Tucked behind Jumbo’s, The Taco Joint menu features specialty dishes from Morey’s Piers Executive Chef Wally Jurusz including: the Mahi Mahi a la Plancha Taco with shaved cabbage and red onions, pico de gallo, and fresh crema; the Korean Short Rib Taco featuring Korean BBQ beef with cabbage-cucumber slaw; the Carne Asada Taco with San Diego style marinated beef in a corn tortilla with shaved lettuce, pepper jack cheese, pico de gallo and salsa roja; fried cheesecake topped with choice of dulce de leche or bananas; and much more.
