Chela's Taqueria- oh yeah!

Oh my word, we had some amazing food at Chela's Taqueria in Redwood City today. On a friends enthusiastic recc. we ordered the Goat Soup along with Lengua, Al Pastor, Chicken, and Carne Asada tacos. To begin with, the soup was outstanding and came with 6 homemade tortillas that were the best I've had. Each order comes with this large garnish tray of three salsas (verde, seemingly some salsa arbol, and what appeared to be a mole of sorts), diced onion, cilantro and lime. The tacos were simple but great. The asada was a bit dry, but the lengua was moist and tender and the pastor was richly spiced. When combined with the garnish, they came to life. The soup stole the show though. I was scooping up tender bits of meat from it and making tacos with the tortillas (I asked for 12 more togo and she made them to order). All in all, this place is amazing. It's about 3 blocks south of broadway on El Camino. Check it out.
