El Pueblo
Jaime Aguilar and his sister-in-law Mary Solorio prepare Mexican food with fresh ingredients at Tacos Y Tortas El Pueblo in East Wenatchee.

As a 17-year-old street vendor in Mexico, Jaime Aguilar dreamed of one day running his very own restaurant. More than two decades later, his dream has come true.

Three months ago, Aguilar, 39, and his wife Maria opened Tacos Y Tortas El Pueblo, a bright and comfortable East Wenatchee restaurant that specializes in the 3 Ts — tacos, tortas and tostadas.

“Everything’s made with fresh ingredients,” said Mary Solorio, Aguilar’s sister-in-law and do-it-all employee. “Fresh tomatoes in the salsa, fresh vegetables on the tortas, handmade hot sauce that gives it just the right amount of spice. Even the beans are cooked from scratch.”

Aguilar said he uses the traditional ingredients and recipes from his home state of Michoacan. All three of the Ts are piled high with the customer’s choice of meats, veggies and sauces. Menudo served with homemade tortillas is available on Saturdays.

“It makes me happy to know I’m pleasing customers with good food,” said Aguilar. “It makes me happy, too, to have a restaurant of our own.”

Details: Tacos Y Tortas El Pueblo, 936 Valley Mall Parkway, East Wenatchee. Phone 888-7262.
