You Haven people... you are BEER teases. You're truffled mac-and-cheese teases.You're giving the entire OC foodie community a burger with arugula and blue [cheese] balls.
What is for sure is that the team behind Haven will be opening a quick-service taquería-cervecería called taco asylum [counterculture lowercasing theirs] at the Camp in Costa Mesa, the same place as Native Foods and 118 Degrees, this winter. These won't be carne asada or carne adobada tacos, no sirree: Daniels is talking about curried paneer and non-traditional tacos like that.
We wondered when the gourmet lonchera taco concept would land in a bricks-and-mortar place; sounds like just a few months. Let us know when you open, guys; we'll wait a few weeks, then cry "¡viva México!" and let slip the Gustavo of war.
