Birmingham - Taqueria Valencia on Lorna Rd

Dax | Oct 21, 2007 02:50 PM

I tried to go get a late lunch at Silver Coin but it closes between 3 and 5:30. In that same strip mall is Taste of Thailand and Taqueria Valencia, among other places. I noticed chorizo, carnitas, al pastor, barbacoa, lengua and other types of meat and preparations so I gave it a try. Complimentary chips and salsa were ok, kind of bland. Chorizo taco was good with the seared chorizo and a little pico de gallo, plus a squeeze of lime and some of the salsa verde which the waitress brought out with the taco. Only one tortilla, which I find unsual, but a delicious taco nonetheless at $1.75. Torta al pastor was near perfect with the pressed bread, cheese, beans, fresh slice of avacado and slices of pickled jalapenos, plus tomatoes and lettuce. I squired both the salsa verde and some of the homemade red sauce from the bottles provided. Man I love tortas when properly prepared. Total with a coke was like $9. I'll definitely return soon.
