Little Miner Taco

Have you tried Birria tacos? I’ve been wanting to try them since they popped off, so I checked out Little Miner Taco. It’s a restaurant with a few locations in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area, which includes its location at Pike & Rose (inside of the Block). They often use their truck to have scheduled pick-up locations in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.

Little Miner Taco started posting locations with dates for food truck pick up, and it usually sells out fast. I was so excited when I saw that they’d be in my area that I set an alarm to make sure I didn’t miss the opportunity to order at noon. After you order, they’ll text you with your pick-up time and location. One can’t help but be amazed by Little Miner Taco’s Birria de Res quesotacos with the consommé broth on the side for dipping.

WHAT I ORDERED

Birria de Res

Three words about the Birria de Res. Worth the hype. Each taco has braised beef topped with Monterrey Jack cheese. The braised beef was perfectly tender. Somehow, each bite got better and better. The Beef Consommé broth truly makes these quesotacos a game changer. They taste amazing by themselves, but dipping them in the consommé takes it to another level.

Carne Asada Fries with Shrimp

This was the first time in four years that I’d had carne asada anything. I’ve been hesitant to try any outside of San Diego. With Little Miner Taco’s carne asada fries, you have the option of adding shrimp or lobster to it for extra money. I was blown away by how incredible they tasted. The cut of the potato was unique, and the thickness helps add more mph to the dish. The shrimp was perfectly cooked. The steak (carne asada) was fantastic. All of the toppings worked together well, but my absolute favorite was the sriracha aioli. The aioli was a great touch and complimented the dish very well. This dish started off great and tasted better with every bite. These fries cost $20 because of the shrimp add-on. It was a great price considering they don’t skimp on how much they give you.

CONCLUSION

I loved how easy the pick-up process was. It wasn’t a busy pickup spot, so there were very few people I had to be around. This was comforting since social distancing is what’s best right now. The staff was so pleasant, and my food was ready so fast. The food was incredible, and I can’t wait to order again. Little Miner Taco’s locations (Brentwood and Pike & Rose) are both open for pick-up and delivery. To find out where their food truck will be, check out their Instagram. Kids eat free for life at all of their locations as well! If you’re ever in the area looking for some amazing fries or quesotacos, check out Little Miner Taco!

Until next time.
