This weekend Mom and I were in Costa Mesa running errands and decided to have lunch in SoCo at a place called Taco Maria.
This is a cool joint where you can get interesting tacos and specialty drinks.
I ordered their Carnitas taco and their Arrachera taco.
Mom ordered the Mole con Pollo taco and the Jardineros taco. We shared the tacos with each other.
I think the Jardineros taco was the most interesting. They use shiitake mushrooms to make the chorizo and the crispy potatoes they put on top are tasty. I liked the presentation of the tacos too. They looked colorful and delicious.
I normally don't get to drink soda but Mom let me order the Mexican Coke so I could try it out. Mom couldn't really taste the difference between that and regular but I could. Mom ordered a hibiscus and pomegranate drink that had pepper and cilantro. SoCo has some great places to eat but Taco Maria is one of my top 3. If you're in Costa Mesa, make sure you check this place out.
