It’s National Taco Day!

Well, not exactly. National Taco Day is celebrated annually on October 4 (this Sunday).

However, ‘…every day is taco day at Chilitos’, according to CEO/Managing Director Christopher Boxe, who happen to be prepping for their annual National Taco Day event.

This go ’round, due to COVID-19 restrictions that impacted opening hours, all celebrations in recognition of Taco Day will take place at the Tex-Mex-inspired eatery today.

Chilitos has also added a new menu item – the Hot Jamexican Fried Chicken Tacos, inspired by the spicy, flavourful Nashville hot chicken.

This addition spun out of a successful year-old partnership with The Best Dressed Chicken that was a hit.

Imagine Best Dressed Chicken Breast strips coated in Jamexican chilli oil, topped with scallion crema slaw and a cilantro corn salsa served in warm soft/hard tacos.

Yeah, we’re speechless, too.

Chilitos Jamexican is a Jamaican-Mexican fusion restaurant situated at 88 Hope Road in Kingston.

Operations started circa ’07, and in 2015, Boxe and his business partners became the principals of the popular in-crowd haunt.

Last year, for National Taco Day, Chilitos hosted its first Taco Day celebrations in partnership with The Best Dressed Chicken.

Today, despite the challenges businesses are facing due to the pandemic, this year’s festivities are highly anticipated.

Also, on the heels of National Vodka Day (also celebrated on October 4), the weekend’s about to be lit!
