SX-Repost: Alayna's

The next in our series of SX-Reposts, the best tacos on Manor Road:

Taqueria Alayna's from September 28th, 2007

For those of you who have a love for breakfast tacos and the Eastsaaeeed, you'll want to go to Taqueria Alayna's aka the MAGIC TACO BOX! Alayna's is located on East Manor in a small shopping strip; its actually part of the washateria and next to my favorite place to take my trokita for a little tune-up, Funk-a-motive.

This is probably the only place I get a Huevos con Bacon ($1.75) taco in town. The tacos are big and plentiful with lots of bacon, but not strips, cuz that's lame, they do juicy bacon chunks and they good. The salsa is a bit out of the ordinary; its a green salsa heavy on the cilantro and pica pica! That's probably why I like it porque if it doesn't have a chispa, then it doesn't have flavor flave.

Second best taco is a classic, the bean & cheese taco ($1.50). The taco basically melts in your mouth; the cheese is cheesy and the beans tienen saborrr de los pintos de las Americas and a must have, the refried taste of the border. I would also have to say that they probably have the best beans in town. I always say that if a place has good beans, then rest of the food will be good. I guess that's my litmus test.

So next time you're thinking of going to that corner spot on Manor and Cherrywood (y'know what I'm talking about), just go 2 blocks further east, stick your hand in the magic taco box and magically, tacos will appear!
