If you love croissants and you love tacos (ummm, who doesn’t?) then you're going to be very excited about San Francisco bakery Vive La Tarte's new hybrid creation: the Tacro.
The Tacro (a portmanteau for “taco” and “croissant,” which was probably obvious by now) is a croissant shell stuffed with savory fillings and folded like a taco. The savory creation will come in three varieties: chicken and avocado, slow-cooked pulled pork and barbecued jackfruit, so that vegetarians can get in on the tasty fun.
Vive La Tarte was started by husband-and-wife team Arnaud Goethals and Julie Vandermeersch in 2011 as a bakery pop-up in the back of their Volkswagen van, and quickly found a following, which allowed them to open a brick-and-mortar location in SoMa in 2015.
The new Ferry Building shop will be the bakery’s second location and the menu will be a streamlined version of the baked goods offered at their flagship shop, including the very popular seasonal fruit-stuffed croissants, smashed avocado toast, salad bowls and sandwiches on house sourdough bread. There will also be espresso drinks by Sightglass Coffee, coconut cold brew coffee and turmeric lattes.
You’ll find the new spot in the former Dandelion Chocolate space just outside of the northern entrance. It’s right next to Fort Point Brewery in case you want to double down on your happiness and wash your Tacro down with a quality craft beer.
The gates to Tacro heaven open on Friday, January 19 and will be open seven days a week from 7am–7pm.
