Takesos y Papas: Tijuana Style Tacos go Upscale
|El famoso quesataco, Takesos y Papas|
The quesataco is a 180-degree turn on the northern quesataco--here, the ingredients are deposited in a fried cheese envelope that Marcos Flores griddles until it's smooth as glass. You can choose any protein for your quesataco, but simpler is better. It's a brilliant creation, and come on, fried cheese?--orale! You can have it by itself or on a tortilla.
The taco dulce con piña will be your last round--a rare dessert taco that is a quesataco with sweet sauces: mango, strawberry, and raspberry with bits of pineapple and a sprinkle of chopped pecans. Add a savory contrast of steak, or shrimp--you'll delight in the delicate balance of flavors.
|Salsa lesson, Takesos y Papas|
Takesos y Papas is light years ahead of the great taco rush these past few years, and it's 100% Tijuanense. Forget about those cheesy taco books, and corporate magazine spreads--the future of the upscale taqueria is right here in a Tijuana mall food court.
