Coyo Taco

Coyo Taco

Any trip to North Miami gives me an excuse to stop in Wynwood on my way home. Aside from its fabulous art, so much good food is there. One place that is newer to the block is Coyo, a taco restaurant,

Tacos come two per order and range from 6 to 9 dollars. I had the pastor de pollo that had chicken, roasted pineapple and onion and the camaron one with seared gulf shrimp, mango slow and chipotle aioli. I really liked how the spice of the chipotle aioli paired with the mango slaw brought the taco together. I highly recommend it.

If you’re not in the mood for tacos (don’t know how this would be the case if you’re coming in for Mexican eats), they offer burritos, salad bowls or burrito bowls. My mom fell into this category and got the carne asada bowl.

Couldn’t leave without dessert; however, our meter was running out so we took them to go. Best. Decision. Ever.

Windows of Wynwood

Over the last five years, the Wynwood area has transformed itself. Restaurants have been coming in and placing their roots. Some of my favorites include Mandolin and Sugarcane. Additionally, sprawling canvas of walls has allowed artists to come into the area and showcase their talents.

Can’t wait to see what the next five years have in store.

Big Star Taco | Chicago

Another spot that was really close by to where I was staying in Chicago was Big Star Taco. Recently I have been in a huge taco crunch. I can’t get enough.

Walking in I was eating alone so I decided to sit at the bar. I was the only one. Thus I got a lot of attention from the servers and they were really nice to me. One was joking with me about taking pictures and it not being allowed. She must’ve noticed that I was in from Chicago. But hey a bloggers got to do what a bloggers got to do.

To eat I had three tacos. I had the taco de pescado, taco de pollo pibil and the taco de chorizo verde.

The fish taco had a beer battered tilapia fillet, chipotle mayo, cabbage, red onion, lime and cilantro. It was very good; I added a little bit of one of the sauces to add additional flavor. The chicken taco was quite good too; it had chicken thighs steamed in banana leaves with citrus marinade, pickled red onions and cilantro. My favorite, however, was the chorizo taco. It had pork sausage, poblano, serrano, pumpkin and sesame seeds, potato, onion and cilantro and had quite the kick.  I absolutely loved it.

I love satisfied having had only three tacos and having spent 10 bucks on tacos. That was a win in my book. For anyone who’s looking to come in please know that it’s cash only.
