Miami's Ten Best Tacos

4. Purple People Eatery
Sure the truck has an adorable monster on it and the dishes have cutesy names. Try to go beyond that because this truck uses the freshest ingredients in innovative ways. The Mahi Miami taco bathes local fish in a ginger beer batter then fries until golden brown. Placed in a corn tortilla, it's topped with pineapple-jalapeno salsa then finished with radishes for a traditional breath of fresh air. Equally good are the pork carnitas tacos, made with slow cooked pulled pork, kimchee crema, and cilantro. $5 each, but you'll want the three for $12 deal. Trust us on that one.

3. The Bazaar by Jose Andres
The menu is so large, items can get lost, but allow us to point out the Japanese taco at The Bazaar. The tacos arrive on a chrome frame. The taco shell is so thin it's almost transparent. Inside, you'll find grilled eel, shiso, cucumbers, and a hint of wasabi. Finally, some pork chicharrones give a little crunch and texture. At $10, it's our trendiest and most pedigreed taco on our list.

I know and many other should be here. I'm Mexican and when they said. " Better than Mexico" is so funny! The only reason I visit Mexico once month is to visit my mom and eat tacos. South Florida in Mexican Food is like Ten years behind.

Although I've never tried them, Chipotle has some deliciously good looking tacos. Co-workers eat them all the time when we go there, I get the bowl. But since they go out of their way to get them, they can't be too bad ?
