Ed. note: We’ve had reports from a couple of sources that Taqueria Mi Mexico has closed! Anyone have any details?! 🙁
Today for lunch we headed from Oakland into Squirrel Hill to Taqueria Mi Mexico. It’s a small, unassuming place on Murray Avenue that is sparsely decorated, but you’re here to eat the authentic Mexican food. Our server brought us a small tray of homemade tortillas for starters. The tortillas were accompanied by 2 salsas and a bowl of jalapeno peppers. I especially loved the green salsa.
I ordered the carne torta. The torta is like a sandwich, with the bread being flat and round. The sandwich was overflowing with pork, jalapeno, avocado, lettuce and tomato. My friend ordered some tacos which caught her by surprise of how they were served. These aren’t Taco Bell tacos! These tacos are very small, served on double soft tortillas with your choice of fillings. The presentation of the tacos was very nice, with wedges of lime and cilantro. One of my friends also had an Jarritos, which I suppose is the flavorful equivelant of American sodas, except with a fruity twist.
I should also mention how inexpensive the food is here. My torta was $5.95 and the tacos were a $1.50 each. None of us left this place hungry either. I am very glad to see another authentic ethnic restaurant open it’s doors in Pittsburgh. I should also mention that also serve Mexican breakfast items and I’ll be sure to try that next time I’m there!
Taqueria Mi Mexico is open 11am to 9pm daily, and is located at 2109 Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill.
