In an interview with Notimex, Cisneros said locals and tourists alike can enjoy a wide variety of tacos; from traditional asada, chorizo and pastor along with various seafood, such as shrimp, lobster and marlin.
“What we want is to have a variety styles and flavors which each restaurant offers, and thereby people have many options to choose,” he said.
Regarding selected for the Taco Festival date, the organizer explained that he chose September 16 because it’s a long holiday weekend and will appeal to locals and tourists in the area for the celebrations.
