The Location: El Mariachi, Davis - Farmer's Market stand
The Taco: Large Taco
The Price: $7.50/plate (includes rice & beans)
The Verdict: We found this taco plate on a recent trip to the Davis Farmer's Market where a number of food vendors set up temporary shop on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer. This one came from El Mariachi whose regular storefront can be found on G St in Davis.
I ordered the "large taco" with carnitas, and it was prepared quickly in the little tent and served steaming hot. As far as tacos go, this was definitely on the large side, stuffed full with lots of meat as well as a dash of pico de gallo and… well, frankly I don't know what else because it was almost all meat. Thumbs up! My only complaint was that the meat was a little on the dry side. No doubt serving from a temporary tent in the middle of Central Park isn't the most optimum kitchen environment, so I will give them the benefit of the doubt and look forward to giving them a second chance at their bricks and mortar location sometime soon.
The Rating: ★★★ ½ (out of 5)
