Sofi is an adorable toddler with an equally cute older brother, with parents and grandparents who decided to open a family owned taco shop up in the Nations. Sofi just opened last week, and is a grassroots family taqueria.
What this taqueria has to offer is 1. The best of what you can get at a taco truck, but with dine-in ability at a few tables and chairs, 2. Mexican cokes and soda make with sugar (not corn syrup) to go with your meal, 3. Home made sauces (as seen above) which are fun to mix and match on various tacos, 4. A menu with tacos, flautas, burritos, and enchiladas, 5. reasonable prices that will not break the bank, 6. Earnest women who in the open kitchen who want to make a nice meal for you, and 7. It is within walking or 1-2 minute drive from most homes in the Nations, so it is so dang convenient.
I want to close this blog post by writing about the sauces on the come on the side. When I visited, there was salsa verde, salsa rojo, and crema rojo. I normallly do not use the side sauces because they are usually made with too much chili heat, that I can't taste my food anymore. These sauces were made at a Scoville level that I can tolerate, and a level which I consider a flavor, not just capsaicin. I really like the salsa verde with a bit of jalapeno heat, and a nice garlic and green tomatillo flavor. The salsa rojo was much more pungent in chile pepper heat. It was almost like the verde was the salt component, and the rojo was the pepper component of for the table. Lastly, the crema rojo tasted like crema and salsa rojo together, so there was a cooling effect from the crema, and mile punch from the chile peppers.
The next time you are in the Nations, gather up your spare change, and stop on in for a tasty taco.
