La Taqueria


in Downtown & West End

The original cheery hole-in-the-wall taco shop that inspired a highly successful local mini-chain, the once eye-popping paintwork here has been replaced by classy dark tones. But the warm welcome and authentic food remains. Go for an adventurous array of soft tacos, choosing from fillings such as grilled fish, pork cheeks and house-marinated beef, all made with top-notch, locally sourced ingredients.

Vegetarians also have lots of tasty choices and there are burritos, nachos and quesadillas too. Save room for a glass of cinnamon-flavored horchata (a milkshake-style traditional beverage).
