922 Fulton St, Brooklyn, NY 11238, USA
Unlike Los Angeles (duh) and Chicago (surprising!), New York City doesn't have too much in the way of "authentic" Mexican food outside of Red Hook Ball Fields' local street vendors. Yes, the city is filled with tons of Latino flavor, but when it...
Grange Park, Toronto, ON, Canada
Toronto is little bit obsessed with tacos right now, with full service, hyper designer or hipster restaurants opening every month. Proving that sometimes simple is best, SEVEN LIVES is basically a "barely there" food stall in the middle of...
501 College St, Toronto, ON M6G 1A5, Canada
This is not only a great restaurant but a great story. Three friends tested an experiment in advertising by selling tacos out of their advertising agency downtown. Since they were prohibited to sell food without selling a product, they...
Boca de paila Km 5.5, 77766 Tulum, Q.R., Mexico
On the beach in Tulum, Amansala is a rustic and low-key place to stay and eat. I'm here on my second annual yoga retreat—three hours of yoga in the morning and an hour-and-a-half of Pilates in the evening. The food is fresh, healthy, and...
400 W 2nd St A, Austin, TX 78701, USA
Tacos in Austin are like pizza slices in New York. They’re everywhere. I dined at La Condesa restaurant in buzzing downtown Austin to learn more about quintessential TexMex cuisine. Condesa is known for its hip Latin style and two-story bar...
3201 N Davidson St, Charlotte, NC 28205, USA
In Charlotte, North Carolina's NoDa (North Davidson) district, several old mills have been converted into art galleries, shops, and restaurants. Stop by Cabo Fish Taco and try the BBQ Mahi Tacos. There is a load of flavor packed into each flour...
50 E Broadway Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85701, USA
Chile en nogada is a poblano chile pepper, stuffed with peccadillo (shredded meat, aromatic diced dried fruit and spices), topped with a walnut-cream sauce and pomegranate seeds. This dish from Puebla is not often found on menus of Mexican...
1341 Collier Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30318, USA
During my recent trip to Atlanta, my friends and I had the pleasure of visiting this under-the-radar spot for lunch. Alton Brown named one of its signature dishes as the best thing he's ever had. Enough said—I had to try it. Once we arrived it...
Carretera Tulum Ruinas Km 5.3, 77780 Tulum, Q.R., Mexico
They lay claim to the Best Fish Tacos on Earth... and they mean IT! Delicious fried fish tacos done up Baja style with an incredibly good secret sauce and mango salsa. This place is on the north end of the Tulum beach and is a good pit stop when...
Calle 34, Centro, Gonzalo Guerrero, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
"Hipster" meaning awesome modern takes on classic favorites, served up by attractive tattooed young foodies. Playa del Carmen is lucky to have two locations of this taqueria and cevicheria. Los Aguachiles was a local friend's #1 recommendation and...
940 Auahi St #140, Honolulu, HI 96814, USA
I first visited Wahoo's Fish Taco in Denver and have been going back ever since. It seems much more appropriate that Wahoo's, with its surfboarding theme, has a location in Hawaii. The location I frequented is in Ala Moana. Time permitting, I...
50 N Hotel St, Honolulu, HI 96817, USA
A trendy, hip, and newly renovated restaurant in Chinatown, the reclaimed wood interior at Lucky Belly creates a comfortable atmosphere to enjoy ramen bowls, salads, seafood, and lamb lumpia for lunch or for late takeout. A connoisseur of fish...
75-5663 Palani Rd, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740, USA
A little peckish for lunch, I dropped in at Splashers on a recommendation from a street artist on Alii Drive. Though I was on my own, I quickly felt embraced by the local aloha and friendly atmosphere of the restaurant. I people watched - a group...
