In order to get a taste of real “street” tacos—chopped meat grilled to order with diced onions and cilantro and a bit of salsa on two small corn tortillas served with a wedge of lime—Berkeley-ites have had to find a food truck or venture outside the city borders. But no longer. The International Boulevard taco truck success of Tacos Sinaloa has set up a tiny shop on hectic Telegraph Avenue near campus. Founder Guadalupe “Lupe” Bueno’s daughter Marlem and two siblings run the outpost where you can get some of the Bay Area’s most delicious, authentic tacos. And if you’re even the least bit of adventurous, then look past the chicken and beef to explore the specialty meats, including tripitas (beef intestine), lengua (beef tongue), and suadero (fatty beef stewed to pulled-pork consistency), and cabeza (beef’s head). It isn’t the middle-of-the-road kind of Mexican fare that caters to the American palate. Except that it’s being offered in Berkeley across the street from Fat Slice. Serves lunch and dinner daily.
