Lolita’s Taco Shop Clairemont

Nothing beats a haunted moonlit night on All Hallows Eve…. And on this fatal night, at this witching time, the starless sky laments black and unmoving. The somber hues of an ominous, dark forest are suddenly illuminated under the emerging face of the full moon.

Place is prepared for All Hallows Eve.  Ghosts bob up and down near the ceiling.  Huge spiders abound.  In case I don’t make it out of here I should confess once in awhile I like to eat a vegetarian meal.

That means a potato taco here or at Don Carlos Taco shop.  The hard shell taco has just the right amount of grease and crunch.  Light corn flavor goes well with the lightly seasoned mashed potato filling.  I like the filling a bit better at Don Carlos but this taco is really good.

Beef taquitos.

Beef taquitos were crunchy but lacked flavor.  I just tasted fried corn tortilla.  Could have used a higher meat to tortilla ratio and meat needed more marinating.  El Indio’s has the best beef to tortilla ratio I’ve found in a taco shop.  🙂

Staff was very nice.  Maybe they know nobody gets out of here…

  3. lolitas! i think most people know about their carne asada fries and the california burrito or carne asada burrito. have you tried any of those yet? i like splitting the large fries so i don’t feel so gluttonous. i have never ordered a potato taco in my life. seems strange without meat or typical veggies…

      I’ve never tried carne asada fries or burrito’s. What I like is tacos, or just meat. Fries are good too but I eat those plain. If you like fries and hard shell tacos I think you would like a potato taco.
