Velvet Taco - by our friends @biteswithbeauties
Velvet Taco is in the NODA area of the Queen City, located inside of Optimist Hall. If you haven’t been to Optimist Hall, it encompasses an abundance of eateries that vary from sweet to savory and everything in between. The concept of Optimist Hall is, you pick a place, place your order, get a buzzer and when your order is ready simply pick it up and find a spot to enjoy.
We stumbled upon Velvet Taco and based on the long line, knew this was a place we needed to try. The menu offers a great variety of meats to seafood and veggie options. The menu also includes some not so traditional options too! Feeling risky? Go ahead and try the brunch Chicken & Waffle taco. We did and there were no regrets! Crispy chicken tenders with a blend of ingredients that absolutely brought this taco together. To top it off, all of that goodness was stuffed in to a waffle tortilla! Sweet and savory at its finest!
Our recommendations include of course, the Chicken & Waffle taco and the Slow Roasted Angus Brisket taco. However, don’t be shy, go ahead and dive in to their other great menu items. There’s a little something for everyone to enjoy.
