Cuernavaca Taqueria, Ventura

Snackish | Apr 5, 2008 10:32 PM

On the Avenue in Ventura next to Airway Glass (which has a cool neon sign), there is a little taqueria called Cuervavaca. Order at the counter - tacos, tortas, sopes, gorditas, menudo on weekends, licuados, aguas frescas.

My friend and I went for a bite - I got quesadillas de champignones and she got menudo. Both were delicious. The quesadillas were on big thin corn tortillas with sauteed mushrooms, herbs, queso and sauteed greens. Tasty. I tasted both red and green salsas from the bar and both were good.

She liked her menudo, which was super tripey and without hominy. She said she would have liked at least a little hominy, but otherwise it was great.

The horchata was really nice - fresh homemade and full of spices. I didn't ask her about her jamaica.

Total was $17.

They have nice flatscreen TV with futbol on. The place was jumping on a Saturday night and is usually pretty busy.

It gets my two thumbs up.
