This Arcadia eatery, found at the north end of 40th Street’s restaurant row, is a rare dinner-only taco type of place (or close to that; it doesn’t open until 3 p.m.). CRUjiente Tacos Chef Richard Hinojosa likes to get regional with his menu — dishes might be inspired by Maine, Korean, or Polynesian cuisine. Tacos arrive heavy with lamb, beef, pork, and potato. All good stuff, but we suggest you opt for the signature Tacos De La Calle, specialty tacos loaded with Korean fried chicken, duck breast, or garlic roasted mushrooms. All arrive looking just as good as that sounds. These tacos have been crowned grand champion of the Arizona Taco Festival — twice. Visitors will find similar creativity in house cocktails like the Pocket Full of Shells, Swipe Right, and Japanknees Bees.
