Taqueria was started with a simple idea – a place where people would get fast clean good Mexican food in a comfortable, light environment. We want Taqueria Tacos & Burritos to be part of the neighborhood.

Won’t rush back but it was ok.
Ordered a chicken burrito, got about 5 grains of rice on it and hardly any chicken.
My friend got the vegetarian burrito, they put the tiniest bit of onion on it, realised it was “too much” and took some off again and put one sliver of pepper on.
Not too keen on spending $13 on a flavourless, cold, empty wrap.
The only gripe I have is usually you have to buy more than one to be completely satisfied, but who cares right? It’s Ponsonby and pricey and that’s why we love it!
Why then does this place churn out such tasteless food?
I want to like it so bad, but everything I’ve had lacks flavor. The meats are under-seasoned, there’s no cilantro or lime anywhere and the salsas add heat instead of actual flavor. The roasted red pepper salsa only tastes of heat. There’s no roasted anything flavor in it.
I’d understand if this was a country where some of the ingredients were hard to come by, but that’s not the case.
I hope they step it up so that by the time I forget how forgettable the food is and return I’m pleasantly surprised.
