Ok, I lied. It was actually 6 tacos. They were on those little shells that are about 4 inches around.  No beverage except water

$3 is pretty expensive per taco. Should be closer to $1.50 in my view.

If you though the Taquitos at Los Taquitos are expensive, you should go down the street to Si Casa Flores and see what they charge!

DH is feeling bougie after paying cash for land. The lord and lady are out and about.

I have a feeling these tacos have scarred her for a while.  I know I feel bad about spending for tacos, they do want a fortune for them these days!

That’s why I dine at the Old#7 taco mart down the hall from my office. Custom made the way YOU like them. The beer is always good.

You can only buy bare land with cash, unless you do owner carry. Banks usually will not loan on just dirt. I would have needed to tie it up with a construction loan.

Cash is 🤴 if you want things done quickly and with less complications.

If you want good tacos, find a truck or a tacqueria, not a trendy hipster boutique with a chef.

We were in the downtown bougie area. Not sure where they keep the Authentic hole in the wall taco places.

My tacos were made by white people. 🙍🏼‍♀️🙍🏼

A good Mexican joint will have a cook.  A cook named Juana or Lupe or Maria, or maybe all three.

Served with artisanal hand spun heavy cream by a guy with a waxed mustache, a full sleeve of tats and a name like Gareth.  All for just $27.00

Lupe is short for Guadalupe. And Jauna is short for Marijuana.

The Chipotle like take out place near me charges $9 and change for 3 soft shell or hard shell tacos of reasonable size, and a side of chips and salsa.  It might be slightly more if you get the sliced beef.

But if you want a nice atmosphere and service, you're paying for more than just the tacos, and that can be fine too.

On our trip to Mexico City about 8 years ago, we ordered blue tortillas filled with whatever the customer before ordered from the elderly lady street vendor. The same trip my daughter ordered some pastries for the bus ride to the pyramids, and was disgusted to find out the filling was salmon.

There's a hole in the wall burrito place next town over.  Not much of a Mexican prescence, but they make great, to order burritos and tacos for cheap.

I just looked at my fish taco place and my "back-up" place.  Seems your prices are fine.

Of course.  Tacos can only be taco-sized.  Next up is burrito size, but then you would call it a burrito!

I will get a picture of Mena’s menu next one I’m over there. Best tacos are when the young girl taking the order turns and says “MAMA!”
