A systematic deep dive into tacos in Norwalk/Stamford

adamclyde | Jul 29, 2009 02:28 PM

I've done some pretty deep excursions over the past few years to find the best empanada in Westchester, and the best tacos in White Plains and the best mexican food in both New Rochelle and Port Chester. But I realized recently I've kind of neglected my home town of Stamford (and Norwalk by close approximation). It's not that I haven't tried nearly every taco to be had in the two towns, but I've done it over a period of a few years and without the focus of a good side by side comparison. So... I think it's time to do a systematic breakdown of tacos in this area.

First, I need to start with a full list of my possibilities - both (good and bad). I need your help editing this list. And, of course, all recommendations and experiences are appreciated. As always, I'll report back the findings here. Like my empanada excursion, this will probably take me a while. But again, I've got to take one for the team here. :)

The full list (please add to it). I've put question marks next to ones I just found by peeking into google maps. Can you verify if they are legit?

Casa Villa
El Charrito
Ole Mole
The Maya Restaurant
Los Girasoles
Tacos Guadalajara
Taco Bell (just kidding)

Los Portales
El Aculpulco
Tacos Mexico
Los Cabos
El Mexicano
Mi Ranchito's Tacos?
Casa Maya?

I'm already hungry....
