Tacombi is a mini chain of taco spots, and all the locations have the same pastel color scheme and backyard-party-near-a-beach atmosphere. This one in Fort Greene is on the smaller side, but it does have a great little patio off to the side, and it’s right across the street from BAM. So if you see something there, get a paloma and some tacos here afterwards. The tacos are great (even if they’re a little smaller than we’d like), and there are also other options like quesadillas and ceviche.
