Taqueria Juquilita is one of my favorite places in Ottumwa for lunch. In the past I’ve enjoyed the chile relleno plate and the chorizo burrito. On this recent visit I opted for the latter, washed down with a cool bottle of Jarritos Toronja (grapefruit) soda.
Sadly the chips and salsa served up were sub-par. The store-bought tortilla strips being a pile of shards while the salsa lacked any heat and tasted eerily of chicken stock.
Fortunately our burritos – two chicken, a lengua, and a chorizo – were excellent along with the green and red condiment salsas. Slices of radish along with the grilled onion and jalapeño were a nice garnish.
