Taco Medic has opened a delicious outpost in Auckland’s CBD, just in time for summer

Since setting up its first North Island taqueria on Ponsonby Road earlier this year, Taco Medic (originally from Queenstown) has become a go-to for those seeking simple, tasty food and a lively atmosphere — its popularity proved by its always-busy locations. That said, there is always plenty to go around, especially today as Taco Medic opens the doors to a second Auckland outpost on Quay Street — the next in a long line of Mexican diners to come.

Furthering Taco Medic’s fiesta vibe, this new waterfront eatery clearly has summer on its mind, with a courtyard that overlooks the harbour and a frozen margarita menu that is hard to rival. But on top of the new offerings from Taco Medic, including a bar and a raft of new dishes, it is the classics that we expect to see diners coming back for time and time again.

It’s Taco Medic’s commitment to the cuisine that makes it so adored. One hundred percent gluten-free tacos are made and prepared in-store, with flavours like the Adobo Chicken and the Al Pastor being some of the most popular (alongside an abundance of plant-based offerings). “It all starts with our fresh handmade tortillas, making all of our products in-house, great quality meats, fresh fish and topped with our selection of house-made hot sauces,” Co-Founder Robbie McGillivray shares with me. “The final part of the recipe is love and passion for great food.”

Thanks to its steadfast dedication to bringing quality tacos to the masses, Taco Medic Quay Street is one destination we will happily welcome, and with summer just around the corner, we’re predicting that this spot will swiftly become popular with city-slickers seeking mouthwatering food and a laid-back, convivial atmosphere.

This competition is now closed.
