I went to Tallulah's Taqueria for take-out yesterday-- they are still in their "soft opening" phase.

I had the black bean taco, the carnitas taco and the chicken taco. I probably should have stopped at two, but in the interests of research, I persevered. I'm glad I did, because the chicken was my favorite: smoky, tender, flavorful chicken, with a fresh crunch from pickled radishes and a nice salsa verde.

The carnitas taco was pretty greasy, but not in an un-delicious way. It's just not first-date clean-shirt food. I was surprised that the black bean taco included rice, but it was tasty. In fact, it was still good the next morning, cold from the fridge-- a fate no taco deserves.

My only real critique is that there was too much filling in each taco-- they were all ungainly to eat. They are hefty for tacos-- big hungry guys could probably down three or more, but I could have been done at two.

The shop itself is gorgeous-- clean, modern, no-nonsense design. Great crisp colors (safety orange, faint pale blue) and honest materials (live edge wooden bar, galvanized steel, cement block).

The food and the interior both agree: this is a confident place that cares about quality, attention to detail, and satisfying, no-fuss excellence.

Highly recommended.
