Food Hussy Review: Fridas 602 - Covington, KY

I love tacos. love. Love. LOVE. 


So pretty much anytime I find out about a new taqueria - I go - pretty damn quick. And I found another...

Frida 602 is on the main corner in Mainstrasse and has been open for a couple of years. The restaurant has a unique sense of design that I'm in love with!

The colors are so vibrant - even outside - I knew I'd love it! I've heard great things about the food too so I was really excited. I was meeting a former coworker and we only get to hang out a few times a year - so I was doubly excited - TACOS AND KELLEEN! WOOHOO!

Their menu has a lot of great options and it was hard to decide. A few things we didn't pick but almost did: short rib empanada (two of my fav things in one happy pouch), brussels sprout taco and tres leches cake.

Queso with chips ($8)

We started with queso - and thank you Baby Jesus that we did. It was amazing. The best queso I've had in so long. It's thick with lots of pull to the cheese - and peppers in it - just delicious. We kept eating it and saying - oh we should stop - but no - we kept going. I probably could have eaten the whole thing on my own - which it's not like it's a shock that I would eat a pan of cheese - but it's so good.

The decor is so fun - I would love to just take all of it home! 

Oaxacan Chicken Sandwich - mezcal & lime glazed chicken on local sourdough with avocado, queso fresco, and chipotle mayo ($11)

Kelleen got the chicken sandwich and enjoyed it - after all that cheese - she only ate half but hey - that just means leftovers!

Al Pastor Taco - spit roasted pork, al pastor sauce & pineapple ($4)
Gobernador - seared chile shrimp, bacon, shaved lettuce, tri-colored cherry tomato, aioli ($6)

I got two tacos - the pastor was pretty good - very saucy. The shrimp was my favorite of the two - it was really great - but when you've got shrimp and bacon - how can it be bad?

The tacos tasted good - but they were REALLY tiny. If we didn't have the queso - we could have probably eaten four tacos each. So just keep that in mind when you order.

Why Should You Go? The queso is worth it - hands down. The decor is super fun as well. I'll definitely go back!
