Wapo Taco's roots go back to 1962 when their first Taqueria opened its doors in Mexico City with their pioneer charcoal grilled tacos. The famous Tacos al Carbon, which were their original creation, have now become the culinary staple of Mexico City. Their new concept was born to address the limited offering of authentic Mexican taquerias around the world.

Now Wapo Taco opens their second location at Coral Gables.

After 20-plus years of successfully operating fine dining restaurants across America, Chef Klime Kovaceski’s latest passion involves pizza - which is not as strange as it seems. In 2008, Klime was part of the creative team behind MEZ in Charlotte, North Carolina, which combined a theater, restaurant and nightclub in one complex. The need for food with mass appeal resulted in a pizza featured as one of Charlotte Magazine’s favorite dishes.Kovaceski’s next project found him delving into the delivery and takeout business. The idea of creating food that is easily accessible to everyone who lives or works in an area not only appeals to his instincts as a chef, but he also feels strongly that this is "the future of the hospitality industry."

The stylish restaurant aims to provide not just the best pizza in town (with toppings such as figs, pancetta and blue cheese; mozzarella and basil; and pesto-artichoke), but will also serve cuisine culled from chef Kovaceski’s personal recipes and prepared with his talented touch. The delivery service promises to be distinctive as well: Hot food brought to your door hot. And…
