Iguanas Ranas Taqueria (Middletown, CT): tasty bargain!

I stopped in for a quick bite yesterday, in need of something quick and inexpensive, yet delicious, for lunch. Tacos are $2 each--I had one chorizo (yum!) and one carnitas. They're served simply with cilantro and onions--the woman making them asked if that was OK with me--and a side of salsa--more like some sort of hot sauce in a dish, not fresh salsa with tomatoes and onions. I really enjoyed my meal and was only sorry I hadn't gone sooner. I will definitely go again soon when I have more of an appetite and try one of the tortas. It reminded me a lot of a place we ate in San Francisco's Mission district--not at all fancy, but very authentic and delicious.

Oh, and as I was also craving something sweet, I stopped in at O'Rourke's to pick up an order of their toasted soda bread with a side of homemade jam. Quite the feast altogether for $6 and change.
