Takoba home

Here at Takoba we care about the quality of food we cook and serve to you. Growing up in Aguascalientes, a rural area in the center of Mexico, my family and I ate dishes made with fresh and local ingredients before they were simply trendy buzzwords. That was our way of life. And when we eventually relocated to Austin we brought our traditions with us. At its heart, Takoba is our way of sharing that food experience with you.

Just like la Señora Maria and Don Alberto decades ago, we cook with the freshest ingredients we can find and support some of our favorite local vendors, like Panadería Chuy and El Milagro. But sometimes nothing can top the flavors you enjoyed as a child, and for that reason we directly import chiles, beans, and herbs from Mexico. Our roots are secure in the heart of Mexico but we’ve worked tirelessly over the past 4 years with our friend and chef, Tracey Young, to bring Takoba to the east side and create a new legacy that we’d like you to be a part of. Take a look at our menus and come share a meal with us.
