things I learned on a taco crawl

Rate This Recipe

The Taster and I recently spent a Saturday afternoon on a taco crawl. It was SO much fun! We sampled tons of flavorful tacos, explored new neighborhoods and learned a few things on the way…

  1. Start the crawl early…I think 11am would be the perfect start time
  2. Bring a few bottles of water to hydrate between bites
  3. Fresh corn tortillas are nothing short of amazing
  4. Groups of 4 people or smaller – you should be able to drive together in a car
  5. Bring cash – a number of the places we visited only took cash
  6. Do not go on an ethnic food crawl if you need to know what every single ingredient is or if the meat is local or not. Just don’t.
  7. Don’t plan on eating afterwards! We foolishly made plans for sushi afterwards, but thankfully sushi is pretty “light” πŸ™‚
  8. No matter how tempting, only order 1 taco per restaurant and better yet – share!

Now we’re looking for our next “food crawl” idea…

      This wasn’t an organized crawl, just suggested stops on a food blog that I read, so you could definitely make your own. It was nice to know what was good at each place though.

    This is such a good idea! I can only imagine where I could start in Chicago…Italian beef, pizza, guacamole… #6 is so true. Someone I know once visited Chicago and asked where she should go that was “true” Chicago. I told her Portillo’s. She asked if it was organic/grass-fed/local and I looked at her like she had 3 heads. Not. the. point. πŸ™‚

    Which taco places did you go to? I live in the LA area and would love to check out the ones you guys liked!

    Fun! In Milwaukee, there is a place that does food tours. We did the bloody mary brunch tour, which was so much fun. Usually the tours focus on different neighborhoods in the city, so you are trying a lot of different things.
