Rubio’s Restaurants, the brand known for coastal cuisine and its fish taco, is continuing its culinary evolution by going tropical with the addition of its sustainable Tropical Shrimp burrito and Two Taco Plate. These new menu items are inspired by the flavors of the Yucatan region of Mexico and represent Rubio’s dedication to being a friend of the ocean and serving sustainable seafood whenever possible.
Both chef-crafted dishes, created by the Rubio’s culinary team, are served in warm flour tortillas and feature sustainable shrimp that’s been marinated in a blend of ancho chiles, herbs, garlic, and olive oil. Both dishes are topped with pickled onions, a fruity mango-habanero salsa, and a salsa that highlights flavors from the Yucatan such as achiote, garlic, cumin, orange juice and lime. The Tropical Shrimp Two Taco plate is served with tortilla chips and pinto beans, while the burrito comes complete with guacamole, Mexican rice, black beans, and romaine lettuce.
“As part of our culinary progression, we continue to incorporate globally inspired ingredients with the fresh flavors of Southern California,” says Ralph Rubio, cofounder of Rubio’s. “These unique flavor combinations, paired with our continually growing sustainable seafood offerings, provide Rubio’s guests with delicious coastal dishes.”
