SPEAKING OF TAQUERIAS

Reader Brendan tells me that Taqueria El Pastorcito is coming to 2009 De la Vina Street, the former Los Gallos restaurant. I’m told the place doesn’t seem to be open yet. A few months ago I spoke with the family that operated Los Gallos, as well as both Daily Grind coffee shops, and they told me that they planned to reopen at a restaurant at 2009 De la Vina.

    Drove by this morning and there was an Open sign in the window and a list of hours (it looked like) posted… I look forward to trying it out soon! Talked to someone on Friday who used to work at Los Gallos and he said this place has different owners. Will let you know how it is.

    Okay, went after work that day and was glad to see that around 5:30 there was a handful of customers, eating in and taking food to go, as I did. I got 4 tacos ($1.75 each)–2 al pastor, 1 each asada and pollo. The tortillas, according to them, are “hand pressed daily” which I assume means made onsite. They are fresh enough, but thin, and each taco is made with only 1 instead of 2 as so many places do with street-style tacos. They were okay, not outstanding, and four made a hearty snack or very light meal. Adding on $2.50 for a large jamaica to drink came to about $11.25 with tax and a buck for tip. On the plus side, they use white meat chicken, and have kept the salsa bar from Los Gallos days. I will go back to try some other things… burritos, quesadillas, sopes, queso fundido.

    Work party ordered food to go and the general verdict was that the different meats (asada, pastor, & lengua) were flavorless, the salsa helped but we won’t go back again, too bad we were excited to have a taqueria in the neighborhood.
