Cheap Eats 2013: Taqueria la Placita

Quick reviews of ethnic cuisines you can experience for less than $25 a person, tax and tip included.

If your idea of a taco is a crunchy yellow shell stuffed with underseasoned ground beef, then this roadside dive will come as a bracing corrective. Opt for the more interesting meats if you’re a fan of offal—on the somewhat conservative side, we love the pork leg—and don’t forget that proper taco construction involves more embellishment (with lime, radish, pickled onions, and jalapeños) than a Tim Gunn makeover.
