El Chipotle Deli-Norwalk

I've started to make the Taco rounds in Norwalk. Los Molcajetes has been great as well as Tacos Mexico. Los Portales makes a good taco, but it is their Tamales that I usually get.

Has anyone been to EL Chipotle Deli and or any of the other places in Norwalk

    Los Molcajetes is the best bet of the ones you mention - particularly when you can get them to hand make your tortillas. I haven't tried the tamales at Los Portales. What kinds do they offer?

    El Chipotle is just OK. It's a really odd place. The space was obviously built for a much larger business. It's a big, cavernous space with a trapezoidal interior shape. You walk in and are greeted with a couple of lonely grocery aisles half stocked with aging products. Then way in the back there's a deli counter and a surprisingly large menu. According to my notes, I've only tried the tacos, which are $2.50 each. They were just OK... nothing special, really. I've had lengua, bistek, and chorizo there... if I remember correctly I don't think they have al pastor.

      Thanks for the info. I drive by on the way to work and have always wondered if it was worth a visit.

      I'll stick with Los Molcajetes and Tacos Mexiico.

      Any recs on Tamales in the Norealk area.

      Good luck on your move. I've really enjoyed your posts over the years.

        thanks. Tamales... not really. In fact, I just haven't really searched for tamales too much in the area. That's as much of a fault of my own as it is a statement about the variety of options.
