Mission Taco Joint and Sugarfire Smoke House have joined forces for a good cause. Guests at both The Loop and Soulard locations can now enjoy the ‘Pig on a Mission’ taco, on special for the month of March. This new collaborative taco features chile-rubbed Sugarfire smoked pork topped with an ancho agave glaze, wood-fire grilled pineapple pico de gallo, habanero lime slaw and hibiscus pickled onions. Not only do you get a great tasting taco but each one purchased will be supporting Strange Cares, a charity nonprofit by Strange Donuts that aims to help Big Brothers Big Sisters, Girls on the Run and the Children’s Heart Foundation. According to a video posted by the Strange Donuts team, the idea got its roots after a conversation between Mission Taco’s Jason Tilford and Sugarfire’s Mike Johnson. 6235 Delmar Blvd., The Loop, 314.932.5430; 908 Lafayette Ave., Soulard, 314.858.8226
