Miami's Ten Best Tacos

2. Mercadito Taqueria
Sure Mercadito is all lovely, but we like to go next door to dog-friendly Mercadito Taqueria and grab three tacos for $9 (they're $3.50 each). Pollo cooked in adobo, fresh pescado, or al pastor with a hint of sweet pineapple are all good choices, but when the weather is this warm, we stand by the calabacitas, made with grilled zucchini, black bean hash, and cactus salsa.  Wash them down with fresh and cold agua frescas in flavors like watermelon and lime ($3.5), made daily.

1. Redland Market Village
It's a schlep...but make a day of it and go to Redland Market Village where you can buy everything from car stereos to bootleg copies of videos. After you've had your fill of haggling for t-shirts and pinatas, make your way to the food stands where you'll find rows of pork on revolving spits, topped with pineapple. Though we like Lucky Tacos' version of the al pastor ($1.50), feel free to try more than one. Some stands have lengua, some tripe, some fish. They're all delicious, authentic, and cheap.

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 ?
