Dia De Los Tacos

Tags: , ,

Dia De Los Tacos is quickly becoming a favorite part of Marquette. Chris and I make our own tacos for dinner at least once a week. When we’re too lazy to cook for ourselves, we often chase down this awesome new taco truck. They just started within the last year, and every time I see the truck, it looks like business is booming. They must be doing something right. With all gluten-free menu items like tacos and pupusas, you’ll never go hungry. Types of tacos include pulled chicken, pulled pork, handmade chorizo, and black bean with poblano pepper, each topped with a variety of garnish and cheese.

A pupusa is a traditional Salvadoran dish made of a thick, handmade corn tortilla, filled with cheese, beans, or pork. Their pupusas have chihuahua cheese or organic black beans. If you’ve never had a pupusa, try one. They are excellent. They also have a delicious dessert taco, absolutely worth trying. Tacos are $3 and Pupusas are $3. Often parked outside the Ore Dock Brewing Company on Spring Street, you will be all set for food, beer, company, and a gorgeous view of Lake Superior. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the awesome, friendly service! …The service is awesome and friendly.

As for Chris and I, we’ve been making a lot of veggie tacos for ourselves. Usually with zucchini, black beans, avocado, maybe a little queso and freshly chopped onion, they’re darn tasty and pretty healthy too. We grill corn tortillas on the griddle for a minute or so on each side before piling them high with tasty ingredients.
