Shreveport-Bossier’s international food scene has seen explosive growth in recent years. The arrival of taquerias, in particular, has been a welcome addition to the landscape of international cuisines available to local food lovers. While taquerias aren’t for everyone – they’re usually tiny, and are often located inside of a retail space – the food they serve is often fresh, authentic and incredibly cheap.
I’ve recently come to appreciate the Sin Fronteras taquerias in Haughton and Shreveport. They’re off the beaten path and a little hard to find, but definitely worth seeking out.
Two menu items offered at the Shreveport location of Sin Fronteras (2487 Summer Grove Drive) are especially noteworthy. Their gorditas (pictured above) are messy, crispy little sandwiches consisting of spicy, flavorful meat (your choice of beef fajita, chicken, fried pork, pulled pork, tripe or marinated pork), cilantro, onions, queso fresco and a thin layer of beans sandwiched between two hot-off-the-griddle, un-flattened corn tortillas. The slightly chewy, slightly crispy texture of the masa corn pancakes make these little sandwiches spectacular. At $2.49 apiece, a great lunch consisting of two gorditas can be had for $5. Both locations of Sin Fronteras bring two house-made salsas to the table with every order. Have fun with the green salsa, but be careful with the red one – it may be the hottest condiment in Shreveport-Bossier.
Another item that I’m excited about trying at Sin Fronteras #2 is the pupusa, a Salvadoran dish consisting of a thick homemade tortilla stuffed with all kinds of good stuff. Pupusas are only served at Sin Fronteras’ Shreveport location on Saturdays and Sundays. As far as I know, these are the only pupusas in Shreveport-Bossier. I’ve not yet tried them, but am looking forward to doing so as soon as possible.
Good tip. Went by today and for about $20 got a sampling of tacos, pupusas, gorditas, and quesadilla. More than two could eat. Folks were very friendly, and the food was good. That red sauce really is hot.
I live right around the corner from the Shreveport Sin Fronteras and eat from there around twice a week. Seriously the best tacos I’ve ever had. Lathered on the silky green sauce, lightly sprinkle the red, and go for the full cilantro and chopped onion additions.
Oh man, now I’m hungry! Thanks for commenting, Johnny. I want to go there one Sunday and have papusas. Haven’t seen those at many places around town!
