Bar Collins at Loews Miami Beach
On National Taco Day, Bar Collins will offer two unique tacos that celebrate the traditional taco while weaving in international flavors. As Executive Chef, Christopher Aguirre describes: For our Wagyu Short Rib Taco, we slow cook the meat for 48 hours and then grill it over Japanese charcoal. The blue corn we use comes directly from Oaxaca, and the caviar and black truffle salsa take it over the top.” “For the Smoked Crispy Rock Shrimp Taco, we lightly smoke rock shrimp, then tempura fried for crispiness. Sweet and smoky passion fruit salsa finishes the bite with a drizzle of lime crema to balance out the flavors.” Bar Collins is located at Loews Miami Beach Hotel 1601 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 www.loewshotels.com
