Finally round 2 for bro night happened after months of trying to make plans. We were going to check out Shiok but one bro was running late so we headed over to Jarrito Loco Tacos across the street. I’ve passed by this place more times than I can count. They’re next door to My Chau
Hours. Note: closed on Monday’s.
We dropped in on a Tuesday evening (around 5:15pm) and it was empty. I was surprised it actually got a bit busier along with a few people grabbing takeout. The inside has plenty of seating and is run by a two person crew. Randomly saw Todd Talbot (aka. the guy from Love it or List it) eating with his family.
The menu is small with one page of entrees, mains and sides.
Barely any chips and they were salty.
Insane although this was the best thing we ordered. Our Mexican friend wasn’t impressed; apparently, this is not how’s it’s normally made/presented.
Skip on the beans; it was bland and unmemorable.
Pork and cheese was a little better but we’ve had better pupusas elsewhere.
Tacos had a good crunchy bite but the chicken filling was slightly dry and bland. Feta cheese crumbled on top didn’t add much to dish.
The taco itself lacked in texture. Very average.
Happy that I finally was able to try JLT but likely won’t be back anytime soon. Food is okay but not authentic. The search for decent Mexican continues…
