This is my first post. I've been lurking for a while and taking advantage of the great taste and finds of the other Chowhounds. I have never posted myself before because you guys can be a bit intimidating for a newbie with all that gastro-knowledge and debate. But I feel that it is time that I support the group so here goes…
On a chowhound recommendation, my husband and I visited Tacos De Mexico on Saticoy and Tampa in Reseda. If you're looking for ANY atmosphere, keep on driving because you are not going to find it here. It was definitely one of those places I would never visit without a recommendation.
The food was fantastic and at $1.25 per taco, who can argue? First, the condiments bar is extensive with those great charred jalapeño peppers that I love, pickled carrots and other assorted pickled veggies and several types of salsa.
The chicken, caritas and carne asada tacos were all delicious and came equipped with the onion/cilantro mixture. We also ordered the pastor tacos and regret to say that that was a disappointing but you may want to take that with a grain of salt as I am generally not the biggest pastor fan. The chili relleno was good but both my husband and I agreed that it did not rise to the "order it again" status.
The big surprise was the ceviche tostada. My husband rolled his eyes at me when I ordered it, thinking that this was not the place to order seafood. Well, he rolled those eyes right back and picked up a fork in a hurry once he tasted it. The ceviche was excellent; all shrimp and just the right amount of lemon juice, onion and cilantro and at $3.50 a shot it won’t break the bank.
This is now one of our favorite lunch spots.
