This year, we teamed up with taco journalist Mando Rayo to cover one of the most important celebrations of Mexican culture: Día de los Muertos. He traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico, to participate in the festivities and capture the details for this feature.
When you think of “food from New York,” dishes like bagels and lox, pizza-by-the-slice, or even loaded deli sandwiches may spring to mind.
However, if you’re sleeping on tacos in the Big Apple, you’re missing out on a world of flavor. While there may not be a definitive “New York-style taco,” the many taquerías of NYC contribute to an incredible taco scene. Nearly 25% of the roughly 8.5 million people who call New York home are Hispanic or Latino, and each neighborhood and institution has something special to add to the community.
On the premiere of the new season of Todos Los Tacos, we’ll go on a taco tour of New York as we explore three remarkable establishments.
- First up, La Morada –– a traditional Oaxacan restaurant in the Bronx that serves tacos from a constantly-changing menu based on what ingredients are fresh and in-season.
- Next, The Birria-Landia Taco Truck –– run by career chef, José Moreno, who brought the distinctive Birria taco dish to the streets of New York. (And earned a profile by The New York Times in the process.)
- Finally, Taquería Ramirez –– the passion project of husband and wife Gio and Tania that features a small menu, but big flavors, and a renowned special: the Tripe Taco.
Join us as we explore their stories and the many influences that make New York a must-visit taco destination as we kick off our new season of the VICE and MUNCHIES’ hit series, Todos Los Tacos.
