Check out this cute new taco shop on NE Alberta. It’s stella!
We finished up Labor Day weekend, with some tacos. Specifically Stella Taco, a new little place that just opened on NE 30th & Alberta. It was good! We ordered a pile of tacos along with some chips and avocado, a couple horchatas (my favorite!).
We ordered at the counter and got our drinks right away. I was little annoyed that the chips didn’t come as fast. We had to wait for about 15 minutes… I was really hungry so that was a little frustrating. But the avocado was great. Mixed with some veggies, chopped up, then served in it’s own skin. I could have gone for a little more avocado, but that’s how I always feel when avocado is involved.
Then there’s the tacos. I was expecting a lot because they pretty much only serve tacos (no enchiladas or burritos here) but they fell just the tiniest bit short for me. The carnitas had a great flavor, really smokey but it was a little dry. The mole was nice and moist and yummy. The brisket was good, but it was topped with a really spicy relish, that was too much for me. There were a selection of salsas on the table… They might have helped with the dry meat, but didn’t think about it until afterwards.
It sounds like I didn’t like this place. I did! It’s just that I’ve been eating at a lot of fancy taco places lately that are setting the bar really high, like Mi Mero Mole. Plus, I did think the service was a little slow. But overall, we had a nice meal. The inside has a really cool modern mexican look that felt really fresh and fun. And I love their logo featured in a cool temporary tattoo. So if you’re on Alberta, give it a shot.
