Hunger Street Tacos

Does anyone know where to get a decent taco in this town? Just kidding – there are like 500 places…and we’ve been to many of them. Seriously though, we have a few favorites and Hunger St. Tacos in Winter Park is most definitely one of them.

Truth be told we’re a little shocked it took us so long to finally get to Hunger Street to check them out – not only because of our love of tacos but also because so many people buzz about it (in such a good way).

Aside from the food Hunger Street displays some of Central Florida’s most rad artwork/street graffiti. Concepted and created by graphic designers Roberto Vega and Rosario Martinez, architect Yankel Balderas and artist Liseth Amaya, you’ve probably either noticed this while driving by the restaurant, or perhaps have seen someone post some pics on Instagram (Hunger Street has their own Instagram if you want to check it out: Instagram.com/Hunger_Street). If you’d like to learn more about the artwork at Hunger Street visit the “Our Art” section of their website.

Now, if you’ve yet to experience Hunger Street yourself here’s a little taste of what you can expect.

Street Chips

The Street Chips are definitely something of a unique item on the menu. Essentially they are potato chips covered in hot sauce and lime. Could be ordered as a quick appetizer, or side dish with a meal (they are under the “Sides” feature on the menu).

  • Chori-Pollo Taco (far left). This taco consists of chorizo (an interesting addition to a taco dish), shredded chicken, onion, cilantro, avocado-tomatillo salsa, and lime.
  • Street Chips. Again, as mentioned above.
  • El Mañanero (top right). This taco is seared brisket, chorizo, refried beans, scrambled egg, Chihuahua cheese, avocado-tomatillo salsa, and lime (this place loves their lime).

  • Campechano (bottom right). This taco is seared brisket (more, more, more, please!), chorizo, onion, cilantro, avocado-tomatillo salsa, and lime.

Street Chips, Chicken Tinga Tostada, and Chori-Pollo Taco

  • Street Chips. Again, as mentioned above.
  • Chicken Tinga Tostada (left). This item consists of shredded chicken, chorizo, refried beans, red cabbage, sautéed onion, tomato, garlic, chipotle, crema fresca and sliced avocado on a crisp corn tortilla. I’m a big fan of raw cabbage so this was a “seller” for me. The chicken was very tasty and not at all dry. A recommendation, for sure!
  • Chori-Pollo Taco. Again, as mentioned above.

Do yourself and take a peek at the full Hunger St. Tacos menu. On my next visit I’m definitely eager to try the Esquites, Cucumber Salad, and the Suadero.

PRO TIP: Hunger Street is not open on Sundays. When a place is not open is usually when you crave it most, so you’ll have to find another way to get your fix if you’re ever craving tacos on a Sunday.

With that statement above, it was mentioned early on in the post there are many options for tacos in the Orlando/Central Florida area. I can honestly say it shouldn’t really be a competition here. Hunger Street has a taste and appeal that’s like no other “taco” place around. Their flavor, menu, and vibe are truly like no other place around. So really if you’re craving Hunger Street you’re craving Hunger Street, and that’s going to be what you want. If you want typical tacos just to satisfy your craving for tacos…well, there are countless places you can do that.

Have you been to Hunger St. Tacos? If so, what was your experience like?

* Lapiztola comes from the Spanish words lapis (pencil) and pistola (pistol). A play on words, it essentially means “my pencil is my weapon.” Their murals highlight Mexico’s social and political issues, from disappeared students to drug lords and migrants.
