Taco Bamba, the quirky, modern taco shop from chef Victor Albisu, will open a fifth location in Fairfax’s University Mall next Thursday, Dec. 6.

The usual suspects of chicken tinga, carne asada and al pastor will be on the Mexican-inspired menu, as will a slate of newfangled options, like the Robinson Ramen with noodles, shoyu carnitas, salsa machado, canned corn and togarashi tartar. Also new: Savage Sub-Mariner with shrimp, calamari and a citrus arbol romesco; Ol’ Mick Nugget with crispy chicken thighs and a “hot sweet ‘n’ sour bbq mustard;” Mr. Chow filled with General Tso’s cauliflower; and Fairfax 4-Way showcasing blistered brussels sprouts and granola.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it will also have beers and margaritas on draft. And everyone who’s there on opening day is entered to win one of 100 cards offering one free taco each week for a year. // Taco Bamba: 10629 Braddock Road, Fairfax
