Nate got the Turtle Shell ($8) which is a burrito stuffed with rice, beans, sour cream, lettuce, salsa, meat, veggies and cheese – they even seal it with cheese! Nate loves this and tells me how awesome it is – if I go back – I’m trying that. They crisp it up like a tostada and I have to say – it looks pretty awesome.
Here’s a big list of the topping choices: chicken, barbacoa, carnitas, vegetarian, fish, slaw, lettuce, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, rice, black beans and pinto beans. The salsas are: gomez, kowabunga, corn, verde and pineapple.
I did two soft shell tacos ($8 – tacos & turtles come with chips/salsa & drink). I got carnitas and pineapple salsa in one and fish with gomez in the other. I didn’t care for the fish taco at all – I couldn’t tell if it was grilled or fried and it tasted really mushy. I liked the pork & pineapple better. It was okay – but I still like Taqueria Mercado or La Mexicana better. (I still need to try Mazunte.)
I was there during World Cup and in Cincinnati – during World Cup – you find people like this eating tacos with you. After I got over being scared – I grabbed a selfie with my new friend. 🙂
