When no was looking, the taco conquered the world. The antojito, or snack, defined simply as a tortilla wrapped around a filling, can be found in myriad variations around the globe. But it’s more than that. The taco is a symbol of possibilities, adaptability and endurance, and one of Mexico’s national dishes. It is Mexico’s gift to the world. When I eat a great taco, I eat a world-silencing food. And I want to learn as much about it as I can by reading, listening, traveling and eating, of course.
This taco blog documents the journey with reviews, news items and the like, from New York to San Diego, with most of the content focusing on tacos and taco culture in Dallas and North Texas. Originally a weekly feature on the Dallas Observer food blog, City of Ate, the Taco Trail went independent in May 2011 on Blogger. However, here, the taco blogging gets a bit more serious.
