On the Menu: Upcoming Atlanta Dining Events

El Taco's King Chili Pepper Menu - August 17-21

Our favorite neighborhood stop for fried chicken tacos, margaritas and strollers (if you go before 7) launches its five day King Chili Pepper special menu starting Wednesday and running through August 21.

While King Chili Pepper may sound like the title of a movie available behind a beaded curtain at the back of a video store, it's actually chef Scott Keefer's showcase of the versatility of chilies.  Some highlights from the menu include fried panela cheese with mirasol chili sauce and corn salsa; salt cod croquetas with aioli, capers and pickled cubanelle chilies; grilled swordfish pinchos with orange and cascabel chili sauce; and chocolate and ancho chili creme brulee for dessert.  Yum!

Hit up El Taco's website for directions and reservations.
