La Sirenita Restaurant Review

: This longtime Alberta Street eatery is one of the few non fast-food establishments where you can eat well for under $5. The authentic taqueria is a meat-eater's heaven with traditional taco fillings of cabeza and lengua, as well as goat, spicy sausage or steak picado for the adventurous. Vegetarians may try the cactus filling. Gargantuan burritos are a signature dish; tamales are properly encased in corn husks and robustly flavored. Carne asada fries are swamped with cheese, meat, guacamole and sour cream. Enhance your entrée selection with any of several choices at the salsa bar. The atmosphere is friendly for families and hipsters alike. The only drawback is that there are no margaritas to pair with the spicy fare, although kids always enjoy the sticky-sweet Jarritos sodas. The menu includes burgers and fries, too. A sibling taqueria is located in southeast Portland's Sellwood neighborhood.
