Eating on the Cheap: La Frida at Ensenada Street Food

Nothing on this menu costs over $7.50, so have at it.

Sub-70 degrees is Tucson soup weather, but you know what has your back regardless of weather digits? Cheesy birria tacos.

At food truck and restaurant Ensenada Street Food, they take their own twist with La Frida. The layers pile with a house-made corn tortilla, birria, another tortilla, melted mozzarella, more birria, and chopped white onion and cilantro. Don’t forget to take advantage of the salsa bar.

While you could technically pick it up like a taco, spare your shirt from the chile stains and use a knife and fork.

Although La Frida is already affordable at $3.75, you can get two with a small drink on Frida Friday for only $6.50. Furthermore, nothing on the menu costs over $7.50, so have at it.
