No Manches! Que Rico Taqueria in West Miami

I drive by No Manches! Que Rico Taqueria in West Miami a handful of times a week. The logo, which is a taco that resembles Frida Kahlo, has been calling out to me for a couple of years.

It turns out that when I went into the Burger Beast photo archives, I had food delivered from No Manches! years ago. After looking at the images and consulting with Marcela, we didn’t remember our thoughts on them.

I never posted about them online, so that says a lot.

We sat at a table by the bar where we could keep an eye on everything. I’m just kidding. It was early afternoon on a weekday, so there were only a few other customers.

Marcela orders a wine-based Margarita while I stick to old faithful, a glass bottle of Mexican Coca-Cola. Both drinks hit the spot.

We’re both giant elote fans, so when I saw the elote in Takis, I felt we needed to try it. In case you’re not familiar with the wonderful world of elotes, I’m talking about corn on the cob rolled in a mayo or crema, then sprinkled with chili powder, grated cheese, and lime.

No Manches! has a couple of these “exotic” elote flavors. This fella also came with a spicy nacho cheese drizzle, again, an odd choice. I took the first bite and passed it along to Marcela, who ate the rest of it.

She seemed to enjoy it. I’ll stick to the original from now on.

Next up were the nachos; this is Marcela‘s territory.

I did appreciate the shark fin chip topping the mountain of nachos, but that’s where it ended for me. I saw lettuce (which was not listed in the menu description), and I lost all interest.

Marcela, on the other hand, was all about it. Please don’t feel bad for me cause a queso fundido with chorizo was on the way.

Now It’s My Turn!

Queso Fundido is to me what nachos are to Marcela. She was so involved with her nachos that she couldn’t care less what was happening across the table from her.

What was happening was a whole bunch of cheese-pulling that had found warm corn tortillas to lay their heads in. The queso fundido came in a small cast iron skillet, and the crispy cheese all along the bottom may have been the best part!

The Quesataco (a quesadilla and taco hybrid) de Barbacoa (slow-cooked beef) was incredible. I don’t use that word often, but this is one of those instances where there is no better way to describe it.

Three quesatacos with chopped onions and cilantro come in an order. Your plate includes a side of consommé (flavored broth) for dipping.

I’m all about the consommé, but you need to be careful cause you could end up with a bunch of barbacoa at the bottom of the cup. And if you’re into slurping soups, this is when that skill set comes in handy.

We ordered the churros with ice cream, but they were too pricey and honestly not homemade, which was a total letdown. That’s okay, though, because the queso fundido and quesatacos made up for it.
