Peached Tortilla

Ok help me out here! I was starving for tacos (#becauseAustin and my life). Just got off the plane at the Austin airport and @peachedtortilla was the first taco spotting. And I’m totally down for some fusion tacos (live the culinary creativity) but I honestly can’t remember what these beauties were…My taste buds are wanting to remember like a Korean pork and maybe a...

El Gabacho Taquería

********** Sep 02, 2021 Taco turf wars on an epic chilango-sized scale! We opted for the pastor and gringas from @taqueriaelgabacho this time right after the airport pick-up. #lapanzaesprimero obvio. Are you Team Gabacho? Or Team Pastorcito? Delicious just delicious! CDMX Boturini area is straight taco gold. ********** Feb 12, 2015 Next up...family-style mounds of...

Lagrange Churrascaria

Is it weird that my first taco al pastor negro was at a Brazilian churrasquería in CDMX?? Inspired by Mercurio in Monterrey from @netflix’s #TacoChronicles?? 🤷🏽‍♂️ But this was 🖤. Bring on the trompo negro made with recado negro — a Yucatán fave. Have you ever had al pastor negro?? When your friends from @academyforcreatingenterprise say “vamos”… you go! Gladly! 🤩...

La Gruta

********** Jul 24, 2021 Pork belly in manchamanteles mole with green “nopales” tortillas. I just love a good DIY taco situation… especially with some chiles toreados. 🔥🔥🔥 and this Aztec-cave-turned-restaurant at the #Teotihuacan pyramids @lagrutamx is the ideal place to immerse yourself in all things ancient including their pre-Hispanic menu with ant eggs, crickets...

House Of Corn Mexican Cuisine

************ Jun 26, 2021 De todo un poco. Chile relleno battleship taco and the trifecta of street tacos on corn tortillas they make from yellow, blue and red corn kernels at @houseofcornmc. Serious artisan props! ************ Dec 17, 2020 I have mad respect for any taco place that literally grinds their own corn to make the masa and then the tortillas. But what...

Guisados

********** Mar 29, 2021 The passion for the tortilla is REAL! ✌🏽🌽🌮 At @Guisados they are happily not messing around when it comes to the handmade corn tortillas and their masterfully crafted guisos stewed meats. I am powerless against their quesadilla with chorizo. And so was @showmetheravi when we met to film his episode of #Tacoincidence. Check out this clip from...

Descanso Mexican Restaurant

To the left, to the left. Everything from the pig in the taco to the left. Al pastor, chorizo verde, bacon, chicharrón...it was a lot of pig in a blue corn blanket. And we were not mad about it. A break from the norm at @descansorestaurant. #allthepig for all the taco convo you could ever imagine. Big taco things to come from @trent_on! Stay tuned OC (and beyond)! 🍍🌮...

Taco Land

Impromptu #tacoincidence at new kid on the block @tacoland.utah. The chef and owner both shared their passion for the taco and how they got started just two months ago. Huge props for launching a new biz in the heart of a pandemic. Takes some serious courage and conviction! And belief in how good your tacos are! 🌮😍 The stand outs for us were the wasatch brisket and...

Suerte

*********** Feb 16, 2021 Ok…seriously, the foundation of every taco is the tortilla. It can easily be “meh” but when it’s good it’s GOOOOOD! And @SuertaATX knows how to do it! Housemade masa had us all feeling really lucky — especially for a catch up with an amazing friend and former roommate and his boys. Legit grateful for chefs and taqueria owners that truly care...

Red Iguana Restaurant

Mole Monday. Is that a thing? Where do you go for great mole? I’m a big mole guy and always searching for the good stuff. Had high hopes for this mole poblano from Utah’s famous Red Iguana. Our apathetic service seemed to mirror my feelings about the food. Maybe it was an outlier? Longing for more than mediocre mole. Where do YOU go?! Search for the Perfect Taco...
