Mr. Taco : Lima Peru

I was in Jesus Maria today visiting with my wife and discovered a Taco Stand on the street on Av. Salaverry a few minutes from downtown (av. tacna – plaza vea area). It is a small stand with a huge neon sign you cannot miss it. They charge s./ 10 to s./13 for Tacos made fresh while you wait. Quite different from “Street Tacos” in Mexico but Tacos in Peru none the less. I just shook my head in disbelief. They also serve sandwiches for about s./5 . The Peruvian taco stand sells pollo, chicken, carne, beef, chorizo, sausage, and Puerco. I did not sample any but did witness them being made although I would like to point out that all of the Peruvians were eating sandwiches, that made me laugh. The tacos at Mr. Taco come on a pre made large flour tortilla and are served with sauteed onion. They looked ok but I did not try as they seemed pricey for what you got and we had already eaten.
