Like Mexican food? Let’s Taco-Bout-It!

September 14th, 2021 by

MINI of Escondido is all about you… and what you eat.

San Diego food and MINI do not exactly go hand in hand, but really; it should. Why? Well, there’s nothing like good food to bring the family together (except after school homework, of course). And we like to think that the MINI brand is synonymous with community, so why not bring the two together? In fact, we like the local food so much in Escondido, we took our 2022 MINI Hardtop 4 Door to Latino’s Market for a shoot recently. Not only is it conveniently located off of Center Street in Downtown Esco and super close to Classical Academy Middle School, it’s the best place for street tacos in all of North San Diego County. While you’re waiting for that video to drop on YouTube, check out our handy local guide for all things street taco in Escondido by reading below!

We’ve got some local favorites, and it’s not Taco Bell!

But first, know that we’re huge supporters of local exclusive events too! It’s one of the reasons we decided to sponsor the San Diego Taco Fest for 2021 and showcase the new BMW M3. So while you’ll find a hidden treasure below, Taco Fest is a great opportunity for you to check out a wide range of literally hundreds of kinds of amazing tacos, all in one place! It’s a culinary experience for those who love Mexican food, but more importantly, it’s a special event that brings the MINI, BMW, and taco loving community together.
