Review #2 – Los Compadres MX

Posted: September 5, 2012 in Food

The Joint: Los Compadres MX
Date: August 24, 2011, 6:00pm
Location Spotted: 8th Ave 2nd St SW
Type of Food: Mexican
Food of Choice: Taco Trio,one each of  beef and potato, chicken and pulled pork with onions and parsley. Each served with their own secret salsa.


I’m just getting off work, after getting an e-mail that the problem at work is solved!  Yes!  Alas, I bump into the Los Compadres food truck! This was perfect as I was craving some soft shell tacos. I order the Taco Trio to try a bit of everything. Let’s start with beef. The mixture of the beef, potatos and spicy salsa worked well together. I found the potato to be a good substitute for lettuce as this kept the taco piping hot. Next up is the chicken. It was really nice with the milder salsa, the kick was still enough to keep this taco flavorful. Last but not least is the pulled pork with onions and parsley. The parsley and onions gave the pulled pork a whole new life, and it complimented it’s salsa well as this one had more tomato. One thing about eating this one last is that the taco shell had soaked up the juices and ripped as I was trying to eat it. But all in all it was a good taco. Food for thought is next time try the Compadres combos that also come with Churros. Overall, I thought the food was pretty authentic and full of flavor, I give this joint a 8.5/10. :D

Review #1 – Alley Burger

Posted: September 4, 2012 in Food

The Joint: Alley Burger
Date: August 22, 2011,  5:45pm
Location Spotted: 6th Ave 2nd St SW
Type of Food: Burgers and Fries
Food of Choice: Original Alley Burger (Spragg Farm’s Pork and Roasted Garlic Sausage Patty with Quebec Cheese Curds and Piri Piri Aioli) and Fries with Chipotle Bite seasoning


After waiting over an hour…I finally get my food! The excitement builds as I unwrap the aluminum foil and smell the aromas of pork, garlic, cheese and the Piri Piri Aioli. As I take the first bite I can taste combination all the flavors working together and the smoothness of the melted cheese! All this is held in a nice soft bun which gathered the heat of the patty. All in all the patty was full of flavor with the roasted garlic standing out. One thing about the burger was it was a bit overcooked and dry. Now, on to the fries. These are skin on fries, and you get to choose your seasoning for example truffle salt and pepper and sea salt. I went for the Chipotle Bite because I felt it would compliment the Piri Piri well. It sure did, the seasoning was very similar to Cajun spice and worked well with the flavors of the Aioli. The fries were alright, again a bit dry, and slightly chewy. Though I have to say the seasoning went very well with the fries. Overall, it was an alright burger and fries, my only complain is both the burger and fries were just a bit dry. Thus, I give this joint a 7.5/10. :D
