New Yorkers Will Never Get the
Perfect Taco Their Hearts Desire

Atlantic, by Alexander Abad-Santos

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/2/2013 10:35:06 AM

Here is the food world´s greatest mystery: New York City is the food capital of the country—if you spend enough time on the subway you can find any cuisine you want. So why is it so freaking impossible to find a great taco in this city? Especially since the city is reaching peak taco. And further: why do so many New Yorkers recommend such crappy tacos here? It just doesn´t make sense. The New York Times´s Pete Wells attempts to figure out that mystery and has, perhaps, given us the most complete and satisfying answer to date: the basic idea of

Comments:
I refuse to believe a perfect taco can be had in New York City. The best taco I ever ate was from a street vendor in Guadalajara. I´m with the author, nothing needed but good corn tortillas and meat (forget the cilantro, but hot sauce is essential).

I will not forget the cilantro. Love the cilantro.

Similarly, rarely can a good pizza be found outside of New York.

Best tacos I ever had came from a woman with a set up in a convenience store in San Antonio. Sausage, corn tortillas and salsa verde so good you could drink it. Next best were at a street fest in San Diego. Mesquite smoked wood grills for beef tacos. Fresh roasted salsa that was incredible. I like cilantro and lime, but no onions, cheese, sour cream, etc.

I live in Florida so I can´t get the best taco or the best pizza. First taco I ever had was on a trip out west 40 years ago, best pizza I ever had was in New York City.
Best ice cream in Massachusetts where the amount of cream is a matter of law as I understand it. Also, MA has best clam chowder. My Filipina daughter in law is so crazy about their claim chowder she ordered two (in scooped out bread bowls) and nearly burst.

OK, somebody mentioned pizza.

NYC has great pizza. New Haven, CT has the best pizza.

And a taco without cilantro is like a day without sunshine.

How would a New York food critic even recognize a perfect taco? Good tacos require ingredients most would turn up their noses at, like lard, entrails, tongue etc.

Cilantro is an acquired taste. I nearly starved to death one three weeks in Mexico because they put cilantro in everything! Ugh. Now I don´t make salsa fresca without lots of cilantro. Oh, and if you want the best taco you have to go to my sister in law´s house!

Many taco stands in NYC are run by Koreans. The one I used to go to had great guacamole.

Best Mex I ever had was on a side street in LA. A scary little hole in the wall that had big, bubbling pots of huge hunks of meat. That´s all it was, meat and flour tortilla. Amazing. But a little terrifying. I didn´t go back again.

There is a little cantina out in central-west Texas, by Mineral Wells I believe. It really is nothing more than someones house with the living room turned into a dining room and a curtain over the kitchen entrance. Nobody spoke english, but the menu had pictures cut out of a Taco Bell ad (I think, cause you could see the chihuahua next to the food)).

I pointed to the taco and said "dos" (in perfect spanish I must say). The girl scurried away and 5 minutes later came back with 2 (dos) taco´s on a cracked plate with a cold beer. THAT, was the best taco ever.

I´m not a taco fan - prefer chicken burrito. Burritoville had a Mystic Frisco Chicken Burrito that was "to die for."

When they closed - I was heartbroken. Chipotle just doesn´t do it for me like Burritoville did.

All you have to do to find a great taco is find a little run down restaurant with a name ending in "Bertos," like Albertos, or Robertos or Rolbertos.

A skillet
Some olive oil
Peppers of some sort ~ your choice
A can of kippered herring, sardines, anchovies, salmon, clams, crabmeat........ a protein!

Then, there´s the fresh WHITE CORN TORTILLA ~ the small ones.

Drop one in the hot oil. Turn over with spatula. Add the fish or other substance on one half the tortilla. Fold over the other half.

That looks like a taco already.

Turn once. That is a taco. Take out of hot oil. Add tomatoes, lettuce, cheese ~ whatever.

World´s finest fish taco San Diego style ~ actually Carlsbad style ~ Rubios wold die to have.

The best tacos I ever had were the ones we cooked on weekends for 10 or 12 of our children´s friends. Basic ground beef w/chili seasoning and marinated chicken. Shredded lettuce, chopped fresh tomatoes, guacamole, sautéed onions, lots of different cheeses, jalapeno peppers (for the hard core). No sour cream, don´t know when that became the thing, but both corn and flour tortillas. Cilantro? never heard of it until about 5 yrs. or so.

We could feed Cox´s Army on what we cooked on those weekends. How I miss that! But they´re continuing the tradition in their own families.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J – An Atlantic City casino is suing a big-time gambler, claiming he won $9.6 million in a card-cheating scheme in baccarat. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Phillip Ivey Jr., considered one of the best poker players in the world. The lawsuit alleges Ivey and an associate exploited a defect in cards made by a Kansas City manufacturer that enabled them to sort and arrange good cards in baccarat. The technique gave him an unfair advantage on four occasions between April and October 2012, the casino asserted in its lawsuit. The

Microsoft finally killed off support for Windows XP this week, but the company decided to wax nostalgic about one of the most memorable parts of the operating system—that serene, hilly landscape that serves as the default XP desktop background. In a video released on the day the tech company officially ended support for the 13-year-old software, Microsoft interviewed the man who took the photograph, called “Bliss.” Charles O’Rear, a former National Geographic photographer, said he was driving through Napa Valley, just north of San Francisco, when he decided to stop and snap a photo of the idyllic countryside (on an

Brussels- Until recently, members of the Russian delegation to NATO were free to roam at will about the Western alliance´s headquarters here on the outskirts of the Belgian capital. The Russians had an awkward habit of listening intently to others´ conversations at the cafeteria, yet their presence was tolerated in the name of dialogue. Not anymore. In response to Vladimir Putin´s annexation of Crimea, NATO earlier this month suspended all practical cooperation with Moscow. Now most of the 70 or so Russian personnel enjoy about the same level of access to the alliance headquarters as journalists. It´s a small but significant sign

The Obama Administration will be adding insult with its cancellation of production of the Navy’s Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs. These decisions followed by just weeks the decision to reclassify two hospital ships, 10 coastal patrol craft and a ferry boat as “capital warships.” The Tomahawk decision is particularly troubling, as the cruise missile has for years been the workhorse of presidents seeking to deliver limited, precise, stand-off military responses. During the 2011 Libyan crisis, the Navy flung 220 Tomahawks in support of operations. We launched more than 1,100 at Kosovo. About 100 of these missiles are used in an average

My American Enterprise Institute colleague Nick Eberstadt provides a reminder that the federal government has been a pioneer in producing useful and reliable statistics. It began with the Constitution´s unprecedented and, in Eberstadt´s words, “truly revolutionary” requirement that a census of population be conducted at regular intervals and that the number of representatives each state would have in the House of Representatives would be based on it. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the quality and quantity of government statistics has been deteriorating. Eberstadt decries in particular the government’s “hastily devised ‘federal poverty measure’ unveiled in 1965,” which

On top of rising premiums, Obamacare taxes are adding hundreds of dollars per year onto customers’ costs, according to new study from the American Action Forum. Those who braved the health-care law’s exchanges will have to pay an extra $354 on average in 2014, reports the free-market D.C.-based think tank, just due to seven taxes included in Obamacare. The vast majority of the country covered by employer-sponsored health insurance will be forced to pay a somewhat lower tab of $196 to cover the taxes. Those with self-funded employer-sponsored insurance are exempt from several of the largest culprits and will have the lowest

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of
