In case you didn’t know…

…I LOVE tacos. The Twin-Cities are kind of lacking in the taco department but the best I have found are the ones from Taqueria Los Ocampo (though they are still no match compared to La Tienda in Gainesville <3). They have multiple locations but I have been to the Lake St one which is more of a fast casual place that is usually always busy and the one in St Paul which is more like a sit down restaurant. I usually always get the Al Pastor taco which is my favorite style.

These are from the Lake St location. The Al Pastor here tends to be a tiny bit dry but still enjoyable.

These are from the St Paul location. I would say these are a grade above the ones served at in the Lake St location.

tacos y cerveza

My favorite tacos and my favorite beer. What else can I ask for?
Campechano tacos. Grilled steak and sausage with onions and cilantro served on fresh-made tortillas. These were so good, the meat was nice and caramelized.

Fresh, warm chips!

Bell’s Hopslam is now my favorite beer. Unfortunately, it is only offered once a year. It really went well with the spicy food. It wasn’t as bitter as I thought. The honey used in brewing the beer really balanced it. The aromas were crazy awesome. There’s a lot of citrus and tropical fruit smell coming off it. I can’t wait till next year so I can get more of it.
