Dish: The Rum House’s Taco Trifecta

Along with More than 200 rums from all over the world, The Rum House features 15 different specialty tacos on its Caribbean-influenced menu that make for a festive nosh this month. The Taco Trifecta, says General Manager Eric Nicaud, is a choice of three from the diverse global roundup. “The Calypso Beef is probably our most popular,” says Nicaud. Made with flank steak steeped in The Rum House’s homemade citrus-ginger-soy “island marinade,” the taco is set off by homemade guacamole, lime cream and spicy papaya-based “Paw Paw” sauce. Another favorite is the sumptuous Crispy Fish, beer-battered and deep-fried Mahi Mahi paired with jalapeño coleslaw. And consider The Carolina, a mélange of 24-hour slow-roasted pulled pork, tangy vinegar-based sauce jalapeño coleslaw and roasted corn relish. What to pair with all these bold flavors? Rum, naturally. “We’ve got one for every taco,” Nicaud says.
