I first had potato tacos (Spanish: tacos de papa) at a small hole-in-the-wall taqueria in East Los Angeles. My first reaction was, "Potato taco?! Never heard of that!" but my friend insisted I try one. I took a bite and the savory deliciousness just exploded in my mouth. Since then, I've been looking for potato tacos, but you know what? They are hard to find. I haven't found them in San Francisco yet! So, I simply took matters into my own hands and learned to make my own.
