I've found a new favorite eatery in my Mira Mesa neighborhood! Mama Testa Taqueria it is!
The salsa bar caught my eye immediately. There are over a dozen different salsas to please any palate. I gravitated to those salsas to the left on the picture below. Yes, "4 chiles" hot! All the salsas were delish!
My kids enjoyed the "Mini Blandito": One soft taco with grilled steak or grilled chicken, topped with onion and cilantro. Served with rice and beans. Simple but very tasty, so much so my son asked for a 2nd serving! I guess he's betting too big for the kids meals now. Sometimes I feel like my 7 year old has the appetite of a teenager!
Hubby has the "Mamá Blanditos" which were soft tacos with bistec a.k.a. steak with three corn tortillas stuffed with savory grilled steak, topped with cilantro, onion and red tomatillo salsa. Hubby liked his tacos pushed wishes his tacos were a bit more hearty. He too has a pretty big appetite!
The menu has dozens of different tacos to choose from. It was hard to decide. The more I looked at the menu, the more my mouth watered! I finally decided on the Mamá Guisados, Stew in Soft Tortillas, "Embarras" plate which came recommended by our server. The two jumbo shrimp tacos were topped with Mexican coleslaw and queso fresco. The shrimp were huge and cooked to perfection. These tacos exceeded my expectation. These tacos are everything a shrimp taco should be!
I can't wait to visit again to try more of the mouth watering menu! See you again soon Mama Testa!
