Best Rabbit Tacos: Fly Bar & Restaurant

Best Rabbit Tacos

Usually, when you find rabbit on the menu, it’s either gonna be a super-simple farm-to-table dish or something classically European. Fly goes in a totally unexpected direction with its diminutive braised rabbit tacos, and man, does it pay off. The meat is slow-cooked in liquid until super-tender and spicy, hand-pulled, and accessorized with queso fresco and a subtly fiery habanero gastrique, but you still know you’re getting a taste of something more unique than pork shoulder or chicken. And, like Red Mesa Cantina’s duck tacos, they’re the perfect gastronomic “gateway drug” to lead tentative eaters into more adventurous culinary territory.
