|Pinches Taco Platter (Mole Pictured)|
So two weeks ago, I packed up my camera and the Adorable Monster and headed for Pinches, determined to capture evidence of my taco lunch to post for your enjoyment. Usually a chill atmosphere for weekday lunch, on this particular day, Pinches happened to be hopping. I placed my order, gathered my placard, and headed for the patio (it's dog friendly).

While I'm a fan of all the taco varieties, I have three favorites: the Mole, the Pescado, and the Asada. The mole comes with a super saucy serving of shredded chicken in rich mole sauce, topped with a little red salsa and queso fresco. The Pescado contains delicately breaded and fried fish, topped with Veracruz slaw and salsa. Finally, the Asada comes with bits of Angus beef, topped with a flavorful tomatillo salsa that tastes of lime juice and cilantro. All the tacos come served in fresh soft corn tortillas.
Pinches is the best kind of street food -- rich, flavorful, affordable, not all that healthy, but worth it all the same. Writing this is making me salivate... I just might have to make an emergency taco trip to Pinches right now.
