Taco Bamba is bringing its traditional tacos and some items with a local twist to Herndon next week.

The fast-casual taqueria will open its ninth location on April 4 at the Village Center at Dulles Shopping Plaza (2445 Centreville Road).

The business is led by chef Victor Albisu. The Herndon restaurant will have some food described as “original to the location.” That includes an Afghan item — a beef koobideh and garlic yogurt yogurt in a flour tortilla — and an item for fried chicken lovers.

“We get a constant drumbeat of requests to bring Taco Bamba to specific neighborhoods, cities, and even countries, but the most vocal and most frequent of all those requests have come from our fans in Herndon,” Albisu said. “I can see why. It’s a true melting pot of cultures and people from different backgrounds, exactly the type of place where Taco Bamba can thrive creatively.”

The Herndon location will also include “clean-style tacos,” which are only offered at some locations. They use a cabbage cup instead of a traditional tortilla.

The restaurant will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday through Saturday.

It takes up roughly 2,850 square feet of space with 30 indoor seats.

The company is working on two additional Virginia locations in Arlington and Fair Lakes. The former is also expected to open this spring, while the latter at 12239 Fair Lakes Promenade Drive is anticipated in the fall.
