Having moved back to St. Louis after a 6 year stint in Texas, I have been yearing for some good Mexican food. I tried Mi Lupita (Fenton-buddy's favorite eating/watering hole), Casa (my sisters favorite), Haciandia (not my choosing) and Qudoba (hey it must be like Freebirds, right?). Ho hum...
Then I was reading thr River Front Times Best of 2005, and for tacos, it listed Tawueria El Branco. What the heck, I thought.
Wow. It met what I think is good Mexican food in St. Louis. To start, the red and green salsas were how I liked them. Spicy and pureed. Tasting more of chilis than tomatos. The tomatillo salsa was based on sour cream and heavenly.
Per the artice, I got two tacos, one Taco al Pastor, which had marinated pork with raw onions and fresh cilantro. Very spicy and good. I also had a Taco de carne asada, which was steak. That was good too. Both served on two layers of corn tortillas.
One of the other patrons was dining on "seafood soup" which looked good. Might have to try that when I return.
Like an article in the Post Dispatch, I believe one of the waitresses spoke little English, since the other translated for me. I received good service while there. The place was a little warm, but it was 95 outside.
Oh to find good Mexican in St. Louis!
