Today I wanted to introduce you to probably my all time favorite Taco Shop that took me 35 years to find. Growing up in Escondido there was a plethora of taco shop options. I had my go to spots for different occasions and depending on what I was craving I had different spots (those specifics for a later post).
It is kind of ironic that this place now occupies a previous taco spot that has one of my favorite breakfast burritos (they’ve since moved to another spot). It is kind of tradition that on the weekends you go to a taco shop for breakfast. This place has let me venture out of my morning bacon (all bacon – no sausage for me) breakfast burrito. This place has also ruined many other taco shop experiences because they are that good, when you have the same thing somewhere else, it just isn’t the same. I recently had this experience with a Surf n’ Turf burrito elsewhere.
What’s good at La Taqueria? It’s probably easier to start with what isn’t good……..oh wait……nothing is bad here…..nothing. I literally have not had one bad thing here yet. Only thing I could even nit pick is too many green peppers in the machaca burrito (minor detail). The adobada tacos…AMAZING….the Surf N’ Turf…..AMAZING, perfect ratio of steak to shrimp, delicious creamy chipotle sauce…..all the rest…..AMAZING. Chips are just the right crispness and fresh, accompanied with the in house freshly made salsa, you have a winning combo. The hot salsa is hot, but it is one of those hot salsa’s that has so much flavor that it accentuates the food and doesn’t over power it.
