As a nod to the creators that brought tacos into everyone’s lives, Marination and Super Six will host a fundraiser for the Northwest Immigration Rights Project on National Taco Day! Marination Ma Kai’s kitchen manager Jonathan Rivera created the "Kokua Taco" (Kalua pork, homemade avocado salsa topped with pineapple pico and cotija cheese) which will be served at all three Marination locations as well as Super Six. All Kokua Taco proceeds will go to the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project. The organization’s mission to help people on their path to citizenship is close to our hearts, and we want to support their much needed work.
