Oakland is an eclectic, vibrant, foodie paradise. And tacos are one of the quintessential Oakland dishes. From pop-up trucks to family-run restaurants, there’s a lifetime supply of delicious tacos out there to enjoy.

And what better way to enjoy than to pair with your favorite bud? Taking in Oakland’s historic streets, stunning views, and vibrant culture with an uplifting buzz and a handful of tacos sounds like the perfect Sunday to us.

So, we’ve paired some of our favorite taco spots with our favorite products. The best part? You can get all these tasty weed treats  via cannabis delivery in Alameda County. May we present our top three Oakland taco and cannabis combinations.

Tacos Oscar

Walking into Tacos Oscar feels like stepping into a little piece of Mexico. The funky shipping container is adorned with brightly colored walls and cacti at every turn. This is actually Tacos Oscar’s second home—it used to be a popular pop-up that appeared all over the city.

Choose from traditional options like the Pork Chile Verde, or try something new like the Charred Brócoli. Everything on the menu is gluten-free (unless stated), and there are tasty options for vegans too.

Our Perfect Pairing: Bloom Farms Vapes

We’d recommend pairing with a vape pen from Bloom Farms. Discrete and easy to use, vape pens are perfect for when you’re out and about in the city. Bloom Farms offer a range of popular strains like Sour Diesel and Wedding Cake in different carts to suit you.

Tacos Mi Rancho

Fruitvale is the true home of tacos in Oakland. Over half the population is Hispanic, and this neighborhood was a center for the Chicano movement in the ‘60s and ‘70s. So, it’s no surprise that there are endless creative and delicious taco spots to be found.

Tacos Mi Rancho is the perfect spot to pair your weed with tacos. Nestled on the edge of Lake Merrit, it’s got probably the best view of any taco truck in Oakland! Add in an uplifting high, and you’ve got a great evening with friends.

Our Perfect Pairing: Absolute Xtracts Hi-Fi Hops

Grab a bottle of Absolute Xtracts Hi-Fi Hops and wash down your tacos with an alternative to a beer. Hi-Fi Hops hits the spot on a hot day and goes perfectly with a plate full of tacos. Each bottle of Hi-Fi Hops has about 10mg of THC for a manageable, sociable buzz.

La Guerrera’s Kitchen

Another must-visit Fruitvale spot is La Guerrera’s Kitchen. This awesome spot is run by a mother–daughter team from Guerrero on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. They started out selling in markets in their hometown. Now, thanks to support from La Cocina, they have their own store so more people than ever can enjoy their delicious food.

Their barbacoa taco is a classic, but they are really known for their tamales. Don't go leave without an order. Grab takeout and take a wander through the streets of Fruitvale while you enjoy.

Our Perfect Pairing: Kiva Gummies

Our choice to pair with La Guerrera’s is a Kiva gummy. Their delicious flavors, like pineapple habanero and watermelon lemonade, go perfectly with the fragrant Mexican aromas. And it’s easy to pop a couple in your pocket before you head out the door, so you can enjoy a lift whenever you want.
