I have a couple more stops on my Columbia taco adventure: two more stops. One of them came recommended by a local news source, and the other came from general recommendations.
The first place I went to was La Cabaña, a restaurant purportedly Honduran and Mexican. It is not Mexican. I did not want to eat their tacos. I just. Could Not. I had some pupusas, which were amazing, and the friends – G, N and S – I went with (who I met through the CTE on campus) ordered other things. Some of them looked better than others. I would not really go back there. Like ever.
These are pupusas. They were ok.
Then, yesterday I went to Real México. I’ve been to this restaurant a couple of times. It is the most highly recommended Mexican food place. This is based on me telling people I study Mexico and like tacos, and them immediately asking if I’ve been to Real Mexico. I had three tacos: lengua, pastor and carne asada. Lengua was the best, carne asada was a second. The pastor was not good. Other people that I went with seemed to enjoy their margaritas. I was going to roller derby practice so I decided to stick to water. The parking there is a bit treacherous, especially if you arrive later than we did (5:30), so be forewarned. I think this is pretty good but I am still looking for my true taco home.
