[PDX] Taqueria Reina

Nick | Aug 11, 200409:35 PM

New taqueria, a little dive just north of Tacoma on 17th in Sellwood. But it was quite good. I had three tacos with freshly made tortillas (25 cents extra -- but ask for it): carne asada, adovada, and al pastor. They had sold out of carnitas.

All three were good. They cook each to order and do a good job of keeping the meat tender while searing on a caramelly crust. The marinades for both the adovada and the al pastor were tasty. The tortillas were tender and the tacos included cilantro and cabbage.

Their salsas are acceptable, their red a slightly watery tomato and chile de arbol salsa, the green, an avocado puree.

If you eat in, they also give you free chips, which are premade and mediocre. But chips aren't something I expect from a taqueria and it's a real bonus when they're the quality of La Iguana Feliz's.

The menu included burritos, tortas, tamales, and enchiladas. There are several specials, too, such as three tacos, beans, and rice for $5. They also have eggs and chorizo.
