Steak, Chicken and Vegetable Tacos
Sue Torres takes her tacos seriously--the taqueria inside Los Dados employs an abuelita ("grandma") who hand-presses the tortillas--but she wants her guests to enjoy eating them. "I like offering lots of options, so everyone can play with different flavor combinations," she says. The sweet Coca-Cola-and-tamarind marinade Torres uses to tenderize and flavor skirt steaks was a discovery she made while traveling through Oaxaca. "Mexicans love Coke. They'd offer it to me at breakfast," she says.
