Ay carumba! The Simpsons has a great bit about Bart eating 100 tacos for $100. In NYC, I pay up to $4 for a taco so that seems like a yellow dream (LA peeps, don't even get me started. I know you think you have the lock on Mexican food..and you pretty much do). Anyhow, my dream has come true, y'all! I recently tried Danny Bowien's new restaurant Mission Cantina with the homie Sachin (Frank & Oak) and was shocked to find $1 tacos.
Before you get the singles out, I know what you're thinking: How good are $1 tacos anyways? Let me tell you, as someone who takes her tacos very seriously, these stand up to their more expensive amigos. The tortillas are so soft it's like a cloud party in your mouth and who would've thunk it that split pea and buttermilk crema would be a thing? Cheap eats that don't taste cheap.
Honorable mention: The black kale caesar salad with grapefruit and pepitas is not $1 but it's really one of the best salads I've had in a grip. After saving so much on tacos, you deserve to treat yourself.
