To celebrate jgolds bday, we wanted to eat street tacos. Having a toddler and a 6 month old really puts a damper on any thoughts of a taco crawl to tire shop, but i remembered this rec and since we live nearby and they appeared to have indoor non ac covered seating, Zingos it was for our two girl’s first street taco experience.
It’s def hole in the wall with the taco cart outside the restaurant grilling with mesquite briquettes. It smelled great.
Got to try a bit of everything- tripas, carne asada, al pastor. All the meats were well seasoned but the tripas was my favorite. Probably because they throw it on the griddle after grilling resulting in extra crunchy texture on outside and tender inside.
But favorite of all was the doradito, essentially a tostada Sandwich. The tortillas are grilled crispy and the same taco meats and condiments are sandwiches in between. Fantastic! Will have to come back and try all their vegetarian options (jackfruit, cactus, potato)
Our closest neighborhood taqueria used to be spanglish kitchen, but we think this is gonna be our go to from now on. Thanks for the rec!
