Daily Dining News: Taqueria Jalisco, Restaurant Thir13en, Pita Kitchen

Taqueria Jalisco is the place you pass on the left on 16th St. as you head towards Arden. I've tried it a few times and thought it was solid. I grew up eating a lot of Mexican food in East Los Angeles. It's 3 star rating on Yelp is appropriate.

Sac Bee restaurant reviewer Blair Anthony Robertson is a little more enthusiastic take on the food.

Taqueria Jalisco is Daniel Flores' pride and joy, and it has been that way since he took over the business from his mother in 1996, turning an unassuming joint into something that deserves to be a local treasure.

He honed the food, obsessed over the salsas and, with a core of longtime employees, mastered the art of extraordinary personal service.

Along the way, Flores, 43, became one of the great unsung heroes of the Sacramento restaurant scene.

First Bite: Restaurant Thir13en - Chef Adam Pechal’s newest venture, Restaurant Thir13en, is now open for business. Located in the Sterling Hotel at 13th and H Streets in downtown Sacramento, Thir13en is the second restaurant for Pechal, who also owns and operates (with partners Karl and Ulrike Petersen) Tuli Bistro on S Street in midtown.

Counter Culture: Scallop appetizers are a treat at the Terrace -  My lunch pal and I found a perfect rendition of scallops when we ordered the appetizer plate of the bivalve marine mollusks at the Terrace restaurant at Town & Country Village. There, chef Michael Powers and his wife, co-owner Margo Powers, have put together a unique menu of specialty dishes that includes creative interpretations of jambalaya, pulled pork and salmon BLT. (The blueberry pancakes with link sausages are great, too.) Allen Pierleoni in the Sac Bee.

Pita Kitchen: Bread to win - In the hands of the Pita Kitchen it is warm, spongy, light, fragrant and disappears quickly into the mouth of daughter Katie, who pronounces it first “soooo good” and then offers her highest praise: “epic.” Take a six-pack home for $1.95. Greg Lucas in Sac News & Review. 

Regular food truck gathering kicks off - A weekly gathering of food trucks will kick off Thursday at Tognotti’s Auto World as Mini Burger Truck, Mama Kim on the Go and Drewski’s Hot Rod Kitchen hold the first event organized by the fledgling Sacramento Food Truck Alliance. Brandon Darnell in Sac Press. 

First Truck Alliance Roundup - The crowd was manageable, with the longest wait being for Miniburger. It took about 30 mins to get to the order window and then another 15 to receive the food. Certainly much better than 3 hours experienced at SactoMoFo. Ms Munchie.

Star Ginger Now Open Sundays - Fans of Star Ginger, rejoice. The popular eatery on the corner of Folsom and Alhambra is now open on Sundays for lunch and dinner. Elena M. Macaluso in Sac Mag.
