We went to a fun restaurant this week… Velvet Taco on Washington and Durham. We are always impressed by all the restaurants and bars on Washington Avenue that make this street so lively.
The concrete floor, stainless steel counters and yellow pipes on the ceiling create a modern dining room. They have nice clean bathrooms and a lots of fun table options: counter height along the windows, small intimate ones and big familial ones.
They have really adventurous and eclectic tacos and you kind of want to try them all! Their kid menu is small but effective! They also offer rotisserie chicken if tacos are not for you.
Velvet Taco prides themselves in using only fresh ingredients, they make their own tortillas and recycle! Good food and feeling good about it, pretty cool right?
I chose the Shrimp and Grits Taco and it was delicious. It was spicy but not too much and the creamy grits completed perfectly the crispy shrimps.
We loved the casualness and easy going atmosphere at Velvet Taco. We might have brought the age average up by at least 10 years but they didn’t mind!
There were other families with younger children as well as young couples and groups of friends, all sharing a beautiful moment. So, please try Velvet Taco where you are guaranteed delicious tacos, friendly staff and relaxed ambiance.
