The State of the Taco in White Plains

OK, so I got an interesting call a week or so ago asking if I wanted to guest column something for Westchester Magazine's EATER column/blog. I suggested doing a round up of taquerias in white plains and they, surprisingly agreed. You can read it here:

In short, my new favorite places for tacos in White Plains are (in order) are: Sunshine Deli (Lake St) and Mexico Lindo (Post Rd). I was tipped off to the former place by a posting here on chowhound a few months ago... it just took me a while to follow up! So thanks folks for all the collective posts over the years.

The Eater doesn't allow comments... and since chowhound is my real home, I thought I'd link to it for your reaction. Anyone have any different suggestions for great tacos in White Plains?

In doing this, I was reminded yet again how much finding a great taco around here is like shooting at a fast moving target. The tacos at one place could be drastically different day to day. Frustratingly so. But sunshine deli and mexico lindo were quite good each time I went. Plus the al pastor tacos were very good (now if only I could predict when the al pastor spits ran, I could time my lunch accordingly).

Anyhow, the good news is that good tacos can be find in White Plains. If I'm bringing my wife along, I'll still be going to Port Chester or New Rochelle, where you can get a broader variety of good dishes in a setting not quite so starkly hole in the wall-esque, but white plains isn't a mexican wasteland at least...
