Hermanos Taco Shop

My husband and I are huge fans of Mexican food and we've heard a lot of good comments about Hermanos Taco Shop, one of them being the owner is Mexican so you get authentic food. A couple of weeks ago, we tried it for lunch.

When we got there, the owner, Rene Rodriguez, greeted us and took our orders. Since it was our first time, we asked for suggestions. He said that their burritos are big enough to share so we can just get one and then order a taco. He suggested we get the California Burrito and Rolled Tacos.
 Mr. Rene Rodriguez

 Soft Tacos Combo (Beef & Chicken)
Php195.00 for 4 pcs.

What it is: crunchy taquitos, served with cheese sauce, sour cream, shredded lettuce, pico de gallo, chips and salsa.

This was good. We got two sticks of beef and two sticks of chicken. Since there is sauce on top of the tacos, some parts weren't crunchy anymore which I really, really liked. I also liked adding salsa to it. However, my husband & I both like the beef more so next time, we'll skip the chicken.

California Burrito

What it is: a burrito served with french fries, diced sirloin steak, cheese sauce, sour cream and pico de gallo.

This was a bit weird. It had fries IN the burrito. We've never had fries inside a burrito before and we didn't really like it. It was starchy and carbo-loaded.

The burrito we had was a bit disappointing but the soft taco was really good so their other food looks very promising. We will come back and try the other burritos - we'll stick with the all meat ones. I was, however, a bit surprised though that their food is quite pricey especially since the restaurant looks otherwise. But I hope the next time we eat there again, the food can justify the price range. I have to mention too that Mr. Rodriguez was very pleasant and accommodating, checking if our food is okay and if there was anything else that we need. Really nice guy!

Here are photos of their menu:
