Spain is notoriously averse to spice, so most of the tacos you’ll find in these parts taste like limp, greasy corn discs of blandness. Not so at Xuba Tacos. One bite of their blue corn tostada stacked with lemon-infused tuna and smothered in chipotle mayo will tell you why this fun, casual joint is the hottest Mexican in town. It’ll inspire you to immediately order the rest of the menu of unfussy tacos that highlight local produce, including the beer-battered sea bass with red cabbage, leek, and cilantro that you should zhuzh up with spicy salsa macha. Yes, the bar stools are uncomfortable and the harsh lighting feels like a dentist’s waiting room, but unlike most meals in town, this one won’t last for three hours, so for a quick, delicious lunch or dinner (that isn’t tapas), there’s nowhere better.
