So I was cruising around at lunch and not hungry really... had stopped by the bank, jamba juice, and wanted to stay away from the office for my whole lunch break... and I somehow ended up at Thrift Store Row at Chapman and East Grove in Orange. So I see this lil swanky hole in the wall taqueria that isnt really visible from the road. So I do a walk by not really hungry and go hmmmm...
So I spurn it for the moment and go cruise through a the four thirft shops lined up next to each other that were open (they may be a 5th that I missed... ohhh well). Sadly I find nothing of interest and am just not feeling a lil ramen soup thing back at my desk and decide... screw it, its TACO TIME!!!!
So I stride into this joint and see a that they only have latino patrons... I am thinking this must be a good sign and decide to get a couple of tacos... standard street taco fair with the itty bitty tortillas :\ (I WANT BIGGER TORTILLAS HEHEHE) and the tacos were $1.25 ea.
So I ordered an Al Pastor, Carne Asada, and a Pollo. The meat was piled up in steam table bins (I got in there and ordered about 2pm. Overall they were average tacos and there wasnt anything special to the Al Pastor here... I did enjoy the Asada the most by far and it had some good flavor. However this place was a kewl little joint. The guy making the taco's filled the tortillas up as much as they could be. Definitely a plus. They sprinkled on the onions/cilantro as you may request. I got the sauce on the side and also bagged a couple of lemon/lime wedges to citrify my tacos a bit later.
I got take out and head back to the office for a quick 2 minute chow session, yeah they went down fast... I will be back for the asada... but the others that I had there I would rather go to taqueria mexico at glassell and katella... but the asada are definitely worth a second trip for me.
Several construction dudes pulled in while I was there as well.
PRO TIP: Get your tacos to go and head across the street to Shaffer Park to make a faux picnic under a few trees in the grass. Makes for a great relaxing lunch spot :D
