The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Im impressionable when hungry. Last week I overheard the word taco and immediately started thinking about where I could get same for dinner on my way home. Central Nassau is a little light in the taco department, but it does boast one surefire taco hit, Little Mexico in Westbury. (Click here for a list of other good tacos on Long Island.)
My pal and I both got exactly the same three tacos, lengua (tongue), al pastor (grilled pork) and chorizo sausage; everything was terrific, though pastor always makes me wistful for vacations in Mexico where al pastor signifies pork that has been grilled, gyro-style, on a rotating vertical column in front of a heat source. This is something Ive never found on Long Island.
Another thing I love about tacos al pastor is the garnish onions, cilantro and, of all things, pineapple. This, Little Mexico delivered on.
While we waited for our tacos, I consumed far too much guacamole. So it goes.
Little Mexico is at 280 Post Ave., Westbury, 516-333-2038.
