A Round-Up of Taquerias to Drool Over


With both Cinco de Mayo and the Gourmet Latino Festival on the horizon, Metromix has added to the festivities with a round-up of their favorite take-out taquerias. All of the usual suspects are here –Tehuitzingo, Pinche, Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos, Calexico Carne Asada, Dos Toros — but one wonders why Tortilleria Nixtamal didn’t make the list, given that it’s the only restaurant in the city that grinds its own nixtamal to make fresh masa for its tortillas. Which, incidentally, are available through a take-out window. Still, it’s an appetizing round-up nonetheless, and may inspire unsightly displays of keyboard drool.
