Move over Crafted, Elon’s own artisan taco restaurant opened its doors this past fall and has become a regular dining spot for students and local residents alike. Tangent Eat + Bar offers a wide array of specialty tacos as well as other dishes that can be paired perfectly with their beverage menu. Whether you’re a student at Elon or just in the area, Tangent’s tacos should not be missed.
While you can’t go wrong with a basic Chicken, Steak or Shrimp Taco 101, their specialty tacos are the reason you will be waiting in line to be seated.
The Roasted Pork Taco has been slow roasted, creating a sweet developed taste which is enhanced with an apple salsa.
The Blackened Shrimp Taco has a flavorful char to it and the addition of the fresh vegetables and mango sauce, perfectly balances out the spice.
The Fried Green Tomato is a recent discovery but possibly the most surprising in flavor. The unripened tomato comes alive with flavor in this unique dish.
The Chicken and Waffle Taco is a personal favorite with tender chicken strips covered in a maple slaw and bacon maple mayo, giving it the sweet taste of the southern specialty dish it is.
Finally, the menu must have is the Fried Corn on the Cob which you can smell from a mile away as the truffle butter provides a full flavor that will enliven your taste buds.
Tangent has a dish for everyone and is an affordable restaurant for the perfect snack or meal after a full day of classes.
