ST. LOUIS — A popular spot known for its tacos is getting ready to introduce some new items on its menu next week.
Mission Taco Joint said with winter approaching, its new dishes reflect anticipated consumer dining habits for the season.
The new dishes will be on the menu beginning Nov. 2. The menu includes a new breakfast burrito, quesadillas, empanadas and more. There will also be a sheet pan nacho kit to make at-home.
“We usually add a few new items to the menu seasonally, but this menu reflects some items that we’ve never offered before. For example, we used to only offer a quesadilla on the kid’s menu, but now, we’ll have a few variations for the adults, too. We have had cries for a breakfast burrito for years so now we have our Chorihuevo burrito. Especially in today’s climate, we wanted to offer some new types of dishes that people will be excited to try,” Chef/Co-Owner Jason Tilford said.
In addition to expanding its menu, Mission Taco Joint will donate a percentage of sales from its taco party kits to Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition.
