Day 14: Hi, my name is Jackie and I am addicted to Senor Taco.

You know you have a problem when:

  • You and the owner are friends, are on a first name basis, and you know where her kids go to school.
  • The staff all know you and your order. It’s like Starbucks, but better.
  • You’re the mayor on Foursquare and can hold it down for over 8 months. Word.
  • All your co-workers and friends know where to take you for your birthday. 6 years and counting….
  • Make your road trip plans to Portland around a dinner stop at Senor Taco. Who cares about rush hour traffic?
Senor Taco. The best place on earth.

Senor Taco. The best place on earth.

I look purely Asian but don’t be fooled. This pale, round face is Japanese, Chinese, Hawaiian, and German. But, seriously most think I’m part Mexican. Secretly, I wish I was too.  I’m pretty sure it’s because of my obsession…ahem…I mean, love for all things that go with salsa and guacamole. I crave fresh tacos, homemade salsa and roasted jalapenos like the Seahawks crave a Super Bowl Victory. Whoops. Was that too soon????

Ask Kyle. If I’m given an option to choose an eatery, it’s bound to be Mexican. Luckily, God knew a thing or two about keeping me motivated at work. I’m 5 minutes away from the best taco shop, Senor Taco. It beats any taco truck I’ve been too and let’s be honest the salted jalapenos make my mouth water just thinking about it.

Senor Taco, Chicken Tacos

My favorite: 4 chicken tacos….

Welcome home visits from our Kiwi friends.

The place for welcome home visits from our Kiwi friends.

It’s the best place for lunch meetings, grab and go, celebrations, birthdays, engagements, new jobs, old jobs, visitors from out of town, and basically your everyday lunch. If I had my way, this affordable taco joint would be a 2 minute walk from my house; minus the fact that I would never-ever-ever-ever move to Federal Way. I just need to figure out how to get the owners to open up shop in Seattle and show those taco trucks who’s boss.
