there it is. the spread. my personal favorite. las cuatro milpas. DOWN IN THE BARRIO BIIIIIITCH!!! ask any chef in the downtown area wheres the best mexican food, most likely you will get a response such as this. located on cesar chavez parkway, right near the sick ass handball courts, there it is. open monday through saturday from 9-3. only. no sunday, no dinner. depending on what time you go there, there will be a line of 20-40 people waiting halfway down the block. but dont fret, its fairly quick. due to the fact that it is cafeteria style, and there not really many options to choose from. you walk in, grab a tray and 4-6 old ass mexican ladies are right there waiting to serve you beans, rice, chorizo, tamales, tacos, rolled tacos, and burritos straight from the stove tops. yo can get pork or chicken. i think theres carne, ive never gotten it though. then you grab some of the elixer of the gods, the house salsa.
here you can see my two tacos, hard shell. crispy, yet still slightly warm chewy. which is crucial for hard tacos IMO. one chicken, one porn. oops, i meant pork. topped with cotija cheese, lettuce, then you can add onions and cilantro if you so desire. i desire. obviously.
trump card. house made lard based flour tortillas? im in. whatever you order, they throw two of these bad boys in your face regardless. after ordering all my mierda i had forgotten out of sheer excitement for tacos they give you these fo FREE. not veggie friendly. sorry allison.
everything you see here, including my pepsi, which i only ordered because the Dr Pepper and the Coca Cola werent cold, came out to a mere 7.25. yes. 7.25. tacos as big as your head for 1.50 each, the SMALL chorizo bowl for 3 bucks. and the soda for 1.25. i was stuffed. and delighted. i teared up a little bit. but just so you know, there is no ambiance here. there was actually a pigeon walking around the floor by my feet (indoors) but it took off before i could get a picture. bench seatings to rub elbows with your fellow hombres and chicas calientes. la viva la RAZA, holmes.
