jaco taco

18. Jaco Taco

Finally, we tried the vegetarian Baco Taco (which earned a ‘star’ on the menu as the restaurant’s own favorite).

03/29/2018

17. El Vez

The shrimp were large, slightly spicy and still steaming when they arrived at our table on homemade (!) corn tortillas.

03/28/2018

los taquitos de pueblo

16. Los Taquitos De Puebla

Looking at the menu, I felt like I should be sitting next to Andrew Zimmern on “Bizarre Foods.”

My favorite, actually, was Teresa’s take on Carnitas, a standard taco of braised pork, onion, salsa verde and cilantro.

03/26/2018

la veracruzana

14. Taqueria La Veracruzana

The Camarron (shrimp) Tacos were three for $10.

03/25/2018

taco mar

13. Taco Mar

The Chicken Taco was the best choice, with the breast meat cut right off a chicken spinning on a rotisserie.

03/24/2018

mole pablano

12. Mole Poblano

We also enjoyed the Pastor, a tender citrusy pork taco with diced onion and bits of pineapple.

03/23/2018

el comalita taqueria

11. El Comalito Mexican Taqueria

Thumbs up to the Tinga-Tinga Taco (pulled chicken in a chipotle-tomato sauce) and the Al Pastor (pork with diced pineapple).

03/22/2018

They’ve got 10 varieties of tacos on the menu, including sesame tuna, cauliflower and blackened salmon.

03/19/2018

7. La Peña Mexicana Taqueria

Tacos are just $2.25 each, so you can wind up with a delicious, satisfying meal for less than $10.

03/18/2018

6. District Taco

For $3, the menu offered Al Pastor — carved rotisserie pork, marinated with Guajillo chili and served with chopped pineapple.

03/17/2018

5. Mission Taqueria

The Fried Mahi Mahi (three for $15) with jalapeno mayo and pickled cabbage was among the yummiest I’ve had so far in the food hunt.

03/16/2018

4. Tlaxkalli Mexican Tortilleria & Taqueria

We enjoyed the Tinga, which is diced chicken in a chipotle sauce.

03/15/2018

Xolo Tacos

3. XOLO Tacos

Don’t be surprised if it ends up in my “Clash of the Tacos” finals in May.

03/14/2018

Cantina Laredo

2. Cantina Laredo

The Barbacoas featured certified Angus beef, which was tasty, but tougher than expected.

03/13/2018
