Get Your Cecina Fix at Taqueria Kairos

This Garfield Ridge Mexican spot gives you a little taste of Guerrero.

Cecina packs a punch. Beloved in many Spanish-speaking regions and especially in the Mexican state of Guerrero, the dish consists of thin slices of intensely flavorful beef that’s been salted, air-dried, and griddled.

One of the best places in the city for cecina is Kairos, a perpetually bustling taqueria in Garfield Ridge. Though dried in a fridge—not under the Mexican sun, as in Guerrero—the beef there is succulent and delicious. You can order it as a platter ($13), with some guacamole on the side, or, better yet, as a taco. With cecina swaddled in tender made-to-order corn tortillas and enlivened with pico de gallo and a wedge of lime, the tacos are a steal at $2.25 a pop.
