La Taqueria – The Mexican joint with tacos and tales
Passatge de la Font 5
What do you get when you pair friendly and funny stuff with a small space and tasty tacos? La Taqueria of course. This place does not fall short when you think of an authentic Mexican restaurant and it is located in the ever tourist laden part of Sagrada Familía.
Just a few blocks away from vermut hotspot Casa Mariol, you can delve into some serious Mexican treats.
What makes La Taqueria so great is the friendliness, it is super down to earth and informal. The food doesn’t attempt to be fancy, it is simple and unapologetic Mexican street food. Nachos come piled with an array of toppings and sauces such as fried beans and chilli sauce, not for the fainthearted – we were warned.
We ordered the tacos al pastor, four small tacos with meat and a pineapple chunk plunked inside and another that had delicious spicy sausages. They were delicious, and this washed down with a caña in a lively little dig was just how we like to lunch in Barcelona. Sometimes you just have to get your hands a little dirty at the table.
Be warned, people do reserve tables in advance and it does get rather busy but is all a part of the experience.
