  1. Taqueria el amigo in Waltham...lots of threads on this

    1. I have met people in Mexico who assure me that there is no such thing as a "taco" but rather that it is a style of eating regular food that people happen to stuff into a tortilla and eat.

        That being said, eat stuff in a tortilla at Dorados in Brookline! Also too, there is no such thing as a "sandwich", it's just a style of eating regular food that people happen to stuff between bread and eat :P

        1. re: Tripeler

          Pizza as a foodstuff is also a myth: it's just a style of eating sauce and cheese and stuff on flatbread. My friends from Naples told me that.

            An Israeli friend says just about anything can be rolled up in pita and called shawarma.

                  Annnnnd we have now definitively disproven the idea that sticking anything into a corn tortilla makes it a taco...

                    Seconded. Did not have tacos but if the torta and quesadilla I just had there is any indication, you'll be happy here.

                      1. tenoch is my go to place for tacos though i lament their limited menu.

                        I just had dinner at Topolobombo in Chicago; I bought just simple stuff, but I thought that it was really good. Excellent ceviches, excellent tacos, and something called momello.
