Tasty Tacos Near the Capitol – Taqueria Nacional is one of D.C.'s very few Mexican taco joints that excels at small street food-style tacos. They serve a variety of small tacos for very cheap (around $3 or $4), from beef to fish to cheese and chorizo. They usually offer specials of the day, like tostadas, as well as one American-inspired dish of the day (i.e. jambalaya). Their guacamole is one of the best I've had in the district, and their tres leches cake is to die for. I've tried an horchata from there as well - it had twinges of cinnamon but wasn't very flavorful. I do hear that their aguas frescas are better. If you're in the Capitol Hill area and are tired of the same old from Union Station, definitely take advantage of what Taqueria Nacional has to offer.
