Galaxy Taco To Open In La Jolla Shores On July 13 | Reimagined Mexican From The Owners Of George's At The Cove

July 6, 2015

From the owners of George's at the Cove, Galaxy Taco will bring reinvented Mexican fare and a curated bar menu highlighted by rare tequila and mezcal to La Jolla Shores starting on Monday, July 13 at 11am. Executive chef and partner Trey Foshee, chef de cuisine Christine Rivera and co-owner George Hauer are ready to introduce their fresh-made, Baja-inspired flavors to San Diego, so check out the menu and start salivating!

Galaxy Tacos is a 4,200 square foot, casual eatery that takes up about half of the former La Jolla Shores Market space in the Kellogg Building at 2259 Avenida de la Playa. The restaurant was designed by Mark Steele with the assistance of Trey Foshee and several artists. Expect Mexican and masa inspired murals, tables made from teak and several dining areas featuring eclectic colors and designs.

The menu, created by Foshee and Rivera, will, of course, consist of a wide variety of gourmet tacos made with house-made tortillas, as well as shareable plate and main courses. The non-GMO heirloom corn for the tortillas will come from Mexico and will be ground daily in-house using a $10,000-plus masa grinder, custom made for the restaurant. Highlights from the expansive taco menu ($5-6) include Baja fried fish, lamb barbacoa, potato, grilled avocado and more. Other menu standouts include birria steamed clams, wood-roasted pork shoulder and smoked and roasted yellowtail collars.

As for the bar menu, in addition to an ample selection of tequila and mezcal, there will also be Baja-sourced wines, a lengthy cocktail list and craft beers from San Diego and Mexico, including a beer brewed just for the restaurant - Galaxy Corn Lager made by Benchmark Brewing.
