As I walked out of Fell’s Point and into more of a not-so-tourist-friendly neighborhood, my apprehensions around ordering tacos in an east coast city began to dissipate. Let’s face it, Baltimore isn’t really known for it’s Mexican food. If there was any chance for this place it be good, it was going to need to be located in an ever so slightly shady neighborhood. All great taco stands are.
Walking through the door, I was really impressed. The dining area was simple, but it clean, and the kitchen was in open view. They were busy making their own tortillas. A really good sign.
I ordered one steak, one chicken and one pork. All three were great, but the pork was the best. A place like this is all about fresh tortillas and good meat. You don’t need a bunch of toppings when you get the basics right. Just some onion, cilantro and jalepeno. Add a bit of the bright orange hot sauce if you really want to kick it up a notch.
Best of all, this meal was really affordable. If you’re ever looking for an awesome lunch in Baltimore, I highly recommend this place.Save to foursquare
