Screaming Goat Taqueria is owned by Executive Chef Malin Parker who started cooking professionally when he was 15. After high school, he attended The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York where he graduated in 1990. Moving to Sarasota in 1999 Malin has been lucky enough to be The Executive Chef for Fred's Restaurant, Cru Bistro & Wine Bar, Morton's Gourmet Market as well as Chef Instructor for Viking Culinary Center.
There are no hard-shell tacos at Screaming Goat Taqueria and everything made from scratch, from the tortillas (corn or flour) to the six to eight different salsas populating the salsa bar. “There’s not one pre-made product that I buy,” says Malin. "I take great pride in making my food from scratch. I care about what goes into the food that I serve, which is why I source most of my ingredients from local farms." He even makes his own queso fresco, using ingredients from Dakin Dairy. Purist foodies can opt for the traditional route—meat, onions and cilantro—or go wild with whatever crazy offerings Parker comes up with, including vegan options like the roasted sweet potato, green lentil and quinoa taco. Meats include the expected beef and pork, but also exciting (but perhaps not surprising) options like goat barbacoa and homemade chorizo.
And while tacos may be Malin’s “number one comfort food,” Screaming Goat Taqueria will offer more than just classic street food, also stretching back in time for some ancient recipes from the Yucatán, such as the Cochinita Pibil—a slow-roasted pork wrapped in banana leaves with traditional spices and citrus juices.
