A Taqueria Find in Shelton WA

Janer | Mar 16, 2006 08:02 AM

If your spring travels take you through Shelton, WA, don't miss a downtown taqueria at 116 Cota St., Taqueria Las Palmas. We wandered in there a year ago and now keep finding reasons to go to sleepy Shelton (no small feat) at least once every few months. You can dine in or order take out. The menu is limited to tacos, burritos, and tortas, with meat choices of asada, adobada, tounge, cheek, tripe, pollo, or carnitas. Sopes and menudo also appear. I am especially fond of the carnitas tacos.

Take a seat in the simple dining room, check out the menu posted on the wall, and enjoy. This is a paper plate joint. Don't expect a basket of chips, and don't expect to hear a lot of English spoken. It's a gem of a lunch stop if you are in the mood for a plateful of authentic tacos ($1.25 each, a bit extra for carnitas) and a cold beer or Jarritos soda. There is also a tortilla factory about a block away.
