Mexican Food at Taqueria 101

by - Friday, November 10, 2017

My sister has been craving a lot of cuisines recently. This time, she asked me to take her to Taqueria 101, a small Mexican joint along Better Living in Paranaque. I promised to take her there on a Sunday afternoon, where we had our early dinner with my brother. 

Elote P180
Grilled corn on the cob, Chipotle mayo, Katsuboshi, Parmesan. They serve the elote on the cob, but they will ask you if you want it shredded instead. Since we didn't want an added struggle to eating the corn (plus so we can share it without being laway conscious), we just had it served shredded. I've had a lot of elote since it became popular in Manila, and this isn't the best by far. It lacked the spice, plus the chipotle mayo sauce can do better. 

Nacho Spam Fries P280
Spam fries coated in crushed, colorful nacho chips, served with a dip. It took time for me to decide on how I really felt about Taqueria 101's Spam fries. It's not something you'll like or hate on the first bite. Same goes on whether I liked it with the dip or not. The nacho chips tasted a bit weird around the Spam, which made me decide that dipping it on the sauce is a must. Other than that, I found this to be an okay dish.

Taco Promo P250
5 flavors of soft tacos in one plate. The flavors include shawarma, ox tail, fish, lengua, and chicken. My favorite, and probably the one thing I'd like to come back for, is the ox tail soft taco. The flavors of the meat plus the sauce, cilantro and lime combined goes so well together. 

Spicy Tuna Hard Taco P170
I didn't get a taste of this, but for the sake of documenting the whole experience, I'm including the photo on this post. It tasted okay according to my sister.

We all found the food in Taqueria 101 to be okay. Some of the dishes were good, but we did not experience anything with a wow factor. However, since I loved the oxtail soft taco from Taqueria 101, I'm planning on trying out their oxtail burrito on my next visit, since this is also a highly recommended dish. While I'm at it, I'll probably try their churros as well.
