Price Scale

When Roberto Salmerón launched a taco shop in 2011, he looked to the Mexican street tacos he grew up on, not to duplicate, but to harness their flavors and affordability. Never mind that his restaurant upstairs in Broadway Alley was invisible from the street. The following came based on those perfect tacos: two lightly griddled corn tortillas with such proteins as adobada—marinated pork sheared off a vertical spit and topped with a square of grilled pineapple—or other fillings like carne asada, pollo asado, prickly pear cactus leaf. Now, mercifully, Tacos Chukís has four locations around town; the price per taco has gone up a bit, but even at two bucks, it’s a steal.
