36Tacos is the marriage of Lisbon’s most traditional hip-hop bar, and the queen of Mexican food, Martha Tomé. Before even finding our fist location, the front door of o36 was our meeting spot to catch up, dream of burgers, sauces, and cocktails for our to-become-venture. In fact, the first trials of our burgers were catered for the private parties we used to organize along with the o36 crew in run down mansions downtown. As far as Martha, in our first week of business we were told that if we were thinking of adding a Mexican section to our menu we should use Martha’s tortillas, totopos and sauces. It only seemed obvious to merge hip hop and tacos into a single passion, and that is how 36Tacos was created. Every month, the VJ team and Martha sit around a table and discuss what will be the 3 tacos of the month. Traditional dishes turned into vegan or legit plant based indigenous recipes.
Demystifying veganism through Mexico’s millennial culture of harmony with nature is our goal and we decided to do it through a monthly changing 3 pieces menu. 3 recipes a month, 36 per year.
