Takumi Taco in Urbanspace Vanderbilt
230 Park Ave, New York, NY 10169
As a part of the Kate & Roselle go to lunch on Thursdays saga, we ended up at Urbanspace Vanderbilt.
I was only going to order tacos and I liked the sound of chipotle shrimp. At first I thought it was 2 tacos for $4.85 (or something like that). But apparently it was only for one so the cashier told me “do you just want the bento it comes with a side salad and a side of your choice?” I suckered in and said yes, the total with tax came out to $12.75. Which is an averge city price for a lunch meal around here.
I asked her what the best side is and she gave me the choice between Japanese rice & beans and this grilled corn salad. I chose the grilled corn salad. I should have went with the rice & beans because the corn salad was a little mediocre for my taste. I think it would have been fine without the corn. But the side salad with just the greens were good because I liked the dressing they’ve splashed on it.
Did I finish my meal? YES. The tacos were amazing! I loved the crunch shell and the chipotle sauce with the shrimp was an amazing combo. I fought hard to finish the corn salad but I did because I didn’t want to waste my $12.75, lol. I’ll try the rice & beans next time.
