Three tostaditas with fresh fish ceviche and avocado. Happy hour $4
Frida’s Mexican Grill, Napa CA
These definitely weren’t the best ceviche I’ve ever had, but I will say that they were a steal at only four bucks. The fish was a bit on the grainy side and it was overall on the acidic side. Thank goodness for the avocado slice that helped mellow it out.
Corn tortilla with goat, salsa, onion and cilantro. Served with pickled vegetables. Each $1.75
El Norteno Taco Truck, San Francisco CA
Not many taco trucks serve goat tacos. El Norteno doesn’t serve it every day and they often run out when they do. These tacos were really tasty and the salsa was nice and spicy. Goat has a pretty bold flavor so the salsa and pickled vegetables were great in neutralizing it a bit. For less than two bucks each, these delicious tacos are a must-eat (especially if you have jury duty at the court house across the street)!

Toasted flour tortilla filled with ground beef and melted mozzarella cheese. Drizzled with garlic mayo and smoky barbeque sauce. 240 PHP
Holy Cow!, Manila PHILIPPINES
I was excited for this quesadilla, but when it came out there was way too much sauce on top. I certainly like saucy things, but I don’t know if I really wanted that much mayonnaise on my quesadilla. Some of the right flavors were there, but I think the tortillas were old. They tasted a bit musty like it was about to mold.

Chicken enchilada and tamale served with Spanish rice, refried beans, and salad. $12.45
Casa Azteca, Milpitas CA
I usually get the enchilada/chile relleno combination option when it comes to Mexican combos, but for some reason I was craving a tamale. Maybe masa seemed a bit healthier than a deep fried chile stuffed with cheese, but I’m pretty sure they’re both pretty unhealthy overall, lol! Regardless, this was yummy and it hit the spot.
Salad. Not the prettiness salad I’ve had, but I do appreciate that they threw in some beets.
Two corn tortillas filled with beef, covered with a mild red chile sauce and cheese. Topped with guacamole and sour cream. Served with Spanish rice, refried beans, and tortilla soup. $12.95
Casa Azteca, Milpitas CA
This was a great value for only thirteen bucks and everything was pretty good, but all the textures on the enchilada plate were soft. I didn’t mind too much but I wish they would have thrown in something crunchy to balance things out. I think that’s why other places thrown in a small pile of that cheap iceberg lettuce “salad”. You all know what I’m talking about. The tortilla soup was also on the salty side.
6″ corn tortilla, onions, lettuce and cilantro cream sauce. $3
Senor Sisig, SF Street Food Festival 2013, San Francisco CA
Ugh! I was really excited to try the sisig taco because I’ve read quite a bit about this food truck. I was sadly disappointed because the pork had an odd flavor and it was WAY too tart. I love sisig, but this didn’t do it for me. Perhaps their burritos are better, but then again it’s the same sisig filling inside. 😦

A New Mexican classic made with housemade corn tortillas, cheese, ground beef, smothered in Christmas sauce (red and green chile sauce), topped with crema, pinto beans, rice and side salad. $13
Chile Pies, San Francisco CA
Last time I was at Chile Pies, I was a little disappointed but this enchilada was fantastic. The ingredients were great and the different chile sauces they used were delicious! It’s a good amount of food so you won’t leave hungry.
