Tacos and Guac!

1. Dorodo Club – Flavors and food. This taco was the most filling and flavorful taco I had in all of my 3 months in Puerto Escondido. The portion size alone makes it worth eating here but add the fact that is has so much flavor and heaped with fresh ingredients this taco can’t be compared. Since the fish is not breaded or deep fried this taco leaves you feeling refreshed afterward, even if you are stuffed full.

Can not go wrong with a smoked taco!

2. Smoked Fish tacos El Viejo – Oh man smoked meat. I come from a small town where we smoke our own sausage and jerky so finding a place with a smoked meat I had to immediately eat here. Hands down the smoked tuna taco tickled my feel goods. I could eat this taco every day and I would have except I have to have like 3 or more to get full and they are a bit pricy at 45 pesos a piece.

3. Fish Tacos La Punta – This place isn’t on Google Maps and I believe the hand painted sign just says Fish Tacos on it. It might not look like much, besides a small stand in an empty lot, but if you want some top notch fish tacos, and the cheapest eats in La Punta, head on over. Located on Brisas street, opposite of La Cabanita.

  • Wild Tip: This stand is only open in the evening for dinner, after 6 or 7pm.

Surfin for great tacos!

4. The last on the list is a brand new taco stand that just opened before I left Puerto Escondido. It’s not on google maps and I did not have my phone whenever I ate here, so obviously I cant remember the name, but it is located directly opposite the police station in La Punta. The taco was a little thin, with only shrimp and cabbage as a filling, but man the flavor was incredible. I had the non-breaded strip taco cooked in a red wine vinaigrette. The red wine made the simplicity of the taco pop, I couldn’t get enough.
