In the mood for fresh and affordable Mexican cuisine brimming with authentic south-of-the-border flavor?

Look no further than Placerville’s Las Goteras Taqueria, a place where the dishes are so delicious you’d swear they were made with love in abuelita’s kitchen. The restaurant’s ample seating, pleasant décor and large, Main Street-facing windows make it an ideal spot for lunch with a side of people watching. The menu boasts a wide variety of tacos, burritos and combination plates (breakfast offerings, too), but my go-to order is the Carnitas Quesadilla. Crispy, seasoned-to-perfection pork and melted cheese meet between not one, but two warm tortillas, a slightly unconventional but tasty touch that makes this a silverware-required meal. Generous sides of guacamole and salsa fresca provide a bright dose of natural spice while cool sour cream rounds out a plate that looks as good as it tastes. I was in a bit of a hurry the last time I stopped by to satisfy a craving, but the efficient and friendly staff served up my favorite in a matter of minutos, leaving my stomach and schedule equally satisfied. Las Goteras Taqueria, 423 Main Street, Placerville. 530-622-2644.
