The satisfying, fresh corn tortillas here are a little larger and chewier than most, and serve as a great canvas for the fun taco fillings available at this newly reopened version of Colonia Tacos Lounge. The beloved fried cauliflower taco is like a tasty, battered fish taco with cauliflower instead of fish—tell all your vegetarian friends. The duck carnitas are some of the best around, served with a splash of spicy red sauce, pickled onions and avocado. Drive-through service at the small taqueria will be available soon; in the meantime, there’s outdoor seating on a small patio and picnic tables behind the parking lot. Chef Ricardo Diaz is slowly expanding the menu to rival the list at the old location—the are currently around 15 taco options daily ($2.50).

I really loved everything about Colonia Tacos Guisados. Their menus is truly impressive and boast and large amount of taco options, all of which (or maybe almost all) come in at $2.50 a pop. This joint is definitely worth a visit, even if you're across town.
