Al’s Taco is a popular store with branches in Toul Kork and Beong Keng Kang. The store alters their tacos to suit Asian tastes so it’s suitable for those who aren’t used to Mexican spices yet. They have fusion options like Korean Beef, similar to bulgogi; Satay Chicken; and Satay Tofu that has a little kick from lime juice and is also a little bit spicy, too. You can also choose between a crunchy shell or a soft shell for your tacos.

The Itacate store has beautiful decor with a romantic ambiance and high quality food. Every Fajita Friday, they offer two special fillings - Tiger Shrimp Fajita and Lobster Fajita - that are imported from Canada. They also offer Chimichanga and Enchiladas. The names are hard to pronounce for Cambodians, but once you try them, you’ll never want to forget them! You can also borrow sombreros in the shop for some photos, too XD
