Mr. Taco

Tacos Carnitas with Cilantro & Onion with just a spritz of juice from a fresh lime. Does it get any better than this? Well, food wise...NO - these were the most delicious tacos I have ever eaten and believe me, I have eaten some pretty fantastic tacos.

Mr. Taco is at 25th and Arkansas and is just this side of shady. They grill their meat on a "well seasoned" grill just out back of the building. There is no place to eat inside and if you get more than 3 people in the ordering area, a major case of claustrophobia sets in. They do have several concrete tables and plastic chairs outside, and we've eaten out there before, but today was too chilly.

So, we ate in the car and all the while, Foxy kept trying to jump in the front seat to eat our food. The only problem now is how to get the cilantro smell out of my car!

Doug had Carnitas too, but he got his in burrito form. I told him he must have been channeling Adam Richman from Man vs. Food because that was one bulging burrito! Carnitas, beans, rice, lettuce, tomato, cheese, sour cream, onion, cilantro and some of the hottest sauce to ever burn his lips. He didn't get hungry again for EIGHT HOURS, so that should tell you something, if you know Doug!

They also sell carnitas by the pound on weekends.

Along with carnitas, they have carne asada, pollo, chiccarones (not on the printed menu) and al pastor for tacos, burritos and tostadas.

Totally delicious and I can't wait for our next trip back to Mr. Taco.

Yummy Mexican Food Last Night

We went to our current favorite spot - 21st Street Burgers in Wichita. It's on 21st, between Broadway and Arkansas. It's a Mexican place, really. But they do serve burgers and fries.

I forgot to take pictures of our food, but plan to do that in the future.

Doug had the most delicious Mexican Fajitas - with carne asada, tomatoes, onions and jalapenos. Served with Rice, Beans, Corn Tortillas. On a scale of 1 to 10, he said they were a 10 PLUS!

Me - One Taco Al Pastor and One Chicken Gordita. Since I can't eat lettuce, I got them both with cilantro and onions. The taco was great, the chicken so-so. I like my gorditas with a little bit of refried beans and sour cream, but this one was just chicken, cilantro and onions. Kind of bland. Put some hot sauce on it and that perked it up considerably!

We should live in Mexico. To our family, there is nothing better than authentic Mexican Food.

I don't even bother to try to make it at home, there is NO WAY I could do it as well as any of the gazillion places in Wichita that make real Mexican Food.

Suadero Huaraches, Milanesa Torta, Charro Beans with Steak, Chorizo con Huevos, Alhambre Tacos.

Pictures and restaurant reviews coming soon!
