olitas Tacos & Margaritas just took their menu to the next level. They have introduced over a dozen refreshing items. Executive Chef Deborah Schneider’s menu features new antojitos, specialty dishes and her signature dish — the Super Taco.
The Super Taco became famous in 2009 when solita’s sister restaurant, SOL, introduced it’s bold flavor to Newport Beach. It is acclaimed for pushing the basic taco to its limit by toasting, frying, adding different salsas, cheeses and garnishes. It actually won the prestigious OC’s Best Taco Award.
“Tacos may not be considered a serious meal by most, but here at solita, we take them very seriously“ explained Executive Chef Deborah Schneider.
When you walk into solita you will experience what is like to be in modern Mexico. The interior detail and furnishing were hand made by Mexican artisans and craftsmen. All these finishing touches give the space charm and sophistication. The 150-seat space offers 80 seats indoors and 70 seats on a beautiful patio and indoor/outdoor bar.
solita has five Super Taco options that leave guests always wanting more. A fan favorite Super Taco is the Vampiro and is inspired by both sides of the borders. The Vampiro features double tortilla with cheese, serranos, green onions, guacamole and your choice of meat. Another delicious option you should consider trying is the tasty chicken verde that features pulled chicken, salsa verde, poblano chiles, cheese, creama and avocado. We made sure to not forget dessert!. solita has you covered with their “demonic” brownie that is rich in chocolate and topped with salted caramel pecan sauce, ice cream and strawberry rum salsa.
