Ready for one of the best sandwiches in Middletown? I meant to get here much sooner, but finally ran over for takeout lunch yesterday to try the El Mexicano "Tacandwich"--"roasted, achiote-marinated chicken, green citrus slaw, avocado, salsa fresca and our signature chilera sauce." Comes with thickly sliced housemade chips. I'm not usually a chip person, but I ate every last one. Deliciousness all the way around.

What's a tacandwich? Here's their definition:
Tacandwich n. (ta cand witch) – A combination of Latin American taco fillings served in a Portuguese roll, giving you the great flavors of the tacos you love with the convenience of a sandwich.

And let me tell you something, it's a winning combo. I'd love to know where they get their Portuguese rolls. I have never eaten a better one.

I had my eye on some fine-looking empanadas (along with a variety of baked goods on the counter). I'll be back again soon.
