I was searching for something new while running errands in Norwalk today and read about Rincon Taqueria, hidden on a hill across Conn. Ave from the Kohls. It sounded like a fairly traditional taco joint, so we gave it a shot. Very glad I did. It is a simple joint, with low prices, but the food is far more interesting than I expected. We had:
Fish tacos - small strips of fish fried super-crisp in a slightly spicy breading. With a nice green sauce.
Chicken taco - overflowing with a spiced pulled chicken.
Beef Empanada - a sweetish picadillo of beef. A little greasy, but in a good way.
Chicken tamale - quite large, with an interesting masa studded with corn and chicken in a red sauce.
5 tacos, 1 empanada and 1 tamale came to about $30 with tax and tip. They added a little rice and beans on the side, which made it plenty for 2 adults and a kid. It seems to be run by a couple with her mother as the cook, and everyone was super nice. The place was about half full, which is OK, but it deserves to be swamped based on the food. I'll be back soon.
