Grab scrumptious, global street food at Tau Poco.

By Jan Walsh

Photography by Beau Gustafson


Tau Poco is Chris Dupont’s newest eatery. Located at 121 20th Street North, Tau Poco is primarily a small, lunch, take-out spot that serves global street food. True to its name, Tau Poco means tiny vessel in Vietnamese and Spanish. But it also has a few tables and approximately 20 seats. Dupont is also the executive chef and owner of Café Dupont, which is located on the same block as Tau Poco.

Order from the counter and a menu painted on the wall. First select one vessel among the options of cachapa, msemen, lettuce, or pork bun. Next pick a protein: steak, chicken, pork, sausage, or ceviche. Add a sauce or two: salsa borracho, chimichurri, bo ssam, spiracha aoli, or ginger scallion. And choose a side of kimchi, couscous, or plantains. Select a drink. Then grab your bag and go.

Today I select a divine Moroccan Style Chicken, cooked with olives between the skin and breast meat, which I place inside plump, warm and wonderful pork buns and top with flavorful chimichurri, sriracha aoli sauces. And I piled the tasty side of kimchi on top. Layers of colorful flavor, textures, heat and spices excite my palate with each bite of this awesome lunch.
