Recap: Highland Park Tacos & amp; Cocktails Crawl | The Minty

Lengua Tacos at Home ~ Taco Recipe Erich Reds

Head east to Highland Park and you will find a wonderland tacos. A few weeks back, a group of 8 or so joined me on a jaunt down York Boulevard for tacos and cocktails. We started at Tacos La Estrella, a much loved taco truck about York and Avenue 53. I remembered years ago loving their language so that was my first taco of the night.

Taco language from La Estrella

The tongue or beef tongue was extremely tender and flavorful. When it was handed over to me, the smells made me think with the onion and cilantro but it's wonderfully Latin.

On the same block is El Pique which is parked in the corner in front of the carwash. I had debated if I was going to get the same taco at every spot or try something different. I ended up getting tongue again.

The tortillas were noticeably better. They were puffier and seemed fresher. We wondered if they were handmade.

The language was not as good as it was. I would return later for more tacos.

For years I've always wanted to try Huaraches Azteca. Known for "huaraches" which are extremely flat crispy oblong tortillas that seem unique to this spot. It's an actual storefront but we ate on the street to be authentic. I had to get a taco just to keep with the crawl theme but I'm glad we tried the huaraches.

The Chorizo ​​was amazing. The sausage was very flavorful and it seemed well worth the extra $ .10 cents for this taco than from the food trucks. I hardly needed salsa.

Friends got the pastor huarache which they liked.
