Today we stopped at a little place with great promotions and excellent molcajete sauce called Tacos Doña Ceci, in La Primavera.
Hello, again. My dad and I, and sometimes my mom comes along too, have been going out on the town to find some of the best hole in the wall, off the beaten path cheap eats restaurants that we can find. We go out almost every day, finding some new little place to tell you about and review the food and prices.
My dad had to go run some errands and, as usual, I ran along with him. But, on our way back we wanted some brunch, as I hadn’t even had breakfast yet and it was almost 1:00. We decided to stop at a place that we had went to once before, that had really yummy tacos and for pretty good prices. The stand is called Tacos Doña Ceci, and is located on Calle Capulin, in colonia La Primavera, and the longitude latitude location is 20.630231146273914, -105.21311464393435. They are open Monday-Saturday from 7:00 am-3:00 pm.
Tacos Doña Ceci serves, as it says in their name, tacos but also quesadillas, arrieros, and volcanes. For the meat they have birria, asada, adobada, chorizo, and only on Friday and Saturday they have fish and shrimp. We happened to be there on a Saturday, and I must say the seafood was super fresh and a prime quality.
But they also have some really good every-day promotions. For example, they have 3 birria tacos with a consume and small water for 45 pesos, or a little over $2 dollars, or 4 tacos and water for 60 pesos, about $3 dollars.
I was hungry since I hadn’t eaten at all, so I got a giant birria quesadilla. The tortilla was hand made and tasted really good; it had a nice corn flavor and the perfect texture of a freshly cooked corn tortilla. The birria was super juicy and full of different spices. Even through the quesadilla, with a thick tortilla and lots of cheese in with it, I could taste that the birria had lots of clove, cinnamon, and other spices. Also, I liked how stretchy and melty the cheese was. But, me who likes everything really salty I did have to add some salt.
My dad got the 3 tacos deal, and he really enjoyed them. Though, he did add a lot of sauce to them. He loves spicy sauces, and his favorite part about the stand is the molcajete one. It’s made fresh every morning, by roasting chilies and other vegetables and cooking them right in the giant molcajete over an open flame. You can also see all the roasted tomatoes and peppers in it. And, I think it’s super cool that the molcajete they use is as old as 50 or 60 years, and belonged to one of the girl’s grandmothers, which she used for the same purpose of making the family recipe sauce. So, the molcajete has a lot of love, experience, and flavor ground into it. It’s very, very special.
The stand is kind of small but it has enough room for one of the girls to cook, however there isn’t very much seating. They only have like 3 chairs, but there are some steps nearby if you don’t mind sitting on them. Also I just want to say that the two girls are very friendly and the service is quite nice.
