Chica’s Taco Bar. A local restaurant located on McMullen Booth, squeezed between Anthony’s Pizza and Carmel Kitchen. Upon walking in, its wood walls and tables and earthy tones are usual for the common Mexican themed restaurants. The tunes of Shakira and salsa music hint at its Latin cuisine. On the menu is an eclectic variety of tacos from Korean BBQ to ranch crispy chicken. Each taco comes with a side of chips which is quite the bonus.

However, what is so awesome about this place is their Taco Tuesdays, where tacos are buy one get one free! Tacos range from $3.95 to $6.95, so it is quite the steal. My favorite taco is the Baja Crispy Fish ($5.25), which is topped with a mango jicama slaw, avocado, and fuego salsa. There are even vegetarian options such as the Grilled Portobello, which is made with roasted corn pico, avocado, lime crema, and a dash of pickled red onion. Of course, if tacos aren’t your thing, there are options of bowls and burritos.

To top off the two to four tacos already devoured, the dessert menu is definitely one to consider. I recommend the bag of churros, which is an actual paper bag filled with about 6 churros and your choice of warm hot chocolate or caramel sauce to dip. And all for the price of $3.45. As someone who goes to Latin restaurants quite often, it doesn’t get better than that. Overall this restaurant is one definitely to consider when you don’t know where to go or want a change of scenery from Chipotle and Moe’s.
