Rifle hawaiian shirt
I hadn’t been inside Yellow Door Taqueria for well over a year when I went to pick up takeout the other day, and seeing the intimate, dimly lit space — the cheerful chili pepper lights not quite offsetting the harsh reality of see-through dividers at the bar — made me realize how much I’d missed it. Back when we used to leave the house, it was our go-to spot for tasty tacos and inventive cocktails, and the occasional late-night drink on the way home from somewhere else. We have been ordering from here throughout the pandemic, and since the delivery services wouldn’t bring the jalapeno margarita mix at the top of my wish list to me, I went to it.
At home, we dove into an assortment of tacos: chili duck with vanilla plantain puree and pickled red onions, fried fish with grilled pineapple salsa, steak with oaxaca cheese, and — because there is no kids’ menu — chicken tinga hold the lettuce, radish, avocado, and crema for our 5-year-old (who still refused to eat it). They were out of pozole, so we tried the poblano tamales, along with porky refried beans and my favorite menu item: grilled corn topped with cotija cheese, chipotle aioli, lime, and smoked paprika. The jalapeno margarita mix didn’t disappoint, and even came with dehydrated limes and chiles to float on top. It was the perfect pick-me-up for a Wednesday night in February, nearly a year in.
