My friend Stephanie introduced me to some new running buddies who are actually more in to brunch than running but hey, can’t blame them. We met at Engineer’s Gate and ran the inner loop (4 miles) in Central Park so that we could justify our brunch so soon after Thanksgiving feasting. Karen recommended Taco Taco Taco Taco
based on reading some reviews on and we were all happy with the pick. As one reviewer mentioned, you would never think a place with such a name could be the real deal.

Their brunch menu was so exciting; so many items I wasn’t familiar with. I’m used to reading menus that read soft tacos, hard tacos, burritos, fajitas, or salads. Then choose beef, pork, chicken, or vegetarian, and sometimes shrimp. At Taco Taco, there was a wide variety of omelets, all the standard fair, and then at least five dishes I hadn’t heard of. Unfortunately, I can’t remember any other than the one I ordered, but the Cazuela was so good. It’s a baked dish with tortilla, black beans, roasted poblano chiles, sunny side up eggs, sauce, and melted cheese. If you like all of those ingredients, as I do, you will love the Cazuela. I was also surprised that it wasn’t at all oily. I often feel gross after a Mexican meal even if I do love it. I finished the entire dish and felt like I had a pretty healthy meal.

I would definitely recommend brunch at Taco Taco and I will probably bring Lon there. It’s a no frills place but the service is fine and the prices are right.
