Taco Azteca

 In Las Vegas there is such an abundance of Mexican restaurants that I find it overwhelming, but in a good way!  Just choosing where to eat for Mexican food makes it a bit harder.  After over a year of driving pass Taco Azteca, my friend and I finally went there!  We finally crossed this place off of our "foodie bucket list":



In the evenings they have their mini food truck in front of the restaurant:


Menu:


My friend had given up carne for Lent and when looking at this menu, we assumed the Quesadilla only had queso inside the folded tortilla.  When she got it, there was also carne inside!  I graciously took it from her and requested from the cook to have another quesadilla with only queso.  

For our drinks we each had a Champurrado (not on this menu).  This is a warm, thick, 'chocolately' drink, based on hominy flour, piloncillo, water or milk, and may also contain cinnamon, anise seed and/or vanilla bean.  This is not your average cocoa!  This drink is perfect for cold weather and is best to accompany it with a small snack or by itself!

Whenever I'm craving a late night snack, I'll make sure to come by Taco Azteca again :)
