Tiki Taco Adds a New Location and a New Dessert

Local artists, entrepreneurs, and now restaurateurs, Lyndon and Lindsey Wade, and their mother, Judy Rush, have opened a second location on Troost Avenue for Tiki Taco, near the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Rockhurst University in a former 1950’s gas station offering the same food and drink menu, skateboard-inspired décor, and dedication to local artwork as the original Tiki Taco on 39th Street. New to this location is a nice-sized outdoor patio and an opportunity to partner with their neighbors, including their recent collaboration with Jamie Howard, chef/owner of High Hopes Ice Cream, who had been working with them for months on their own version of the popular ice cream treat Choco Taco, when Klondike announced it planned to discontinue the ice-cream treat in July. Their version, Tiki Choco, is a taco-shaped waffle cone filled with cinnamon churro-flavored ice cream and dipped in chocolate. With a host of California-inspired tacos and burritos on the menu and a full list of tropical cocktails, the Tiki Choco is not the only reason to go check out Tiki Taco, but it is a darn good one.
