The Best Mexican Food in Brooklyn.. Tepango

Brooklyn is full of surprises, and Tepango Taqueira is no exception. I didn’t know this little Clinton Hill corner diamond on Myrtle and Classon had this kind of remarkable cuisine tucked inside. ‘Never judge a book by its cover’ in this instance certainly still holds true. Stopping in for some quick mexican food before Brooklyn Tap House and running out on the sandwich I ordered at the gas station was by far the best, trifling decision I ever made. The previous gas station shenanigans across the street is for another entry..

That’s neither here nor there. The focus should be on the Tepango treasures I devoured before Tap House….

The Tacos Bistec and the Quesadillas Con Carne were insane.  Flavorful, with unquestionably fresh ingredients, I couldn’t have asked for better results to an impulsive, last minute decision. It was perfect and divine.  In my previous travels, I have had some really incredible mexican food.  Mainly in LA and Dallas.  I have to say, never would I have expected Texas and California style authentic Mexican food to be attainable in ‘err uh Brooklyn.  Well it is, and it most certainly gets my Obsessionista stamp of approval.  So next time you’re in Clinton Hill, be sure to stop by.  Thank me later.. oh and, stay away from the gas station across the street.  Buen provecho!!

Impromptu El Torito Stop in Bakersfield, CA

After an epic fail of driving all the way out to a popular Bakersfield foodie favorite – Wool Growers, only to find out that it was closed for dinner, I ended up at an old faithful. El Torito is a very popular chain in CA and actually has pretty good food. Tonight was no different. To accommodate my massive appetite…

I naturally went with their most massive appetizer.  It consisted of Adobo Chicken & Avocado Rolls, Habanerno Wings,  Taquitos Rancheros, cheese quesadilla, beef tostaditas, and guacamole.  In addition to the tray of Mexican awesomeness, Tony added a bit of flair to the Latin cuisine moment with his superb bartending appeal.

So if you ever venture out into Bakersfield prior to 6:00pm and the “wool” is not “growing” on the eastside and you can take Mexican over Basque, then play it safe and head over to El Torito.
