Taco de Cabeza from Tacos Gomez
Series: Great Dishes of 2016
There were many great tacos in 2016, from places like La Michoacana, The Bebedero, Al Carbon, Brazos, Tako Nako, Las Cavanas, Beer Run, and more. But, the most memorable was this masterpiece from the truck Tacos Gomez. A handmade tortilla encases silky, gelatinous, robust meat pulled from the head of a cow, with cilantro and onion to cut the richness. It was not just the best taco of 2016, but a serious contender for dish of the year.
