El Herradero Taqueria is on 2330 Arden Way, Sacramento. El Herradero Taqueria is a little adobe colored building with green awnings that you has probably passed by a thousand times on Arden, but never gave it much notice. Walking up you’ll notice the quaint patio seating, but inside you’ll notice the art work by local artists, and the pain staking detail put into the upholstery, paint, and every other eye catching piece of décor. It’s homely and warm environment, encouraging you to come in and enjoy yourself.
It’s been open less than a year, but they already have a loyal customer base. The signature dishes are Taco’s, fajitas, and burritos. But it’s the choices involved, the basics such as pescado, camaron, y carnitas (fish, shrimp, and pork), to some choices that most Americans aren’t used to like lengua and cabeza (tongue and head).
The shrimp taco, which can be grilled regular, spicy, or with garlic, is served with sour cream, chopped cabbage, Spanish rice, and when made with spicy shrimp packs quite a punch. The shredded pork taco is served with salsa, beans, cilantro, and has the best shredded pork.
