Tacqueria La Placita, Hyattsville, MD
The menu at Tacqueria La Placita in Hyattsville, MD is funny. For some reason they chose to have pictures of every taco they make, but considering the size of the menu, every picture could basically be the same.
However, their tacos are some of the best I've had in the MD/DC/VA area. I ordered the pig cheek, pig ear, and lamb barbacoa tacos for lunch one afternoon. Because of the World Cup, the place was packed.
The meats were served on seared corn tortillas, and came with a green and red sauce as well as a side of spicy pickled onions and carrots.
There was a cart making Raspados, Mexican snow cones.
I ordered one with mango and strawberry, and dried fruit in between- perfect for the hot day
