If they don’t serve endless chips with guacamole, they’re probably not a real Mexican restaurant. Unless it’s my favorite Mexican restaurant, who happen to fail to oblige to my twisted economical rules (believe me, all-you-can-eat guac is a feasible quick-cash method if you’ve got me and my friends in the neighborhood). Anyway, I will make an exception for the lovely Taquería Ta’Cabrón on Skalitzerstraße in Kreuzberg.
Not only is the food delicious — I mean, really delicious — it is also just so conveniently somewhere in between “we’re going out to eat” and “fast food to go”. The prices are decent, the quality is high, we love the Dos Equis, the self-serving, the benches, tables and the tree (the tree!) on the sidewalk, watching the U-Bahn pass on the highrails. And did I mention the food is great? Burritos, Enchiladas, Tacos, Tostadas, whatever you Latin America craving heart needs. The guys working the store are always on their best behavior.
But most importantly, this is one place that me and my friends can all agree on when we’re out of ideas where to eat. “Burgers? Shawarma? Falafel? Pizza?” No, no, no, no. We eat that crap everyday! “Wait, what about that Mexican place, we haven’t been there for like, two weeks!” And then that’s where we go, and we’re all happy.
