Mi Tierra Restaurant & Taqueria in Des Moines, Iowa
Mi Tierra may have been the first place in Des Moines to really specialize in the Mexican Anotjitos. Its at least the first place I found in Des Moines to have its own dedicated antojitos menu. Their entree menu was interesting as well.
Location: 1100 E 14th St
Closed Since: I last visited in January of 2014. The building later held a Jamaican restaurant among others before it was razed in early 2017
Specialties: They served sopes, gorditas, tacos de canasta, and picaditas with fillings that changed regularly.
