live. eat.

the incredibly unassuming lily’s taqueria is tucked away at the very edge of downtown santa barbara.  it’s at the end of a dead end street right beside the freeway, and offers only a handful of items on its singularly focused menu (vegetarians beware).  but if you manage to find your way there, i promise you won’t be disappointed.  
while i’m not quite brave enough to try lip, cheek, tongue or eye tacos, the steak asada and pork adobada (spicy shepherd’s style) varieties, garnished with radish, cilantro, onion and lime, are the stuff my food fantasies are made of. rich, tangy and piquant, once you have finished two or three of these little bundles, your mouth will be pleasantly burning and your appetite just whetted.  the only solution is another couple of tacos, and a chilled bottle of mexican coke with real sugar.  now, if only they had beer…
