Raise your glass to the elevation of street tacos
At this Barrio Logan mainstay — now with a location in National City — handmade tortillas and finely cooked ingredients make a case that the humble taco is worthy of gourmet status. Take the signature Barrio taco, which loads a flour tortilla with spicy stewed beef, nopal cactus, and the most flavorful beans in town.
But that’s merely one of many Tacotopia-worthy tacos. Salud builds a bounty of sumptuous tacos loaded with grilled meats, guisados, and grilled vegetables (for the vegetarian set). Visit in the morning for a breakfast taco of chorizo, bacon, and egg over easy. Visit late night for a Califas, the taco take on a California burrito, which adds French fries, cheddar cheese and guacamole to your choice of meat.
Visit all day long to sample one of everything, from mesquite grilled carne asada to beer battered catfish, from crispy carnitas to a surf and turf of shrimp and steak. Salud is part of a new generation of taco shops that strive to raise San Diego’s taco game a little closer to that of our neighbors in Mexico, and does a smashing job at it!
