Cinco De Mayo

Authentic style tacos are a little different from what Taco Bell would have us believe.  I still have a fondness for the spicy beef tacos I had growing up as a kid, and I have somehow managed to inherit my mothers keen ability in burning taco shells under the broiler.

Cinco de Mayo (I went to the one on Eastern Avenue next to Tortilleria Sinoloa) has authentic style tacos and tons of other menu choices.  And starts everyone with some chips and this green stuff.  The chips are crispy and crunchy with a nice salty fry.  The green stuff – I dunno what that is – there isn’t much flavor, but a thickish consistency.  I say skip it.

Now to the tacos – I found the tortillas perfectly golden, adding a nice touch.  We went with three tacos:  fish, barbacoa and carnitas; they were out of the lengua or we would have tried that too…  The meat fillings were a little better on this side, than next door.  The barbacoa was tender with a slight bbq char flavor.   I liked the carnitas, the pork was also tender, but not oily.  The fish was a little dry the day I was there, but overall – this is a go to place – all this food for $13.
