Finally, Good Mexican
Malena's Tacos - This is the best kept secret in Ballard! Forget La Carta de Oaxaca, this place does Mexican better, bigger, and cheaper. Plus, it is completely lacking in pretension and you don't have to wait in line. We got the carne asada burritos to go and our first bites immediately took us back to the Mission in San Francisco and a little tacqueria called La Tacqueria where a similar level of burrito love can be found. No beans. No rice. Just a pile of perfect, tender, grilled steak smothered in fresh avocado and peppers. Deeelicious! Go now, before everyone knows about it, and you can't find a table.
