After many positive reviews, it’s been high on my to-do list and we actually visited during their lunch restaurant week, which was just $15 a person and gave us a good sampling of the menu.

Fresh chunks of fish, lightly seasoned and served on a toasted crispy blue corn tortilla. Galaxy grinds its own masa for making the tortillas. This was a pleasant way to start our meal.

I chose a more hearty starter for my meal. The clams were bathed in a light, tomato based broth and served with crusty grilled bread.

Of the four tacos we ordered, this one was my favorite. Piled high with shredded pork shoulder, jalapeno slaw, and a small piece of chicharron. The pork was very tender and flavorful.

The lamb was slightly spicy, balanced with a tomato mint salsa and yogurt sauce. We enjoyed this one as well.

Chicken Adobo

The chicken was a slight disappointment. We liked the flavors, but wished there was more topping. It looked a little sparse compared to the other tacos.

Carne Asada

Another solid choice, with thick-cut chunks of steak, bone marrow salsa, and a generous dollop of guacamole.

I was seriously contemplating the churros, but we were in a bit of a rush, so we decided to wait for another time.

Overall, we had a nice meal here. The service was attentive and the tacos enjoyable. Next time, I want to try one of the uni options. It’s a good addition to the area and there was definitely a lot of beach visitors stopping in for a meal.

  1. Looks like some interesting offerings!  Living in Southern California, it is not hard to find tacos so I love seeing places that offer handmade tortillas–especially ones made from corn ground in house.  The Tacolandia one piques my interest 😀
