The Perfect Wedding with SOHO Taco

The perfect wedding with SOHO Taco in Temecula

Temecula Valley, a crown jewel of Southern California, boasts rolling hills adorned with lush vineyards bathed in sunshine. It was amidst this picturesque landscape that I recently had the pleasure of attending a wedding catered by SOHO Taco, a phenomenal gourmet taco experience on wheels.

The drive to the wedding itself was a visual feast. We meandered through over a dozen vineyards, their meticulously tended rows stretching towards the horizon like verdant ribbons. The wedding venue itself was unlike any I’d encountered before. Nestled amidst the vineyards, it was a private residence of grand proportions, its sprawling grounds offering a breathtaking panorama. The ceremony unfolded outdoors, bathed in the warm glow of the setting sun, painting the sky in hues of orange and pink.

Unveiling the Appetizers

As the ceremony concluded, guests mingled under the open sky, the air buzzing with celebratory chatter. It was then that the true star of the evening emerged, SOHO Taco’s exquisite spread of appetizers. Each bite was a delightful revelation, showcasing the company’s commitment to fresh, high-quality ingredients and innovative combinations.

  • Espadas de Camarones (Skewers of Marinated Shrimp & Veggies)– Succulent shrimp and colorful vegetables, perfectly grilled, offered a smoky, savory explosion of flavor.
  • Rebanada de Uva (Sweet Grapes, Roasted Chili Lime Peanuts & Goat Cheese on a Toasted Baguette)– This playful combination offered a delightful textural contrast between the sweet grapes, the tangy goat cheese, and the crunch of the toasted baguette. The hint of chili lime in the peanuts added a surprising pop of flavor.
  • Espadas de Fruta (Sweet Mango and Ripe Watermelon Spears served with Traditional Salsa de Chamoy)– A refreshing and vibrant option, the sweetness of the fruit was perfectly complemented by the tangy and mildly spicy chamoy sauce.
  • Quesadillas– A crowd-pleasing classic, these golden triangles were filled with a blend of melted cheese, offering a comforting and familiar taste.
  • Tostadita de Salmon Ahumado (Wild Caught Sockeye Salmon with Lemon Herb Cream Cheese & Pesto on a Mini Tostada Crisp)– This elegant creation showcased the richness of the salmon, balanced beautifully by the creamy texture of the herb cream cheese and the vibrant pesto. Served on a crispy tostada base, it was a delightful fusion of flavors and textures.
The Perfect Appetizers

Taco Time

As the evening progressed, the main course arrived, and the true stars of SOHO Taco’s culinary repertoire took center stage, their tacos. The selection offered something for everyone.

Carne Asada, Marinated and grilled to perfection, the steak offered a tender and flavorful bite. Pollo asado, juicy and succulent. There was also something for the vegetarians/vegans, The signature veggie taco. Grilled bell peppers, onion, portobello mushroom, and baby spinach caramelized to perfection.

The signature veggie is placed on a bed of melted pepper jack cheese and topped off with chipotle sour cream made in house.

Sides and Toppings

Spanish rice, black beans, and refried beans provided the perfect accompaniments to the tacos, offering a comforting and familiar foundation for the culinary adventure. House-made tortilla chips added a satisfying crunch, while the toppings bar overflowed with a kaleidoscope of colors and textures. Cilantro and onion brought a touch of freshness, while lime wedges offered a burst of citrusy brightness. Jack cheese added a creamy richness, and guacamole provided a cool and creamy counterpoint. Mild red tomato salsa and spicy green jalapeño salsa offered a spectrum of heat, allowing each guest to tailor their experience to their own preferences.

The Art of the Hand-Pressed Tortilla

One of the defining elements of SOHO Taco’s service was their commitment to using hand-pressed tortillas. This traditional method ensures that each tortilla is fresh, warm, and bursting with flavor. The slight variations in texture and thickness add a touch of rustic charm and a delightful chewiness that complements the fillings perfectly. The dedication to this time-honored technique elevates the humble taco into a culinary masterpiece.

The hand pressed tortillas we’re a hit at the wedding with a lot of the guests full of excitement just to try them. The tortillas we’re made right in front of everyone so they can see how fresh the tortillas are. It wasn’t your average taco catering tortillas, it was fresh and authentic.

Hand Pressed Tortillas Made on Site

SOHO Taco’s presence at the wedding transcended the realm of mere catering, it became an integral part of the celebration itself. The scenic drive through the vineyards, the breathtaking sunset view, and the laughter shared amongst loved ones all contributed to an unforgettable experience. The appetizers tantalized the taste buds with their vibrant flavors, the tacos offered a symphony of textures and tastes, and the sides and toppings allowed for endless customization, catering to every individual’s preferences. But the subtle yet significant detail of the hand-pressed tortillas resonated deeply. It served as a tangible reminder of the heart and soul poured into each dish, a testament to the importance of tradition and the dedication to quality.

This was not just a meal, it was a celebration of love, of the union of two lives embarking on a new chapter. It was a celebration of community, of the bonds forged between families and friends. And at the center of it all, SOHO Taco’s culinary artistry provided the perfect accompaniment, weaving a tapestry of flavor and delight that will forever be etched in the memories of those who were fortunate enough to be present. As the last embers of the sunset faded into the night sky, and the dancing commenced under the starlit California sky, one thing was certain, this was a celebration that would be talked about for years to come, a testament to the power of good food, good company, and the enduring spirit of love.

In the end, SOHO Taco’s contribution extended far beyond the plates they filled.

It was a reminder that sometimes, the most profound moments are born from the seemingly ordinary, elevated by the dedication to quality and the genuine passion for creating something truly special.
