I have been to Milagros near Viktualienmarkt a couple of times (I’m guessing the owner is the same), and to be honest I wasn’t really feelin’ it (although I have several friends who love it.) So I kept expectations to a minimum.
One thing I appreciated before even eating anything is that they made a real effort with the design of the space. I have been composing a ranty post about what a wasteland Zweibrückenstr. is.
A prime stretch of the city cluttered mostly with establishments wholly lacking in imagination! (do we really need another discount bakery? crappy Chinese restaurant, or Döner place?)
La Milagro Taqueria has broken the cycle of boring chains with a unique, inviting and thoughtful space.
On to the food.
I didn’t want to overwhelm myself, so I started with something simple: two Pork Pibil soft tacos. One with salsa, one without.
Yep, this was a proper taco, alright. Nicely flavored pork with pickled onions. I preferred it with the salsa which was fresh and tasty. I sat, appreciating the scenery and letting the mix of flavors that remind me of my Californian roots wash down my gullet.
I can’t wait to go back for another round, and I encourage you to do so too. We need to encourage these kinds of businesses by helping them thrive!
