Profile

In a city where you can get almost any cuisine in any neighborhood at any time of day, Tacu Tacu still thinks your life could be easier, and aims to combine your cravings for both Peruvian and Southeast Asian food in one sprawling, 80-item menu. There are many familiar friends—spring rolls, pad thai, tamales, empanadas—and intriguing strangers, like Champagne duck (half crispy duck in a Champagne-apple sauce) and chicken rolanda (chicken breast stuffed with onion, asparagus, shitake mushroom, carrots, and goat cheese). The fried Saigon dumplings are appropriately crispy; the beef of the lomo saltado is tender. But certain dishes fall short, which is inevitable with such a large menu: French fries are soggy, and a coconut rice accompanying the lomo saltado clashes with the flavor of an unnecessarily sweet sauce. Make Tacu Tacu your stop for drinks, which are varied and surprisingly delicious—the frozen Kamikaze (vodka and margarita mix) and Lemon Drop (vodka and lemonade) are hits, and they’re both under $10. The garish décor—including a mural that features several forks with legs impaling fish and vegetables and an upside-down water fountain—might make it a destination for the wilder residents of Williamsburg, but after a few frozen drinks, you won’t mind.
