I wouldn’t classify myself as a foodie, but I do love to eat. Trying new restaurants is one of my favorite things to do. So, as I continue to eat and drink my way through Orange County, I thought I would start a new blog feature called “Best of OC”. Whether it is brunch, happy hour or an unbeatable view, I’ll be sharing my top picks right here!
Mexican, although not exactly healthy, is my favorite cuisine (I could literally eat it for every meal). So it’s probably no surprise that Taco Tuesday is the best day of the week in my book. Since moving to OC, I’ve been to quite a few spots, trying to find my new weekly go-to. And I think I’ve finally stumbled upon one that I can say is the best.
Located in Bella Terra shopping center right off the 405 in Huntington Beach, Solita is a gem to say the least. Taco Tuesday specials start at 3pm and go all night. They even have live music from 6-9pm!
Being the Mexican-food fanatic that I am, I love a good chips & salsa, and Solita does not disappoint. We ordered the Guacamole Solita to start, which is on special for $6 and served in a tortilla shell with mango and tomato chunks (YUM).
Next came the margaritas. For $6, you can choose between a House, Skinny or Frozen. They even have a Frozen flight with 7 available flavors for only $12! To me, you can’t go wrong with a classic, so I ordered the House, which came in a pint glass and gave me a pretty good buzz.
Now, onto the tacos, which are about $2-$3 each, served in pairs and DELICIOUS. My husband and I ordered the grilled and oak-roasted chicken, and I can honestly say they’re the best tacos I’ve had since moving to Orange County. And to top it all off, the service was great: attentive, fast and friendly.
If you’re looking for a great Taco Tuesday with amazing prices, ambiance and service, Solita is the answer. You’ll probably see me there!
