On Sunday, August 14, Westword will host Tacolandia, a celebration of the city's street tacos in all their tortilla-wrapped glory. Join us at Sports Authority Field to enjoy unlimited samples from many of Denver's top taquerias, cantinas, Mexican restaurants and food trucks. Joining the fun will be Antojitos La Poblanita, bringing tastes of Puebla, Mexico, to the party.
Elizabel Urrietta and her sister started Antojitos La Poblanita three years ago, with the goal of bringing the food of their home town to Denver. Puebla has its own distinct styles of tacos and other small bites, and La Poblanita will be sharing an original taco Lulu (beef, potato, Oaxacan cheese and avocado on a large corn tortilla) as well as huaraches, memelas, and quesadillas filled with chicharrón and squash blossom.
