a lamb, feta-mint tzatziki and cucumber-tomato relish. (Enchiladas and tamales are also available.) Black beans and hearty Spanish rice come with the tacos, and smooth, zesty guacamole accompanies all plates. Look for Mexican chocolate ice cream and churros for dessert. Along with beer and wine, creative margaritas combine simple and exotic ingredients such as habanero- or jalapeño-infused tequila and fresh kiwi purée.
