Contributor Stalking (The “Best Taco Ever” Edition)

Do you wonder what the ML contributors do when they’re not eating lunch in Midtown? (They’re actually pretty easy to stalk!)

Blondie checked out 2010 Vendy Fave Patacon Pisao in Elmhurst, while Brownie reported that Robicelli’s cupcakes are now available at Qathra in Ditmas Park. Ultraclay was in Barcelona recently, and hit up Boqueria for some vacation nostalgia, Donny had some delicious pernil from Tio Pio on Court St. in Brooklyn, Brian Hoffman had a fried bologna sandwich at Seersucker in Carroll Gardens, and Chris H had a great dinner at Tenpenny on 46th Street.

Around the rest of the ML Universe… Andrea discovered secret slices at Rubirosa downtown, Jamie does some serious pre-Passover carbo loading in Philly, and I had one of the great tacos I’ve ever eaten in my life from a truck in Los Angeles.

    The picture of the patacon blondie refers to as a beef patacon isnt a patacon… looks more like the beef arepa… the picture at the top of the page is one of patacons.

  • @Lou. You are 100% correct. I just left that exact comment on her page.

    If any of you midtown lunchers haven’t made the trek to Patacon, I highly recommend it. It’s a subway stop away from me…which mean’s trouble.

    I personally find Patacon more enjoyable than Caracas. Maybe not as trendy, but its definitely priced in the ML range and is delicious to boot.
