AMAZING
1st KUROBUTA AL PASTOR TACOS
El Mero Mero | Cocina Mexicana, Singapore
“Spit-roasted Pork Collar, Chipotle and Guacamole Salsa, Coriander, Onion, Tortilla.” These tacos were next level. Quite possibly the best al pastor I have ever had. 😋
2nd MAINE LOBSTER TACO
Puesto At The Headquarters, San Diego
black beans, crispy onions, avocado, crema de cilantro, jalapeño pico
3rd TACO FLIGHT
Galaxy Taco, San Diego
Got the taco special and their Baja fried fish. So friggin’ good! I seriously considered returning for dinner. 🤤🤤🤤
4th BAJA FRIED FISH TACO
Galaxy Taco, San Diego
chile lime crema, avocado mousse, cabbage, pico de gallo 🤤🤤🤤
5th SURF & TURF TACO
Tacos el Cabron, San Diego
Spicy Shrimp & Steak. I devoured this like a savage 🤤
6th CHICKEN PASTOR
Barrio by Mex Out, Singapore
Corn tortilla, Adobo Sauce, Avocado Crema, Pineapple Salsa It was an excellent taco. My only beef with the place is that the servings are tiny and this would still be pricey (I guess by American standards) for a taco if it were normally sized.
REALLY GOOD
7th MILK STREET’S TACOS AL PASTOR
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Happy National Taco Day! These did not disappoint!
8th SOFT TACOS
Guzman y Gomez, Singapore
Spicy chicken and barramundi.
9th TACOS EN PROGRESO
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Tortilla press + masa harina = fresh corn tortillas!
10th CHILI-RUBBED HALIBUT TACO WITH GRILLED MANGO SALSA
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Took a while to fire up the charcoal grill, yet so bueno!
12th SLAB-BACON TACOS WITH BURNED-SCALLION CREMA & PINEAPPLE SALSA
Soots Cook Nook, Private
🌮🌮 in the shadow of corona just because... I quote the wit who asked us to “imagine if you will a world where cinco de mayo falls on taco Tuesday only to be ruined by a virus named after a Mexican beer,” (although the naming origin part is probably untrue).
13th FISHCAKE TACO WITH MANGO, LIME AND CUMIN YOGHURT
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Yes, I made something new at home today. Again. Challenging myself to empty a third of the fridge by the end of the week and to eat a lil’ healthier. Prepping a day ahead helps. We’ll see how long I last…
14th MIX ‘N’ MATCH SIGNATURE STREET TACOS
La Puerta, San Diego
Top to bottom: Pollo Asado, Ranchero Shrimp & Pastor with Refried Beans, Rajas con Crema and Rice
15th TACO OF THE MONTH
Puesto At The Headquarters, San Diego
pork & beef, walnut sauce, pomegranate sauce. The spicy sauce reminded me a little of satay gravy but with minced beef and walnuts. Overall, an interesting combination that really worked.
16th FILET MIGNON TACO
Puesto At The Headquarters, San Diego
crispy melted cheese, avocado, spicy pistachio serrano. Winner: Tacolandia "Best Taco.” *although god knows when?
17th TACO SPECIAL
Galaxy Taco, San Diego
pork adobado, caramelized onions, pineapple habanero
18th AZTECA TACO & BAJA SMOKED MARLIN TACO
El Comal, San Diego
AZTECA TACO: Fresh pressed tortilla, carne asada, grilled cactus, pico de gallo guacamole and cotija cheese 👌 BAJA SMOKED MARLIN: Smoked and shredded marlin, cooked on the comal with garlic, onions, celery, bell pepper and tomato, served on a tortilla with melted cheese 👌👌👌 These are some solid tortillas. They were thick, chewy and flavorful. Apparently they grill them in a cast-iron comal griddle.
19th SONORA TACO
The Taco Stand, San Diego
FLOUR TORTILLA, ANGUS STEAK (100% CERTIFIED ANGUS BEEF), MELTED CHEESE, BEANS, GUACAMOLE, ONIONS, CILANTRO & SALSA
21st TACOS
Pancheros Mexican Grill, Champaign
Two tacos on freshly pressed, soft flour tortillas, one with slow roasted seasoned pork carnitas and the other with fresh cut, marinated grilled steak. Overfilled with cilantro & lime rice, pinto beans, queso, pico de gallo and roasted corn salsa. Got a side of their chimichurri to go with. I devoured these like a savage.
22nd SPICY PORK TACOS
Seoul Taco, Champaign
With Sesame Vinaigrette Salad Mix, Green Onion, crushed Sesame Seeds, Seoul Sauce, and a wedge of Lime 😋
23rd CHICKEN PASTOR TACO
Barrio by Mex Out, Singapore
Corn tortilla, Adobo Sauce, Avocado Crema, Pineapple Salsa
PRETTY GOOD
24th TACOS DE CARNITAS WITH SALSA VERDE
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Tacos De Carnitas with Salsa Verde Drier than preferred but pretty flavorful with input from onion, garlic, cinnamon & orange. Topped with onion, cilantro, salsa verde & queso cotija.
25th WAGYU VOLCAN TACOS
El Mero Mero | Cocina Mexicana, Singapore
“Kiriotoshi Cut, Burnt Cheese, Avocado & Molcajete Sauce, Crunchy Tortilla.” Good but no match for the Al Pastor.
26th CHILI LIME CHICKEN TACO WITH GRILLED PINEAPPLE SALSA
Soots Cook Nook, Private
It’s Tuesday, so why not? Tenderized these breasts to within half an inch, then marinated them in a homespun chili lime spice concoction before grilling along with pineapple, bell peppers, jalapeño and red onion for a sweet, smoky salsa. Whipped up a silky avocado crema to top it off. Despite all the prep work and time that went into this, I felt it was missing an element called queso.
27th BATTERED FISH TACOS
Oscars Mexican Seafood, San Diego
Skipped pain management for their 99 cent happy hour fish tacos. Served with Cabbage, Onion, Tomato, Cilantro
28th ATUN ADOBADO TACO
Oscars Mexican Seafood, San Diego
Tuna marinated in Adobo Rub Served with Diced Pineapple, Avocado, Onion, and Cilantro
29th SO. CAL FISH TACOS
Houlihan's, Champaign
Panko-breaded North Atlantic cod, chipotle mayo, napa cabbage, honey cumin dressing, sour cream. With a side of French fries.
30th CHIMICHURRI CHICKEN TACOS
Vatos Urban Tacos, Singapore
Vatos Spicy Chicken topped with a sweet and tangy chimichurri salsa, lettuce, cilantro lime cream & Mexican cheese. This was probably my favorite.
