Two years later and we finally made it to Mas Tacos Por Favor in East Nashville. It was beginning to feel like a haunt that would never be confronted. You know the restaurants that people always talk about and you keep saying you’re gonna have to try it. Well, for two years this went on until this past Friday. I finally got the weekend off and if you know anything about the restaurant industry, you know that a weekend off is rare(sad face). But I managed to conquer this feat and the first thing on the itinerary was Mas Tacos Por Favor. I mean I hate to exaggerate and make it sound like this was the ‘best thing’ since sliced bread but it was delicious. I think what blew me away the most from a culinary standpoint is that everything on the menu is well executed. Although the menu is simplistic in nature and not the most authentic of Mexican cuisine. You can taste the passion and the attention to detail. That alone was enough to bring the wife and I back for round two the next day. We spent fifty dollars here in the course of two days and I don’t regret a penny of it. The only thing we didn’t care for is the combo of pineapple and cilantro in the fresca(fruit/flowers+water+sugar=agua fresca). Big whoop! The coffee with horchata(beverage made of ground rice/nuts) and the hibiscus lime agua fresca made up for it many times over.
I’m not going to go any further about the ingredients in the menu items or try to describe the ambiance just to persuade you to get here like yesteryear. When we left the first time all I wanted to do was tweet incessantly about it and eat three more ears of elote(corn). Just go already, and order one of everything, don’t forget two bowls of the chicken pozole and a chorizo brunch taco for me. Thanks!
The staff was nice enough to let me grab a snap of them. The service in East Nashville isn’t always as friendly as I would like. You’ve heard it all before hipster..blah..blah..blek! Whatever, the kids at Mas Tacos are swanky, friendly and seem to love what they do. That’s all that matters. So the next time the line at The Pharmacy is out of control dot-com, head on over to Mas Tacos Por Favor, but check the hours they close early during the weekdays.
There is no website so you have to scurry over to the facebook page to get the 411 or follow them on twitter.
