SHAKA TACO - KAPAA
We are blessed to have a little beach shack on the beautiful Island of Kauai. Not far from our place is a little taco shop called Shaka Tacos. During our last stay we ventured into Shaka for the first time. After several bad mexican food experiences on Kauai we were a bit skeptical and not too excited. After looking at the menu which was posted on a large board, we were positive that this would be another waste of time and money. The menu is very simple. Tacos, Burritos, Tacquitos, Sopes, Quesidilla and Tortas done with veggies, shredded chicken, shredded beef, carne asada, pork, ahi or shrimp. We opted for the chicken tacquitos ($7.00) and a shredded beef taco ($4.00) and carne asada taco ($5.00). The food arrived quickly with a small pile of freshly cooked tortilla chips. First bite was the shredded beef. Wow....it actually had good flavor. Next came the carne asada. Wow....good flavor again. Now onto the tacquitos. Good flavor again. All three were good. I would order them all again. The only thing missing was a good salsa or hot sauce. If Shaka had some good sauce the tacos would be the best on Kauai. Instead they offer bottles of Tapatio sauce (which I love). The only other complaint would be the prices. $7.00 for tacquitos and $5.00 for a small taco is just too much. I will return again to Shaka Tacos.
