Lost Taco A native Angeleno’s quest to find a decent taco in his (her?) new home city of New York. I understand the problem — I lived in California for a year, and I’m spoiled for Mexican food (or at least, Americanized pseudo-Mex) for life now. Of course, California’s great for Mexican, but try getting a decent slice of pizza there. Or a decent bowl of ramen noodles in Toronto. Or a Philly-style hoagie in New York. Or a decent crab cake in New Jersey (I lived in Maryland for a while, too).
