Taco Man says: Stay in School-- Do Tacos, not Drugs

Fish Taco Death Match
Great title on this post from Das Ubergeek on Chowhound. For an ostensibly german computer nerd, this dude knows his fish tacos and helpfully provides addresses to spread the goodness for his fellow hounds. Eventually he concludes that between El Taco Nazo and Tacos Baja Ensenada, it's tough to pick a winner because both are so good. I have never been to ETN, but TBE is one of my favorite spots to hit when I'm East of Downtown.

New Taco Review from Bandini
Our man in the Iron Taco Mask hits up a truck I know well as I used to work nearby. He finds the tacos pretty good, but the Cemitas a bit dry. I'm no cemitas expert, but in my experience tortas always come with mayo, which I fucking hate. Normally I try to keep this space clean and family friendly, but mayonnaise is a disgusting, filthy product designed to ruin everything it touches with its eggy, oily taste and flavor. I slather my tortas in Tapatio to make sure they're not too dry.

Sweet New Taco Review Site
This may be old to the rest of you, but it's new to me. GoodDoings does good reviews of taco trucks and drops taco wisdom here and there for newer practicioners of the taco lifestyle. They're fans of Taco Zone in Echo Park so they're alright with me. Hey, DoingsPeeps, let's get some tacos sometime!

Betty Crocker Loves the Tacos
Here's a recipe from Betty Crocker for slow-cooked chipotle soft tacos. Betty is getting hip with the scene, next thing you know she'll be reporting for taco and writing nug reports. Actually on closer inspection, the recipe sounds kinda nershty.

Techno n Tacos
Michigan's latest hipster craze is to pack a bunch of young people in a room, listen to techno, and eat mass quantities of tacos. I'm more of a slow-jams guy myself but this is a trend I can get behind in a big way. LA hipster promoters, where is the ____ n tacos night? The Gold Room is the only place I know where free tacos are mixed with music and alcohol.
