Beef tacos two ways @ Grand Electric

So, we’re hanging out at Grand Electric, this funky little taco joint deep in the heart of Parkdale. Man, this place has everything: fish tacos, shrimp tacos, chicken tacos, carnitas tacos…even cauliflower tacos, for some strange reason. But when I saw they were serving up not one, but two types of beef tacos, I was all like “Uno dos tres, quatro cinco, cinco seis,” white guy!

So, we’re starting off with the beef cheek, piled with onions, cilantro and a spicy serrano chile salsa. Dude, these tacos are loco en la cabeza, homes! Maybe not as loco as la cabeza at Seven Lives, but there’s no shame in being the second-best beef cheek taco in this city, right?

But then they kick it up a notch with la costilla, beef short rib tacos. The meat is perfectly cubed, with a nice tenderness, and you’ve got pretty much the same toppings, cept I added some chipotle sauce to this one cuz dude, I would eat that off a sombrero, bro!!!
