What is in a name? In Taqueria Tsunami's case, a lot. The name Taqueria Tsunami was derived from the slogan "A Tidal Wave of Flavors" and brings together the best flavors of two cultures (Latin and Asian) from which their food is created. And Taqueria Tsunami's menu of decadent dishes and libations is sure to please. Wet your whistle with one of their margaritas, signature cocktails, craft brews or sangria, then dive into a starter like calamari, Asian nachos or empanadas, or even the avocado cilantro egg rolls or mini poke tacos. For your main, go light with the refreshing Southwest or Shanghai shrimp salads, traditional with tacos (the Korean carnitas and Gringo tacos are to die for), or take your palate on an adventure and try the South of the Border or tuna poke Tsunami bowls, or the short rib or garden shrimp quesadillas. The fried yucca and tots with jalapeño queso are just a few of the sides that are sure to please. Finish off the meal with something sweet like the s’mores egg rolls or churros. Trust us, whatever you choose from Taqueria Tsunami's menu is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
Get your Taqueria Tsunami fix every day of the week, from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday.
While Taqueria Tsunami has multiple locations, find the downtown Gainesville location at 106 Spring St. SE at the corner of Spring and Main streets in the Gainesville Renaissance development. Look for them diagonally across from Sweet Magnolia's Cafe & Bakery and next to Onward Reserve.
