Tacos are definitely on trend in Nashville these days! With all the new taco shops opening in town, you’d think we would get tired of them. Not the case! Each place we’ve tried has been distinct from the rest, and Bajo Sexto is no exception. It’s sister restaurant is Adele’s, so there’s no chance it won’t wow you!
We visited the Sylvan Park location (the second location is in the Country Music Hall of Fame). There’s plenty of outdoor and indoor seating, but we’d recommend sitting outside to be a little removed from the hubbub of the kitchen. Looking around, you’ll find families, tables of friends, and even first dates – it’s got a casual vibe that’s suitable for any group.
We started our meal with the guacamole of the day – on our visit, it was peach (hello, peach truck season)! We weren’t sure what to expect, but it was awesome. The tartness and juiciness of the bits of peach paired well with the smooth and creamy avocado. And man are their chips good! We would’ve finished the whole basket even without the guacamole. Crispy fried perfection.
For the rest of our meal, we ordered two tacos and two sides. We tested the carne taco – guajillo rubbed beef with avocado tomatillo on top – and the pescado estilo bajo – fried cod and napa cabbage slaw topped with chipotle mayo and queso blanco. We chose the side salad of chopped lettuce, tomato, purple onion, and toasted pepitas and the veggie side of the day – roasted rainbow carrots with cilantro and radishes, so sweet and savory at the same time.
Our food was tasty and definitely satisfied our taco cravings! But we’ll admit, we did have some major food envy when we saw a big plate of nachos pass our table. We’ll definitely be back again soon to try more of what their menu has to offer!
