Yo Rita - Taco Heaven

Panini Guy | Jul 10, 2009 09:07 PM

Went in with a couple of friend on Fri night. Sat at the bar for about 7 minutes before being seated. Amazed there wasn't an hour wait and a line around the corner Wouldn't be surprised if the wait was that long by next week as the press is coming out on what Sousa's done there.

I had two tacos: bbq eel in chipotle and tongue with beef marrow. Both $5. Had them in flour tortilla (corn is an option, but I felt the flour would let the ingredients stand out more). Had an Arrogant Bastard to imbibe with (amazingly only $4.75 for a pint). One companion also had the tongue/marrow as well as a salmon/avocado/huitlacoche combination, other had braised pork with apple. Most expensive dish is the soft shell crab taco at $7.

All were incredible and surprisingly filling. Dining on Sousa-food and filling up for $10 is almost incomprehensible. Left there thinking that a $0.99 chain taco is way overpriced.

The menu is online, although the specials (e.g. tongue/marrow) aren't online yet. There are 14 different tacos on the menu and I expect to eat them all before end of summer. Also some apps, but it's the tacos that are the star here.

Wouldn't wait too long to try Yo Rita out as it's going to get very very busy shortly.
