Lincoln Pk Mex. Crawl..Guac & Chick Tacos Late Nite

Chicago Mike | Nov 15, 2003 04:10 AM

Well, decided to breakout tonite and put the nabe mexican joints to the test....All these tastings are done Head-To-Head so it's objective as far as our tastes go.

1) Guacamole. #1 winner was Taco & Burrito Express, just s. of Kingston Mines on Halsted. Flavorful, nice chunks of avocado, not miserably mushy. #2 was Taco & Burrito House, opposite side of Halsted, down a block or so....about same quality, duller taste. The guac at Allende was "mayonaisey" and at Angelas Burrito Style on Clark it was a bit "clay-ey"...just glommy green stuff with who knows what. We would eat the first two again.

2) Basic Chicken Taco. #1 Winner by a distance is La Bamba at Wrightwood & Clark. Cheese between tortillas, deeply spiced taste, it's small but #1. #2 is angelas.

The other tacos didn't rate" T&B express, T&B House, Allende
