Tacubaya report

Amy G | Jun 10, 2005 04:15 PM

Been spending lots of time in Berkeley lately due to a sick pet and a specialist treating my cat on that side of the bridge. The downside besides the large vet bills has become my addiction to Tacubaya. I am not an expert on Mexican cuisine and it probably is not the most authentic, but I just love the clean bright flavors and the intense corn flavor on the masa. I have enjoyed the corn quesadillas with asparagus with a guajillo sauce, the chiles rellenos, and the sopes above all. if you get the rellenos, get a side of the refried beans fried in chorizo fat--heaven. The tacos are not their strong point in my opinion. I have also enjoyed their breakfast items, specially the eggs with chorizo and the eggs with half green and half red salsa. Don't bother with the chilaquiles. Overall, a fast, fresh, and relaxing meal while sitting outside next to Cafe Rouge. It is not the cheapest, but the chiles rellenos alone make it worth while.
