You can't go wrong with tacos at Little Mexico in Westbury. Here, left to right, tacos of lengua (tongue), pork (pastor) and chorizo (sausage). (July 5, 2012) Credit: Newsday/Erica Marcus

I’m 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 I’ve 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.
