I've never been to Tacofino but I was immediately thrown off by the prices here. The tacos here are slightly larger than your standard taco but each costing a whopping $6 (versus $2.75 at La Taqueria and $3 at Tacomio)! I know the tacos here are bigger but still the cost versus size ratio does not measure out. We each ordered a fish taco, which contains a smallish piece of battered cod topped with cabbage shreds, chipotle mayo, and fresh salsa. Undoubtedly, the taste is very delicious and fresh. The fish is tender, soft on the inside and nice, crisp on the outside while the tortilla is chewy and soft.
My friend went ahead and ordered another taco since one is definitely not enough. I, however, did not want to end up paying $12 for two tacos so I opted to try the Ajiaco Soup. Although at $9, the soup is not much cheaper. Made with potato, avocado, a chunk of corn, a dollop of sour cream, and small shreds of chicken, this soup was quite watery, for a lack of a better word. I didn't hate it, but it's not an item I would order again as I found the combination of watery soup and chunks of raw avocado slightly strange. With that said, this is a very light and refreshing side that's almost big enough to be a main.
