Ya, we know, you are sick of us writing about taquerias. But with the taco documentary nearing completion, it is all we are thinking about these days. And besides, tacos are awesome. Today we tried Taqueria La Esperanza (1028 Holloway St. — next to Paschall’s) for the first time.
Awesomely, the only thing in this place is a window. Literally. Even though there was no menu, ordering was a breeze because one of the cooks spoke English fairly well.
We had lengua, asada, and pastor tacos ($1.50/ea). All were very good, definitely above average — even for an area that has many great taco options. In addition to the green salsa, they were served with a crema sauce that I haven’t seen before on tacos here. Really good.
The La Esperanza taco truck pulled up as I was leaving. I suspect this storefront is mainly used to stock the truck rather than serve customers directly. Still, I will stop by here often. I am looking forward to figuring out what else they serve.
Does anyone know where the truck parks?
