Funky Taco to replace downtown Mongolian Grill

UPDATE JUNE 16: Funky Taco has submitted a design renewal application with the City of Boise to take over this space and remodel. In addition to the details below, The Funky Taco plans to add access to the existing unused basement and add a mezzanine level in the space.

ORIGINAL STORY – MARCH 21, 2017:  Boise foodtruck The Funky Taco is exciting fans with a rendering of a bricks and mortar location in downtown Boise at the corner of 8th and Bannock.

No permit filings have landed at Boise City Hall yet, but the rendering shows a revamp of the current Mongolian Grill and Bar space next to Dawson Taylor on the corner.  Upgraded signage, seating and facade are in the plan.

The pic was posted to social media with a Strugill Simpson lyric:

“Shatter illusions that hold your spirit down
Open up your heart and you’ll find love all around

Oh I’m telling you, It’s all a dream……. It’s all a dream” 

The owners also posted they “hope to make you proud, Downtown Boise.”

The current foodtruck incarnation offers “eclectic tacos and other funky fare with influences from India, Asia, Mexico, and Southern Americana with a heavy influence on Vegetarian and Vegan fare with select Omnivore options as well.”

No timeline for opening – the building revamp would likely have to go through Boise’s Design Review process.
