District Taqueria

I took advantage of Restaurant Week to finally check out District Taqueria. This trendy little taqueria gives Wichitans an upscale taco joint that also offers a full bar filled with cervezas and top shelf tequilas. Located at Douglas and Washington, it’s a good place to get a quick dinner before hitting up a plethora of clubs, bars, and breweries all within walking distance.

The menu has been kept simple with around ten different tacos to choose from including pork carnitas, fish, and even lengua(beef tongue). Each taco comes all dressed up with various sauces and condiments and for $3 a piece they should. If you are looking for something other than tacos, then you probably shouldn’t go to a taqueria, but alas they have a salad, soup, and torta option.

The chips came and dips came out presented in a metal bucket and glass containers, which our boys got a kick out of. The thin chips had just been fried and were still quite hot.  I consider myself a salsa aficionado and District’s was not a disappointment. The salsa was a basic tomato based version, but you could certainly taste that it had been freshly made and there was plenty of cilantro in it, a necessity for good salsa. The guac was excellent as well. It was lighter on the salt than many places which allowed more of the lime and avocado flavors to emerge.

The quartered chicken came out on a platter with tortillas, sauces, and several condiments. The meat was tender and moist, as you would have expected with a whole cooked chicken instead of boneless pieces. The chicken was rubbed with a subtle chile paste, which I thought could have been a bit more flavorful. Nevertheless when combined with the sauces, slaw, and grilled onions it made some tasty tacos. We could have used a few more tortillas and maybe some cheese, but those were only minor complaints.

The tres leches cake provided a sweet finale to our meal. Serving it in a glass jar is the perfect way to eat tres leches, which is a vanilla cake that has three kinds of milk poured over it and then topped with whipped cream. The best part was scooping out all the soggy bits left on the bottom of the jar.

We had a pleasant experience at District, despite the service being a little slow. Fortunately the bucket of chips kept our kids occupied until dinner arrived.
