Review: La Michoacana – Sherman

A few of you have walked into this Mexican grocery store and have bought their quality produce for a fraction of the price you can find tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, tropical fruit, and onions at traditional stores like Wal-Mart, Brookshires, Albertsons, and Kroger.

Maybe you have been a little more bold and ventured to the back and tried some of the seasoned meat, chicken, and even fish. Their seasoning is amazing and I now know their trick. A super simple marinate (Orange juice or pineapple juice and a hefty pour of “El Venado Fajita Sazon Rojo” or to Caucasians “Red Fajita Seasoning.”) Just place in a freezer bag with meat overnight.

But how many of you have tried the taco stand / taqueria?

La Michoacana Street Tacos are amazing!

It is not your traditional way to order at a restaurant. You first walk to the stand and look up… try to read the mostly Spanish menu. Grab a drink from the cooler, then walk to the cash register and remember your order… So you can pre-pay.  Walk the receipt back to the counter and grab a seat. I have yet to be disappointed. The food is delicious and the portions generally have me taking home a doggy bag.

Pre-Pay and walk your receipt over

I generally order the $5.99 Plate or the Street Tacos.  When ordering the plate, you get a pile of “meat of choice” and two sides. When getting fajita meat, I generally get rice and beans. They generally throw in fresh, hot tortillas, limes, onions, and cilantro. Walk to the salsa bar to top it off with many other items… Green sauce, red sauce, salsa, etc.

Many employees are NOT bi-lingual so sometimes you will need to point. This doesn’t frustrate me as it may some. I don’t know two languages either. A smile is cross-cultural and I get plenty of those from all the employees in the Sherman location.

You can order to-go, but there are about 8-10 booths and I enjoy eating, people watching, and savoring the culture.

If you haven’t tried eating here, hey, you live in Texas. Learning to step outside your comfort zone and learning some Spanish is expected of you. If you do go there, tell them I said HI and I’ll see them next week.
