Tacos Tumbras a Tomas in Grand Central Market [Los Angeles]


Tacos Tumbras a Tomas is in the Grand Central Market in LA. For the most part, I hate LA but I might move there for this market. This is definitely the best carnitas I’ve ever had. My lady claims the same and so do many Yelpers. One guy even states “By far the best Carnitas I have had in my life, US or Mexico.”

From Timeout: 5 Burro Café The owners of a 20-year-old Forest Hills Tex-Mex cantina open a sister location in Brooklyn, serving the same menu of tacos, fajitas and nachos. The bonus: a garden ideal for sipping the margaritas in the heat.

Papacito’s on Manhattan Ave. Greenpoint [Brooklyn]


For Cinco de Mayo, we went to Papacito’s in Greenpoint (999 Manhattan Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11222 – (718) 349-7292). I’ve been told it’s one of the best. Well, it’s pretty damn good. The tacos are bigger than usual. Three will leave you full. I like that each type of filling corresponds with it’s own toppings. I got to munch on the fish, chicken, and verde pork tacos. No going wrong with those. Tecates were $1!!

Taco Bell’s Pacific Shrimp Tacos

When I was a kid, Taco Bell was my favorite fast food place. Now that I’m educated, I don’t really eat there unless I’m drunk and I try to keep it vegetarian. However, Taco Bell now has a new offering, which I know will be disgusting, but I’m finding it hard to resist! wouldibuyitagain.com says it’s not good! Next time I’m in the suburbs (I can’t eat city ‘Bell) I may have to try. Review @ wouldibuyitagain.com

Loading Dock Taco Cart on Tillary St [Brooklyn]


I’ve noticed this weird loading dock creation while driving by on Tillary St. I just thought someone had put some Christmas lights on their loading dock – because it’s no place for a food cart! But The Brooklyn Paper informs me that this is god damn taco cart! Now, only if it weren’t impossible to get to on foot. I used to live on Tillary and Gold St. Literally dodging bullets on the way to the bodega back then, I hope I grab a taco, un-grazed!

The Loading Dock
170 Tillary St. between Flatbush Avenue and Gold Street
Tuesday-Sunday, 11 am-3 pm
Wednesday-Saturday, 6-10 pm.
Cash only.

Barrio Chino on Broome St. [Manhattan]


Barrio Chino at 253  Broome St. in the Lower East Side is quite good. The wait is long and the tables are tiny but the food is awesome. DO get the fish tacos for $8. DO also get the Jalapeño Margarita. DO NOT get the Habanero Margarita unless you think Phall Curry goes down like ice cream.

La Superior on Berry St. [Brooklyn]


Go to La Superior at 295 Berry St. Just stop reading this and go. Oh, and get the beef tongue taco – it’s not chewy, it’s like pork belly – but beefy. Just get it and shut up.
