Let's Taco 'Bout It

Good Bite

BY KENDALL SOMPOLSKI SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY MAR 10, 2017

Looking for authentic Mexican street tacos but don’t have the time (or patience) to track down a food truck? Look no further than La Brisa Tacos y Mariscos, a mom and pop Mexican restaurant and the token hidden gem of 301. Complimentary chips and a tray of home-made salsas seem to be a rarity these days but La Brisa sticks to its roots and serves them up as soon as you sit down. The four unique sauces—including one made with sour cream and jalapeño along with pickled red cabbage and cucumber—pair well with the signature tacos de carnitas, a favorite with locals. The fried pork tacos come with your choice of home-made corn or flour tortillas, onion, cilantro and served atop a mound of rice and refried beans. Stop chasing food trucks and head to La Brisa for an authentic, relaxing sit-down meal.

La Brisa Tacos y Mariscos, 1156 N. Washington Blvd., Sarasota, 941-552-8868.
