Reviews for Mawi NOLA

I've been wanting to try the birria tacos and I always feel I need to try more than one thing when going somewhere I greedily ordered the birria tacos and birria nachos. I called ahead of time and was told my order would be ready in 10 minutes. I arrived 8 minutes later and they were wrapping up my order.

I had an 18 minute drive home and didn't want to risk the food getting cold and soggy, so I ate in the parking lot lol! The birria nachos were definitely full review

This small restaurant was amazing! Limited seating due to it being a small restaurant. The space is tight so it is best to order take out during COVID-19. The food was amazing. I ordered the birria tacos with tres leches and two agua refrescas ( horchata and Pineapple-passion). The tacos were amazing, best I've had in NOLA. The horchata was great. Very milky. When I went, there was only one lady working but she was very kind and attentive.

Oh wow. I am not huge fan of corn tortillas, but these are amazing. The corn tortillas that I have tried taste like stiff, cardboard where you need to smother the wrap in sauce. The tortilla has a nice sweet corn flavor and if you toast it before serving, it has these nice crispy edges. Omg soo good! I have tried the Papusas, ceviche, salsa, and the Birria tacos. All of which was excellent.

The staff is also really friendly and the food is quick. I wonder if they full review
