La Popular Taqueria, Port Adelaide

ADELAIDE | Housed inside an old computer repair shop, you’ll find La Popular Taqueria. It’s where Mexico City born marine biologist Daniella Guevara serves up some of the best tacos in Adelaide. The self taught cook moved to Australia in 2009, a ran Mexican home dinner pop-ups for several years before opening La Popular (named after her old Mexico City neighbourhood Sector Popular) in 2017 with co-owner Kor-jent Van Dijk. ⁣

Everything is made in-house and the tacos are as authentic as you’ll find outside of Mexico. To me they evoke memories enjoying tacos in Echo Park and Boyle Heights in Los Angeles.

Try my two favourites. The Yucatan-style cochinita (pulled pork) marinated in achiote paste, citrus, herbs and spices, and topped with pickled onion, and the cachete de res (beef cheek) braised with guajillo, pasilla and morita chillies. The Baja style fish taco is also a winner, and you can’t go wrong with a big glass of horchata and a shot of mezcal to wash it all down.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
