Lengua Gets Another Try
Adobada: marinated pork, distant cousin of al pastor.
Lengua: cow tongue, made me woozy twice before.
This was my first time getting the lengua from Taco Loco. It was diced a little smaller and spiced a little bigger than what I've had in the past. Good thing too, I think I'm finally getting used to it.
The adobada taco was delicious, as expected.
Web Overlords Love Burritos
We went to Taco Loco in Somerville to talk about the Internet and burritos. Taco Loco is also pretty excellent, and I really don't go there often enough. As proof, I got lost on the way there. Then I lost the pictures once I returned home.
Like embarrassing secrets in Ashlee Simpson's past, the photos of our lunch have resurfaced for your enjoyment.

Dim The Lights
This picture is so old I can't even guess the month. I'm almost caught up with the archive photos. As these pictures trickle out, I remember exactly how amazing places like Taco Loco are.
Don't be brave. I take that back. Be brave and get any kind of solid food at Taco Loco. Don't be stupid. Don't get the La Cascada.
My Very First Adobada Taco
Despite its being a little lopsided, I was pumped to give this a try. Adobada is spicy, marinated pork.
I was very impressed, but it's too greasy to eat everyday. My compliments to the adobada chef.
I Am Forced To Reexamine Everything
Until Taco Loco.
Lesson learned. There's more than one way to make a burrito.
Welcome To Taco LocoTaco Loco lives in Somerville, MA, just under the route 93 overpass (Map). Please don't confuse this Taco Loco with others of the same name in Connecticut, Alaska, Oregon, or El Taco Loco in Pennsylvania. They are unaffiliated.
Apparently, Taco Loco (The Crazy Taco) is an uncreative name. Surprise, surprise.
Still, there's nothing typical of the Sommerville installation. There's a little room for seating, and plenty on the menu. They sell burritos, tacos, plates, pupusas, quesadillas, melts, soups and salads. And the prices are reasonable.
