About Tac N Roll

The second best taqueria NYC via Taco Showdown NYC! --- The fusion of Dominican, Korean, Jamaican, Thai, and Indian cuisine within the broader concept of tacos, rolls, and salads at Tac N Roll, which opened in January of 2016, might strike some as odd. However, once you get to know the story of Eric Wong, manager and chef, the idea behind this East Village culinary world tour becomes clearer. The son of a chef from Hong Kong who immigrated to the United States in 1983, Eric has definitely been exposed to the culinary industry from a young age. It was during his own travels, however – both on his own and as part of the Marine Corps – that exposed him to people “from all walks of life,” each with many recipes from their respective home cuisine. In the Marine Corps, “you get to share many things,” Eric said. “In our case that was recipes.” This fascination for travel and different cultural experiences is succinctly represented in the giant world map on the wall of Tac N Roll.

The son of a chef from Hong Kong who immigrated to the United States in 1983, Eric has definitely been exposed to the culinary industry from a young age. It was during his own travels, however – both on his own and as part of the Marine Corps – that exposed him to people “from all walks of life,” each with many recipes from their respective home cuisine. In the Marine Corps, “you get to share many things,” Eric said. “In our case that was recipes.” This fascination for travel and different cultural experiences is succinctly represented in the giant world map on the wall of Tac N Roll. Collecting staple dishes from twenty regions of the world, Eric eventually zeroed down on those from the Dominican Republic, Korea, Jamaica, Thailand, and India. As for the choice to put them in the form of tacos and rolls, Eric has a simple explanation: “I try to grasp the authenticity of food in a convenient way of eating.” He said that a taco “could be a quick snack or you could make a meal out of it.
