09 May finickylady – queen city food + lifestyle guide
Since opening last summer, Babalu Tapas & Tacos has remained a hotspot in Historic Dilworth. East Boulevard, as we locals like to call it “Restaurant Row”, is the home to several of Charlotte’s favorite places to dine. Kid Cashew, 300 East, Thai Taste, and The Summit Room to name a few. Comfy-casual is the main theme among all of these quaint, longstanding neighborhood destinations and although Babalu does not originate from Charlotte, it has been a welcomed addition.
If you haven’t made a trip to Babalu yet, perhaps new menu items will intrigue you! They have recently launched a few new Spring menu items, revamped some favorite recipes and added two new desserts.
Keeping strong to their Latin-inspired dishes you will still see classics like the Cuban Sandwich, House-made Tacos, and Braised Chicken Tamales. By adding more contemporary plates such as Lamb Sliders, Charcuterie selections, Cayenne Chocolate Truffles and a Tres Leches Cake completes the menu with a nice finish.
Come by and enjoy their spacious patio seating at either their high tables or bright teal couches. You will see it is once again a big summer hit each time you pass by on East Boulevard. Be the person dining not driving!
