places worth going Taco Mamacita on the North Shore
***warning: this post includes some taco snobbery***
After living in Austin, when we think tacos we wax nostalgic about those floppy, juice-running-down-your-arm, slow cooked, taco truck tacos. Oooh they are delicious. That is not what you are getting at Taco Mamacita, so just stop it! Get those messy tacos outta your head right now! Because Taco Mamacita is an entirely different kind of delicious.
They specialize in funky-fusion tacos so the more creative your thinking, the more Mamacita excels. Just embrace the fact that they put cucumber, lamb and feta cheese in your taco. Because cucumber, lamb and feta cheese are delicious.
And hey, look at that! A vegan menu for Megan!
And hey, look at that! Half price sangria on Sunday!
Also, here’s a tip… if you like spicy (which we do!) ask the server to ask the cook to whip up a super spicy salsa to add to your tacos because otherwise if you say, Can you make it spicy? they will assume you want Sriracha. And though we love Sriracha, Sriracha does not make sweat bead on our forehead quite like the good pepper-loaded salsa that comes out of their kitchen.
And since we’re talking Tex-Mex tacos, does anyone know of a place in Chattanooga that comes close to those classic taco truck tacos that we miss so much?
