District Taco, Arlington, VA

(See the January 30th, 2011 Review here.)

I fared less than well for a simple breakfast at District Taco in December, so decided to give it another try.

This time around, I got two Basic Tacos ($2.25), but got them wrapped in corn tortillas which made an improvement in texture. As before, I got them with the basic fillings: eggs, cheese, and potatoes, and then added my own sauces. And as before, they were terribly bland without sauce, not having much flavor at all, not even enough salt. Unless they change the seasoning, I would advise maxing out on toppings with their breakfast tacos.

Better, however, was the Huevos Rancheros ($7), which is two eggs over hard (!), rice beans, cheese, sour cream, and Mayan (?) salsa, served atop a flour tortilla. This dish (ordered as carryout) was extremely large and had flavor (perhaps from the Mayan salsa), but was still vastly improved upon when I dumped a bunch of hot sauce on top and mixed it all together. Unless you have a huge appetite, this dish alone is more than you’ll need for breakfast. It’s not a great version of huevos rancheros by any means, but it’s filling, it’s the best breakfast item I’ve had here, and it’s a good value for the money.
