These summer nights make it tough to stay in doors when there's still a few hours of light out. I was itching to get out and try some place new and enjoy the evening a bit. La Otra Taqueria Escuela was the perfect solution to my quandary. I had been to Taqueria Escuela once and only once for the sheer purpose of trying their churros, a task I highly recommend to you. Well, Taqueria Escuela since moved around the corner to La Otra Taqueria Escuela into a bigger space. It's a cool space, but still small. There are shoes trees hanging from the ceiling, white tiles lining the walls, an open kitchen, and maybe 15 tables fill the space. The menu definitely differs from your average taco shop with the addition of fillings such as branzino (which we loved, pictured below), lobster, and pork ribs, but still maintaining classics like carne asada and carnitas. The tacos are small, but served with two to an order which was perfect for me- and perfect for sharesies! We paired our tacos with chips and salsa, and a side of beans. Big fan of their beans which had a great slightly smokey flavor. I love Mexican food and La Otra Taqueria Escuela is a great addition to the area.

I definitely want to go back to try their Chicken Tinga Burrito. Have you been? What did you get?
