Little Conejo Norte – Ridgefield, WA
Nestled within the Carts by the Park food truck pod in Ridgefield, WA, Little Conejo Norte, aptly dubbed the “burrito trailer,” is an undisputed gem for lovers of authentic Oaxacan-style tacos and burritos. Our culinary journey at Little Conejo was nothing short of exceptional. We started with the special taco—a crispy, deep-fried jalapeño stuffed with a delectable combination of potato and cotija cheese, all nestled in a vibrant blue shell and drizzled with a divine cream sauce. It was nothing short of amazing! The mushroom taco, adorned with toasted parmesan and mushroom, delivered a delightful savory experience. But the star of the show was undoubtedly the beef birria burrito, bursting with flavor, and the comforting bean and cheese burrito, boasting a delightful toasted cheese surprise inside. To complement these culinary delights, we savored their salsa and chips, a perfect blend of flavors that managed to strike the right balance of spice. If you’re in Ridgefield, Little Conejo Norte is a must-visit, and, like us, you’ll find yourself planning a return visit without hesitation.
