I have been meaning to write this blog for months. But, life, as always gets head of me.
Cheechako Taco is a great little taco joint here in Plattsburgh.
They have a great selection of vegetarian options:
The inside of the shop is very Mondrian inspired and there is art for sale from local artists.
There are little touches to make this place unique:
Not to mention they also do deliveries on one of their two mopeds:
A while back, I mentioned that I spoke with Jamse, the owner of Cheechako Taco about a vegan burrito/taco. We put our heads together and came up the The Forks, named after Au Sable Forks, the place where I grew up. This creation is entirely vegan and delicious.
The Forks can either be a burrito or a taco. The burrito version comes with rice. The Forks has tequila lime tempeh, jalapenos, tomatoes, red onions, and lettuce. I get it with guacamole too.
I paired the first sampling of The Forks in burrito form with a Copper Ale from Otter Creek Brewing.
This was one of the first meals I ate on the deck of our house. Very tasty, but I am not a fan of rice usually, so I should have remembered to ask for this without rice.
This past Sunday, I went back to try The Forks in taco form:
I love The Forks as a taco! So yummy! Great job preparing this, Althea! I will get this as a taco from now on.
Cheechako Taco is now open for late night hours on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from
Midnight to 3 am. Check out their cool light show in the alley, too! Find them on facebook to keep up to date on all things Cheechako!
Have a great day everyone and keep cooking!
