I’ve only written one other “Taco Tuesday” post, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been frequenting the various taco shops in Kansas City.
A few months back, my former coworkers Rob, Ruth and I chowed down at Cancun Fiesta Fresh in Old Westport during our lunch break. I pretty much always defer to Rob for taco expertise, and his choice of Cancun Fiesta Fresh did not disappoint.
The location is a bit random — just a little shack in Old Westport — and it’s nothing to write home about as far as the interior is concerned. But those types of places always get me excited, because I can almost always count on them being so good when it comes to what’s on my plate. Speaking of…
Cancun Fiesta Fresh offers tasty street-style tacos with the usual suspects (asada, carnitas, pollo) as well as a few more adventurous tiny tacos, namely beef tongue and beef cheek.
Can you guess which ones I opted for?
If you guessed asada (marinated beef) and pollo (chicken), you’re correct…and if you added in a little beef cheek for good measure, you’re spot-on!
I enjoyed my dining experience at Cancun Fiesta Fresh — not just because it got me out of my chicken-and-steak safety zone, but because the flavors, textures and atmosphere of this little hole-in-the-wall taco shop were pretty much perfect. No soggy corn tortillas here!
KC-area folks: Have you tried Cancun Fiesta Fresh?
Out-of-town folks: What is the craziest taco you’ve ever had? Or, OK, just the best in your area? I may have to come visit!
