Ah, the almighty taco. Few mortals can deny the allure of a piping hot tortilla filled with mixed Mexi-goodness. Be it flour or corn, meaty or veggie, cheesy or sour creamy, the taco may very well be one of the greatest inventions of our time. The light bulb? Whatever. The wheel? Puhhlease. This week, get wrapped up as we taco 'bout some of the tastiest tacos Miami has to offer.

Although best known for its Cuban roots, the east side of Little Havana harbors some of the most popular taquerías in the city. To keep her palate pleased and wallet full, Ivonne Marie C rediscovers Taquería El Mexicano, a "little place with big flavor." Likewise, Mi Rinconcito "has all the hallmarks of good eating: fresh, great quality, and cheap," if you ask Jeff G. For Kelly O, Orale's mouthwatering carnitas and pastores make for "the best tacos in Miami," while Stephanie W insists size matters when feeding extra grande cravings with a "weekly schlep to Ver Daddy's for the totally ginormous Macho Taco."

If the suburbs are more your scene, find "taco heaven" with Laily B at Don Burrito, where "generously-filled tacos will give you the fix you were desperately aching for," especially since "the owners are from Mexico and they're doing their best to keep things true to the original." Equally genuine is nearby Ernesto's where you can tackle tantalizing tacos de lengua, carne asada, y al pastor. To stay friendly to your finances, try their Three Amigos Special: any 3 tacos for $6.50 served with guacamole and pico de gallo. Javier A's response? "Absolutely incredible!"

Jewel M's reigning favorites at Burritos are – despite the name – "the tacos, served true Yucatecan style on a flat circular soft corn tortilla with the fillings piled on top." Another yummy Yucatecan option is Bruce W's pick, Cheen Huaye – "spicy, sassy, and looks damn fine in a skirt (steak)." His amor is for the Tacos de Cheen Huaye: "three little flat steaks on the tortillas with onion, some peppers and plantain... yes, plantain. That's Yuca style!" Of course no hot taco roundup could be complete without gettin' a little freaky for fish. Gina H was Southern California dreaming after a feast on fried mahi-mahi tacos at Surf Road, resulting in a return visit the following day. In fact, she believes they might just "put crack in their cilantro lime sour cream sauce." Well amigos, it just doesn't get more special and secret than that.
