Pink Taco -- Century City Not Bad

Bman | Jul 8, 2007 08:18 PM

Sunday with the kids and have not eaten all day. 13 year old daughter mentioned Pink Taco at the Century City Mall -- Morton kid restaurant. Got there at 3:50 and there was a line. They open at 4. Sat outside, very nice, service very good, but it was still early and not yet too crowded.

Quick verdict is that Pink Taco is better than any of the americanized mexican places in LA. Please do not compare against any of the great taco trucks or stands in east LA. Prices between 10-20 for dinners. Drinks between 7-10 and rather good.

More details. Chips and salsa. Two kinds of salsa. Respectable tomato but actually very good tomatillo with actual chunck fo tomatillo and not the guppy green stuff we seem to find everywhere.

I had the carnitas tacos. I got three very tasty tacos. Fully of meat with soft corn tortilla that were simply too small for what I got. Nice touch was the red onions marinaded in habanero chilis. Could have had a little more kick but one of my favorits.

Daughter had carnia asada tacos. Again too much meet for the tacos and with a nice cilantro topping. She had too take one of them home.

Son 11 had fish tacos that were very good. Nice fish with cabbage. He is picky about his taco and he liked these.

Wife had the turkey club salad with cumin. Very good as well.

Two margaritas on the rock no salt in the afternoon what could be better. This is not fine dining or the best authentic regional food you will find in the city. But it is good and easy.

If you friends are pushing you to an american mexican experience and they do not like to venture out of there neighborhood, try Pink Taco. I was surprised and will be back.
