    Torchy’s Tacos' Tokyo Drifter is in pole position and ready to rev up taste buds with its spicy-sweet flavors as May’s Taco of the Month. Available at participating Torchy’s locations May 1-31, the Tokyo Drifter features teriyaki glazed pulled pork, fried wonton strips, sweet & sour veggie slaw, sesame Sriracha mayo and cilantro, served with a lime wedge on a flour tortilla, for $5.75.

    “At Torchy’s, we love to play with interesting ingredients in our tacos, and the flavors in the Tokyo Drifter might make you do a double take it’s so good,” says Mike Rypka, founder of Torchy’s Tacos. “This taco’s loaded up with tender, teriyaki glazed pulled pork and topped with a fresh and tangy sweet & sour veggie slaw and cilantro. Add some Sriracha mayo heat and the crunch of crispy wontons, and it’s no surprise the Tokyo Drifter has come to be a number one fan-favorite for many of our taco junkies.”

    Guests can pair the Tokyo Drifter with Torchy’s featured May margarita, the Raspberry Meltdown. Available frozen or on the rocks, the Raspberry Meltdown is made with 100 percent agave tequila and topped with a float of Razzmatazz Raspberry Liqueur.

    Portions of the proceeds from Taco of the Month sales go to Torchy’s charitable partners, including the Make a Wish Foundation, MD Anderson and Phoenix House.
