What’s the best way to celebrate National Taco Day? By jumping on a plane, heading over to Mexico City and feasting on some authentic Mexican tacos. What’s the second best way to celebrate? To take the human to Taquiza taqueria on South Beach for a proper taco spread that even my Mexican pals would be proud of.
Why do I like Tacos so much? Just think about it: a corn tortilla (corn > flour) + a solid source of protein (I pawsonally prefer pork) + toppings & sauces to your hearts content = endless possibilities!
You like pineapple? Get yourself a Taco alpastor.
You like seafood? Then enjoy a little shrimp and citrus combo.
And if you happen to enjoy a little Tex Mex, add some sour cream and cheese and you’ve got yourself my favorite! (anything with cheese is my favorite).
Basically, If you can dream it, it can be built into a delicious taco!
What The Human and I Ordered at Taquiza (a recap in photos):
Cancel all your plans to Mexico and just come to Miami! (ok, that is a very big exaggeration but the Tacos are damn good and if you are ever in Miami or currently live here now, go check Taquiza out!). The human travels to Mexico often and says these are as authentic as they can get.
Want to eat a Taco like a true Mexican? Then put away the fork and knife and roll up your sleeves because you have to eat it with your hands!
Step 1: Grab the Taco with your thumb on one side and your index & middle finger on the other.
Step 2: Proceed to lift the taco towards your mouth.
Step 3: Always, always, always hold your pinky finger up (see below). It’s the true Mexican way. It is harder than it looks so some practice might be needed.
Practice eating Tacos? I can think of a few worse ways to spend the time 🙂
