Recess Food Alley in Little Baguio, San Juan could be your new food destination especially if you’re tired of the big, crowded food parks right now. This houses a humble number of stalls yet all are packing something interesting for me and you.
One of the stalls there is Taco Joe’s, an unassuming yet promising taco joint. I was able to do a brief visit, which I wished I’ve had stayed longer.
You would lower your expectations of the food given the casual and small setting. To my surprise, Taco Joe’s delivered big on flavor. And no, they do not just wing their tacos.
They give you a selection of tacos on solo, tag team (2 pcs), or over rice. I’d recommend getting the Baha Fish (Php 85 solo). It’s pan-fried to a crisp with red lettuce, mango, and some creamy guac and sour cream topped off with cilantro. This combination was on point with the soft tortilla.
The Macho Nachos (Php 195) is another story. Unlike most nachos offered both in big and small restaurants that served then sweet, this one delivers on overall taste and that touch of authenticity. It’s the unabashed combination of tortilla chips, ground beef, lettuce, and even more guac and sour cream. It has the potential to be on of the better nachos in this side of town.
Fan of affordable and quick Mexican? Two words. Taco and Joe’s.
