According to a recent permit filing, Tacombi will be expanding to the Wicker Park area at 1442 N Milwaukee Avenue.
“This will be our second location in the Chicago area. We’re currently wrapping up construction in the next week or two, and then we will be waiting on liquor licensing,” Dieter Wiechmann, Chief Creative Officer of Tacombi, told What Now Chicago.
According to Tacombi’s website, “Tacombi was born on the balmy beaches of the Yucatán in 2006 with little more than a cloudless, palm-filled dream of sharing the beauty of authentic Mexican culture with the world.”
“We purchased a 1963 “combi” bus in Mexico City, wheeled it slowly (very slowly) through the Yucatan peninsula, and parked it comfortably in the once-sleepy, now wide awake, beach town of Playa del Carmen. The engine was scrapped, the transmission sold, seats swapped for cooking equipment, and the roof was reeled back to produce a taco serving stand with warmth, charm, and character.”
“That small bus has continued an adventure of transformation & passion. We opened our first taqueria in a garage in downtown New York in 2010, and have since opened neighborhood taquerias in New York, Washington DC, and Miami. Within our taqueria walls, we also started producing our own authentic, traditional “Vista Hermosa” tortilla products to preserve and share the flavors of Mexico and offer these products through stores across the country.”
“Tacombi has built an environment for those who want to share their innate positivity and professionalism in the service of others. Our neighborhood taquerias are part of larger communities and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve them every single day.”
