when you’ve got a name like la superior, expectations are automatically set pretty high. come hungry, the mexican street fare is spot on and these guys live up to the name.
don’t be surprised if there’s a line out the door when you arrive. hipsters and waterfront people alike are all vying for one of the tiny little tables or a few seats at the bar. when we go, we always sit at the bar and i start with a margarita. these are not your typical margaritas though… they top them with a little cayenne (or something that’s sprinkly, red and spicy) and the flavors tend mellow after the ice has had a chance to settle. if you’re a little lady like me, just one is all you need! these bad boys are strong…
this time, we did the flautas de pollo first and had a few gorditas and a fish taco as an entree. their flautas were perfectly fried; crunchy and snappy, not the slightest bit greasy (which is important when trying to convince yourself you’re eating healthy). you’ll notice the different sauces on each of the plates too, they really layer in that extra level of flavor and spice that makes la superior so special. and don’t be shy, order a bunch. dishes are small and they fly out of the kitchen quickly. i’ve tried about 75% of the menu and you really can’t go wrong with any of it (not even the pig’s feet)!
the decor on the inside is nothing to write home about but as far as mexican street tacos go, i say they’re be best in the ’hood!
