International Ave Mexican update

Ruth Lafler | Mar 28, 2002 01:23 PM

While putting together the perfect Mexican meal (see below), I noticed that Mariscos La Costa (of taco truck fame) is about to open a permanent location on the corner of International and 36th (or 37th?). Doesn't appear to have any inside seating -- basically a walk-up counter with a large parking lot. Same seafood offerings at the same prices as the truck, plus an expanded menu of other taqueria basics (tacos, burritos, etc. with various meat fillings). I can hardly wait!

Meanwhile, I was having tinga cravings, so I stopped at La Torta Loca, ordered a huarche de tinga and suadero and chicarrones tacos, then while it was being prepared walked down to El Ojo de Agua for a strawberry agua fresca and a pineapple tamale. Topped it off with an ear of corn "with everything" from a cart, and I swear it was the best Mexican meal I've ever had -- truly hyperdelicious!
