El Chinaco - Costa Mesa - Awesome Tacos!!!

torta basilica | Mar 22, 2006 04:16 PM

I drive by all the time & had never noticed this place on 19th Street (560 W 19th - closer to the Harbor Blvd. end). Mexican & El Salvadorean food owned by a lovely El Salvadorean woman. All I had were the tacos & was blown away - 2 tacos for $2.65 (might have been $2.85) with choice of carnitas, carne asada, chicken, & a bunch of other things. I picked the 1st two & received a plate overflowing with these 2 huge tacos, double tortillas, some cabbage, crema, guacamole & I believe some crumbled cheese. Could not begin to finish both, but they were incredibly delicious, packed with carnitas & steak & just an incredible deal. Others had empanadas, tamals, but we were all so busy happily scarfing down what we ordered, didn't have a chance to try anyone else's! Nice escabeche & salsa bar, too.
