Taqueria De Anda: The $1.25 Experience

Have you found yourself craving cabeza, buche, or lengua tacos? If so, then one of the only spots in Fullerton to get them is at Taqueria De Anda on the corner of Highland Ave. and Valencia. Of course there are more conventional meats for those who are less adventurous, which includes beef, chicken, pork, and Al Pastor (marinated pork). At $1.25 per taco there’s no reason a customer couldn’t be a little daring and try something new. This week we found out that lengua (beef toungue) has the texture of “rough tofu”.
The menu itself is pretty simple and there are translations for both English and Spanish speaking people. Simplicity is essential when this place catches the bar closing rush at 2 AM, but Taqueria De Anda is open 24 hours a day. In addition this business has been a staple of the Spanish speaking community in Fullerton for quite some time now. The tacos simply come with your choice of meat, onions, cilantro, and red or green salsa. Burritos are the same except that they come with rice and beans. I tried the carne asada (steak) tacos and was a little disappointed when the first bite was un-chewable, although it was well seasoned.  The Al Pastor tacos are tangy, yet delicious. Their chicken burrito was the best though. The meat was tender and everything blended together well with green salsa. This spot has a flavor and authenticity that chains like Chipotle could  only dream of replicating.
