El Rey Sampler Platter

I've previously written about my love for the authentic Mexican food at the El Rey del Sabor cart. Today, after passing the ridiculous line at Taim, I ventured over to El Rey and decided to make myself a sampler platter.

I don't think they have anything there that I don't like, but you can't really make a sampler platter out of tortas or huaraches (unless you don't plan to eat for days), so I ordered an assortment of my favorite snack-type items.

My combo plate consisted of one chicken tamale, one chicken pastelillo and one chicken taco. It was delicious (although just a bit oily - it soaked through the paper bag and all the napkins, thanks to the pastelillo, but I can't resist) and only cost $5.50 (taco was $2.50 and the others were $1.50 each). My favorite item of the 3 is still the taco, which they top with onions, cilantro and their awesome salsa verde, but I love having the opportunity to mix and match among the different menu items. If you haven't ever tried their tacos, you really should get there ASAP. So good.
