Our M.O. is to order a variety of tacos to see how they do the basics. Audrey went for a carne asada steak taco – pretty standard with a corn tortilla, onions and cilantro. It was OK – a little dry – but she added some salsa.
Then the other standard – Al Pastor. It’s a tricky dish with a red sauce and a sweet surprise of pineapple inside. Then topped with onion and cilantro. This was pretty good – not my favorite Al Pastor but not too bad. (My fav is still La Mexicana in Newport.)
I also got a tostada (I think that’s what it was) which was open faced and had lots of toppings. This was really tasty but a little difficult to eat. I broke off pieces and ate it like nachos.
I also got a shrimp taco which was probably my favorite – the shrimp was juicy and it was loaded with toppings! Love when they have an “Americanized” version with sour cream and cheese.
Taqueria San Miguel also has a good selection of beer if you’re in the mood for that.
Why Should You Go? Well – it’s not bad – I still like La Mexicana better but all in all – we had a good lunch and it’s very affordable.
