“Tacos Varios El Pichi” in Tijuana serves big tacos but with little flavor

Chef Danny tried a stuffed pepper taco and a milanesa taco

On this episode of Una Mordida Tacos Tijuana, our host Chef Danny Betancourt went to “Tacos Varios El Pichi” located at Prolongación Águila Azteca, Fracc. El Águila. On this occasion, he tried two tacos: a milanesa taco priced at $1.66 dollars ($30 pesos) and a stuffed pepper taco priced at $2.22 dollars ($40 pesos).

Stuffed Pepper Taco

This taco has stuffed pepper, beans, rice, green salsa with chicharron, and is served on two corn tortillas. Firstly, Chef Danny highlighted the great size of the stuffed pepper, which completely covered both tortillas.

When he tried it, Chef Danny had to take a second bite to give his verdict, as he claimed that the taco was missing a lot of flavor. Though the beans had an ideal pasty consistency, their flavor was very light. The pepper was ideally cooked and had a soft texture. However, the cheese, the tortillas, and the batter were lacking in flavor. This is why this taco gets a rating of 6.5.

Price: $2.22 dollars ($40 pesos)

Milanesa Taco

This taco has beef milanesa, beans, rice, pickled purple onion, and is served on two corn tortillas. Just like the previous taco, its great size was the most important thing to highlight as an entire beefsteak was used for this dish.

Though the meat had a good flavor, this taco was quite dry, to the point that one would need soda to swallow it. The beans and tortillas were also lacking in flavor. In addition, Chef Danny said that if the onion had been pickled more or if it was sourer, its flavor would have been intensified. This is why this taco gets a rating of 7.0.

Price: $1.66 dollars ($30 pesos)
