Taqueria La Gloria
Taqueria La Gloria is our routine taco stop either on the way, or even heading back from El Valle de Guadalupe. La Gloria is on the way to Rosarito, located off of the Carretera Libre. This isn't usually an "eat until your full" stop, but I'd like to think of it more as an appetizer. This taqueria has always been visually appealing to me. The tables are set with assorted chiles, salsas, radishes, and pickled onions. The concrete benches are covered in colorful tiles, and each table has a bright table cloth.
We thought that we would each have one taco, just to satisfy our growling stomachs. Really? I don't think that I can ever just stop at one taco. Well maybe, but that's a whole different story.
So back to these tacos. We asked to have pinto beans inside of our tacos de Carne Asada. I know that I have said it before, but I am all about textures. The beans add a slight creaminess to the grilled beef. Their guacamole is pleasant, and their salsa has a nice heat to it. Personally whenever I eat tacos, there has to be some heat. As our second taco, we opted for their adobada. The adobada is greasy and full of flavor. There are good types of greases in the world, and this is one of them.
These tacos have been a stop for our family for years, and will continue to be part of that tradition.
