Dos Hermanos Market is a small Mexican grocery store on Ford Road (near Wayne Road) with a restaurant located inside. Their menu is larger than you’d expect from a place so small and according to our friend that recommended it (thanks Jen!) and the reviewers on Yelp, it’s fairly authentic. In addition to the usual tacos, burritos, enchiladas, chimichangas, and quesadillas, Dos Hermanos also offers tortas (Mexican sandwiches), flank steak, a number of seafood items and egg dishes. They’re open 7 days a week from 9am to 9pm and offer carry out.
We both ordered a glass of horchata to drink, which can include a number of ingredients, but in the USA it is usually comprised of rice, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. It was really good. It was a nice pairing of something cold, sweet, and creamy with the saltiness and spiciness of the food. They also had several other Mexican drinks available (including Mexican Coke with real sugar), but I don’t remember their names and they aren’t listed on the takeout menu. Sorry!
I ordered 3 different tacos with a side of refried beans, I should have only ordered two as I didn’t finish the beans or the last taco, but it was nice to try a bunch of different flavors. I ordered one al pastor (marinated roast pork), one carnitas (fried pork), and one chorizo (Mexican sausage, also made from PORK). They were simple tacos served on two soft corn tortillas and topped with onions and cilantro with a few lime wedges on the side. My favorite was the al pastor taco, in addition to the tenderness of the pork, it had great flavor with a bit of spice. The other two tacos were a bit one note.
Dave ordered the combination plate so he could try a little of everything. The combo included: a beef burrito, a cheese enchilada, a crunchy flour chicken taco, and a bean tostada. It was served with rice and beans. His favorites (and mine too, since I had a taste) were the cheese enchilada and the crunchy flour chicken taco. The cheese enchilada was really creamy and melted in your mouth. The shell of the taco was really delicious, it was crispy, light, and not greasy at all. The chicken was OK, but the crunchy flour taco shell was perfect. The burrito and tostada were just OK, nothing fancy.
I look forward to eating at Dos Hermanos again, but I’m not sure if I want to try something new (the pambazos, a type of Mexican sandwich sounds really good) or get cheese enchiladas and crunchy flour tacos, but I’ll definitely be ordering another glass of horchata.
