Ohhhh...Barracuda

I'll go ahead and say it right now, this spot is the best thing to come out of Tchoup in a long time.



With so many options for Mexican cuisine in New Orleans, you can agree or disagree when it comes in fresh margaritas and traditional Mexican tacos...but this is it.

When I lived in Washington D.C. back in 2011, a friend of mine would bring me to someone's literal home in Falls Church where they cooked up some of the most amazing tacos I have ever had. This family transformed their living room into a seating area for grub while they cooked the most amazing meats outside. 

In the 6 years since I have been back, I have been unlucky in finding a taco spot that is reminiscent of the tacos I enjoyed in Falls Church, Virginia. Until now.


Although I have not spoken to the owners personally, I can tell from social media it is a young family of three with a little one on the way. Every photo they post on social media shows their gratitude in their smiles alone...but the tacos are without a doubt where it's at. Fresh meats, homemade tortillas, margaritas on tap.



And don't even get me started on their avocado salsa. I literally don't even know what they call it exactly, but it is the best goddamn thing I have tasted since Port of Call's Neptune Monsoon!



I know Summer is basically here, and it is hot as Hades, but do yourself a solid and head to Barracuda's on Tchoup to cool down with fresh margaritas on tap and the most amazing, traditional tacos I have been able to find in NOLA. You're welcome.
