What's your favorite holiday? Mine is Taco Tuesday, which, fortunately for me, comes every week!
Seriously though, I don't really eat tacos every week, though my Instagram feed
might say differently. We do eat tacos more often now than we used to, because my Dad lives near the R & R Taqueria in Perry Hall. Every other month or so we all go out for a taco blowout.
We used to go to Fiesta Mexicana. They serve amazing Mexican street food, but I have found their tacos to be lacking...in tenderness. R & R's tacos are always tender, and they come in myriad varieties. They have chicken and beef, but also buche (pig stomach), lengua (tongue), cabeza (calf head), and tripe (cow stomach). Their carnitas (pork shoulder) is fantastic, and I enjoy the chorizo, too. Dad's a fan of the super spicy cochinita pibil and chicken tinga fillings.
In addition to a plate or two of tacos, we get other stuff. The carne en pasilla (grilled steak in a spicy pasilla chile sauce) is Mr Minx's favorite. It comes with beans, rice, queso fresco, pico de gallo, and corn tortillas. We've also tried the paradilla--steak, chicken, and chorizo--and chile relleno platters.
I love their tamales, which are huge, fluffy, and filled with chicken. Also super cheap. I've tried them with both mole and salsa roja, and I think I prefer the rich, sweet, chocolatey mole.
Among other deliciousness is the torta, a Mexican style sandwich layered with avocado, refried beans, jalapenos, and melted cheese. It's huge, so made for sharing. I like my tortas with a breaded beef cutlet, which happens to be one of the things that Fiesta Mexicana does better. Still, it's a great sandwich.
Other items we've enjoyed at R & R but are not pictured: sopes; huaraches; quesadillas; flautas; and alhambres, We've yet to try anything with seafood in it, enchiladas, fajitas, or burritos. But there is always a next time.
