El Taco de Mexico is a legend in this town, in business for 28 years and held up as a culinary paragon for almost as long. This year, the restaurant is serving mini steak, rice and bean burritos, smothered in that award-winning green chile.
Sasha Zanabria of El Taco also promises that alambre tacos will be making an appearance at the food festival. Normally these tacos are a special off-menu request, but Zanabria and crew are bringing them loaded with steak, Anaheim chile, onions, cheese, ham and bacon. It's a dish with serious Mexican roots, Zanabria says: "Our alambre tacos are originally from the taco stands of Mexico City. Our burritos are from the northern region of Mexico -- Chihuahua, Sonora and other northern regions."
Tacos from El Taco are just some of the dozens of offerings you'll find at DISH, which runs from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 7. (VIP entrance is at 11 a.m.) To see what else is in store and buy tickets for this culinary celebration's twentieth anniversary, visit the 2014 DISH site.
