Here is a rec for true asada taco lovers only. This taco is for those of you who have tried all the common recs on this Board and are still looking for something different. This is an uncommon asada taco for $1.00. So try one and if you don’t like it -- no big loss. If you do like it, well then you have found a place that you will be visiting to get your fix. First, you must not get all freaked out by the parking lot or the Hole-in-the-Wall walk-up window that this place is at the rear of a food market. This rec is about the taco only – not ambiance. I would add that it must be eaten there, no driving around with this taco. What makes this taco so good is also what makes it impossible to transport it further than the tables in front, or to your car seat, before you eat it – the sauce. More specifically, the amount of sauce and how it is applied. The corn tortilla is almost saturated with the sauce and therefore does not travel well. The sauce is a simple thin red tomato sauce with chili. At first you may not taste the chili but after two or three of these tacos you will notice it – for sure! The asada is also different and IMO when combined with the sauce it becomes one of those wonderful things in life.
