13 Mexican Joints That Will Satisfy Your Taco and Burrito Cravings

The Mexicans and Filipinos have a lot of things in common: food, culture, and beliefs. Moreover, we love their authentic dishes like Tacos and Burritos.

This one is called Barbacoa. A Su Casa bestseller and its main ingredients are classic Mexican beef with pinto beans, tomato, onion, and Mexican rice. Barbacoa is a type of cooking meat that began in the Caribbean with the Taíno individuals, from which the expression “grill” started.(Source:Wikipedia)

Ideally, the authentic Mexican burrito’s main ingredients are only meat and refried beans. Meanwhile, in the US, burrito ingredients mostly are a combination of plain or Mexican-style rice, beans or refried beans, lettuce, salsa, meat, guacamole (optional), cheese, and sour cream.

Admittedly, I’ve been craving for some tacos and burritos lately so I asked my friends on Facebook to share with me their go-to Mexican restaurants that will satisfy our taco and burrito cravings!

Drive by taco

My Fil-Am hubby was craving for some authentic tacos last week. And by authentic I mean, it has to be a real Mexican-ish taste since he is from LA. We drove by Aguirre street and tried their tacos. Mike and I genuinely loved it and would definitely come back for more! For us, it’s Taco everyday with Drive By- Taco Shop! (Try their burritos, too!)
