Armada Taqueria started operating its services to the public last year when the town was still in Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ). However, the pandemic did not stop them from making sure that Cebuanos near the area can grasp the authentic flavors of Mexican cuisine.

Derived from the Spanish word “Armada,” which means “fleet,” the restaurant was established to ensure that they serve as many Cebuanos as possible. And while “Taqueria” means a taco-based restaurant, they’ve ventured out into a broader range of Mexican street food!

The Owners

Behind the success of Armada Taqueria are the owners, Sheila del Corro and Marcu Dungog, who both have the passion for cooking. They started the brand as a hobby while having fun in a small food stall in Paseo de Amores. When the opportunity knocked on their doors, they grabbed it and opened the main branch of the restaurant in Gold Mountain Center. Together, these cousins have developed the wide menu that customers go crazy for!

We wouldn’t want to keep you waiting for the best part of Armada Taqueria which is the extensive line of Mexican street food that they have to offer. Check out below some of the items found on their menu and their recommended best-sellers to hungry customers!
