"Super?" ... Cha, "Super" doesn't even get close to describing how seriously "Rica" this place is. I propose "Holy-freaking-build-a-monument-for-it-Super" ... -Rica." Our Mamma and Papa GRUB used to hit up this spot back in the day, a random dude at Din Tai Fung in Arcadia told me to hit it up (side note ... Arcadia is like 100 miles from SB ... who is this guy? Or better question ... how ridiculously amazing is this place going to be?), and then when I caught my favorite radio show, The Petros and Money Show (PMS), talking them up ... it was like the holy-trifecta of Good Grub recommendation. And so our mission to hit up La Super-Rica Taqueria was born. And when my one year wedding anniversary rolled around, what better town to recommend to my bride than Santa Barbara? Yeah ... We can check out the amazing beaches, walk around downtown, take a stroll along the bike path down by the Zoo ... and did I mentioned we might be hitting up a legendary taco spot? Can you say ... romance? As you pull up to the joint, realizing there's no sign up on the building ... and the line is out the door ... well, let's just say brace for something epic. I mean seriously ... it's a hole-in-the-wall if there ever was one, but not just a hole-in-the-wall, but a hole-in-the-wall frequented by Julia Child (sorry, but now I can't get this Julia Child SNL video out of my head). Gazing up at the menu board, I remembered from my days back as a little kid about their amazingly scrumptious tacos, but is was Money from PMS that lead me to hitting up the Chorizo Especial ... a bowl of gooey, melted cheese encasing hearty chunks of chorizo ... matched up with a pile of fluffy, hot tortillas to make your own mini-taco-quesadilla-creations. To our order we added a taco de adobado (aka pork marinated in happiness), an order of chile con queso (for my veggie-loving-wife), and a heaping side of guacamole. As we waited in line, we got to peak into the kitchen and see the fresh, hand-made-tortilla-making action up close. Everything we got was pretty much unreal ... the meat was flavorful and tender, the tortillas were out-of-this-world, and the queso ... oh man, the queso. Let's just agree on one thing ... you better make sure you can tolerate some lactose before you hit up La Super-Rica. The cheese was thick and rich ... so much that Baby Carlos was pretty much in shock over how good it looked ... not at the table Carlos. We bathed everything in their trio of dangerously good salsas ... a fresca, a roja, and a verde ... all with a tiny bit of bight and a ton of sweet flavor. It was a magical way to spend our one year anniversary ... or any day for that matter. So thank you La Super-Rica ... I can tell we're going to make it for the long hall ... is it two early to start thinking about coming back for year two?
