When you think of tacos, you might think of the typical tortilla dish filled with a mixture of meat and vegetables, but Taco Fanatico in Nakameguro, Tokyo has something different in mind this spring.

The taco specialty restaurant serves all sorts of Mexican dishes to complement their selection of tacos. This March, however, they’re having a cherry blossom-flavored dessert taco as well, which is a sweet addition to the mostly spicy and savory dishes on their menu.

The sakura taco, as it’s called, has an exterior made out of beetroot-colored corn tortilla wrapped in a salted cherry leaf. The filling is a combination of sweet and salty, with matcha cream, sweet red bean paste and salted cherry blossom flowers.

Priced at 480 yen each, this dessert taco will only be available from March 1st to mid-April 2020, so if you want to try a different type of dessert inspired by Japan’s iconic pink flowers, this is the perfect season to do so.
