As someone who cut her teeth back in the day on fish tacos at the original Green Burrito (not the Carl's Jr version which is a far cry from how Green Burrito was), moving north of Southern California found me craving good fish tacos. Which are not easy to find up here. After a few months I was feeling very frustrated at the dried out flour tortilla offerings. May I will do a post on those some day.
But perseverance paid off. Not only did I find good fish tacos like the ones from down south but a place that solidly reminds me of the good Mexican eateries there. Since I am making myself blog a bit and it's almost Cinco de Mayo, let me present to you Taco del Sol.
A brightly painted building greets you.
With colorful windows.
A perplexing set of menus inside. But don't worry. Just ask and they probably have what Mexican fast food dish you want.
My first time out I went with chips with guacamole and two fish tacos. I think I was just feeling out the place after months of not finding really good fish tacos.
The guacamole was not the slimy green sauce but real guacamole. Plus good salsa fresca and decent looking limes. I'm feeling good about this.
Fish tacos on corn tortillas. With cilantro and onion, I'm doing even better.
Fast forward a few months and B visiting from down below. Of course he wants to try the place out. He orders his favorite, a wet chicken burrito. Which he declared one of the best he has ever had.
He also ate taquitos. Guess he wanted to really experience their food?
I went with a three taco plate. Ended up being a lot of food for me but was so good.
Another visit and this time a cheese quesadilla. Good but another example how my eyes are bigger than my stomach.
Because I also ordered two fish tacos with it. Still good. They are consistent with the food preparation. Which most diners like.
It's good I don't live right by Taco del Sol because I would eat here a lot more. Once again the three taco plate. The sauces in the bottles are tasty too. I need to see if they have a two taco plate. And order guacamole with it. Sounds like a reasonable excuse to stop in again.
Because this is as good as I have had in Southern California and makes me happy.
Taco del Sol is located at 13165 SW Pacific Hwy, Tigard, OR. Their website is here.
