Taco of the Month – The Rio Gold!

Rio Gold Taco

Here at Mondo Taco, we are constantly in search of new flavors inspired by different international cuisines. With an ever-changing menu of delicious tacos, we hope our ‘Taco of the Month’ spotlights inspire you to try some of our new and old gems that you may not have tasted before. Make 2017 the year you try every taco on our menu!

For this month, we are highlighting a taco of Olympic proportions – the Rio Gold!

Inspiration Behind the Taco

The Rio Gold is a Brazilian-style taco inspired by the 2016 Summer Olympic Games and our never-ending quest to serve you an unending variety of international flavors in our homemade tortillas.


  • Brazilian dry rub seasoned grilled pork
  • Jalapeño pepita salsa
  • Red onions
  • Cilantro

Why We Love It

Savory, spicy, and nutty, the Rio Gold holds up to its name and delivers a powerful winning flavor. The perfectly seasoned grilled pork is refreshingly paired with diced red onions and fresh cilantro for a distinctively zesty and fragrant flavor kick. Served on a homemade tortilla and topped with a jalapeño pepita (aka pumpkin seeds) salsa, the Rio Gold is flavor gold, silver, and bronze #goals.

We know that our Rio Gold is sure to please! Make sure you head to Mondo Taco today and try the Rio Gold!

We have more than 30 different tacos to try! We also have vegan and vegetarian options that are sure to impress. If you’re gluten-intolerant, order your taco “dino-style” wrapped in a cabbage leaf. Feeling extra hungry? Try your favorite flavors in a wrap or bowl form. And as always, if you can’t decide, why not order a few different tacos for a mix of old favorites and new stars?
