Sorry for the lack of posts lately! Life has been pretty crazy busy lately, particularly with trying to finish up grad school… And the blog backlog just keeps piling up! Yikes.
Anyway, last month, I attended San Diego Reader’s Tacotopia event, which featured over 30 different taco vendors in Golden Hill Park. We were invited on behalf of the “Spicy Loves Milk” campaign, which promotes pairing milk with spicy tacos!

I thought that the milk really did take some of the edge off of the spiciness! I enjoyed the blistered chili pepper in the taco a lot.
Anyway, since S and I arrived a bit late to the event, the lines were already quite long. We decided to start out by splitting up for two of the vendors that were on my “must-try” list, City Tacos and Bracero.
City Tacos and its sister restaurant, Tostadas, were offering two different tacos and their signature “Sandia” tostada. However, there was a wait for one of the tacos so I just went ahead and got the two items that were readily available. The steak was tender and juicy, and I liked the blue corn tortilla. The Sandia tostada, with ahi tuna, avocados, and watermelon, was delicious as always and refreshing.
Meanwhile, the line at Bracero was moving quite slowly. After City Tacos, I went into the line for Galaxy Tacos, which offered a simple yet delicious carnitas taco on their signature blue corn tortilla.
