Taqueria Vista Hermosa

Had a nice cheap lunch today at Taqueria Vista Hermosa. This place is one of several restaurants in a small food court at the Mercado La Paloma on Grand near 35th, a couple of miles south of the financial district. (In addition to several restaurants, the Mercado has a bunch of little shops selling bad art, folk art (there is some overlap between these two), and (of course) revolutionary books.) It's about a ten minute drive from Bunker Hill, and has a free parking lot and plenty of clean indoor tables, so it's not as much of an "adventure" as your average local taco truck. That said, the tortillas are handmade, and based on a first sampling, the tacos, particularly the al pastor, were delicious. Also, the refried beans were very nice. For a taqueria, the menu (available from the link below) is fairly ambitious, and I'm planning on returning to see how the rest of their offerings stack up. If you work downtown and don't mind a short drive, this place could be a nice addition to your lunch repertoire.
