Latino Food

I have seen little reference to good Latino food in CT. Recently I had the good fortune to eat at two surprisingly good places. The first was a 15 month old restaurant in Waterbury called El Americano. Not much to look at, but good food. The tostones and pork sandwich were excellent. The second was just the other day, when I found a taco truck pulled into a parking lot in Woodbury - El Camion. The menu is limited to various tacos and burritos, but the fish taco was excellent, with firm fish, crunchy cabbage, and a fresh mango and corn salsa. I'm tired of the places that claim to serve authentic cuisine, but serve the tired old taco and enchilada menus where you know the food has been microwaved. I want to hear about places that serve not just Mexican, but other Latino cuisines, and are really good. I want to know about places that if they serve mole, serve other than mole poblano, for instance. There must be places that serve great food. Let's share our references.
