A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Tacos Mexico in Norwalk.
Tacos Mexico entices incisors with its menu of traditional and innovative Mexican fare. Enlist a legion of hungering diners to tongue-attack the tomatillo-draped enchiladas verdes ($6.99), or ponder the savory depths and philosophical musings of the super taco, a meaty meal of three separate tacos constructed with grilled meat, cilantro, onion, and warm tortillas ($8.49). Oceanic eats such as salmon al a jillo, a tasty plank of salmon served with corn, chili ancho, and fresh garlic ($11.99), reside in harmony with landlubbing edibles, such as the piquant pechuga a la diabla, a tender filet of grilled chicken fired with a spicy glaze of diabla sauce ($9.99). Tacos Mexico also offers up slurpable states of food matter with its selection of soups and appeases lighter appetites with appetizer-appropriate orders of guacamole ($3.99) and melty quesadillas ($5.99).
- It always hits the spot. The burritos are grade A and the service is great. It is the best Mexican food in Fairfield county, hands down. – Amin S., Yelp, 12/1/10
- At Tacos Mexico, the food is presented rustically, with evident love and care. The courteous and attentive service is refreshing for a place this casual. – Kerry Barlas, CTbites
Avocados, jalapeños, and tomatillos. These staples of traditional Mexican cuisine take center stage at Tacos Mexico, where the dishes’ rustic simplicity lets their flavors shine through. Chefs nestle tender morsels of steak, carnitas, or chorizo into corn tortillas to create their signature tacos, and they also turn out more complex entrees, such as cubes of pork loin blanketed in a rich mole sauce or vegetarian options that spotlight portabella mushrooms and cacti.
As guest conclude their meals with sweet nibbles of tres leches cake or coconut flan, they can listen to the ebb and flow of a soccer match broadcast on the flat-screen television hanging over the bar. Nearby, a belt of cornflower blue wraps around the dining room’s bright, yellow walls, which bear paintings of traditional Mexican pueblos rather than Mexico’s newest moon colonies.
