Bushwick has a lot of freaking tacos. In my search for the ultimate, thought I’d find a few places, like maybe five, and then write up the best. But then it turned into seven, and then 10, and then every block I was stopping into another taco place. There were so many tacos eaten that my clothes stopped fitting. I figured I was pregnant. Which would have been a total bummer. But nope, it’s just that I ate so many damn tacos. Here, the highlights in my journey of 6,253 calories.
Tacos 1-3 (above): Taqueria El Fogon, 1050 Flushing Ave., (718) 497-7445
My roommate really likes this place. But she’s a vegetarian, so there’s that. I get why she would like the tacos here because they are all basically vegetarian. I ordered a carnitas taco and it was basically a taco covered in salad. Also, the carnitas was kinda meh, which seems like an impossibility. Apparently a lot of people like it, but based on the criteria of my mouth, they are wrong.
