◊ NUESTROS PAMBAZOS FUERON NOMINADOS CON EL PREMIO DE "BEST GRILLED CHEESE OF 2011" EN PHOENIX NEW TIMES ◊

Grilled cheese sandwiches were generally reserved for greasy-spoon diners and kids' menus. Then we discovered pambazos, a Mexican take on the tired grilled cheese sandwich. At El Nopalito, order a pambazo and be treated to a huge, soft bun that is similar to the telera used for tortas. This bun is then dipped in a guajillo chile sauce that adds spice and a bright red color. Afterward, your electric-red pambazo is filled with salty queso fresco and grilled. (You can request that meat be added if you absolutely gotta have it.) Top your pambazo with some crisp, cool lettuce and salsa of choice, and you have a grilled cheese sandwich that is anything but boring...IR AL ARTICULO

Mexican Independence Day is Sept. 16, the day in 1810 our southern neighbors revolted against the ruling Spanish regime. Much like our own Independence Day, Mexicans and Mexican-Americans celebrate with fireworks, fiestas and food. We're not in charge of the fireworks, but we can tell you where to find some pretty explosive tacos that will put you in a revolutionary mood.
El Nopalito: think outside the taco box with the longaniza, made with a Spanish chorizolike sausage, onions and cilantro inside soft corn tortillas (99 cents each).

While my friends were in Rocky Point for spring break (yes, this still happens after college), me and my man were having some serious taco stand cravings. There's this place I have been meaning to try forever, I tell him. As soon as I said "Hole in the wall mex joint" he was enthusiastically driving in their direction. As soon as we stepped in and we were the only gringos in there, I knew we were in for a treat. The senoras who were working were so sweet to us, brought us out the complimentary chips and salsa, and guided us on what tacos were the best. We each got 3 different ones to try, and my favorite that day was the cabeza (who would have thought!). After an order of guac, 2 drinks, I was almost embarrassed that the bill was so cheap - like I was getting away with some kind of crime by not paying more. It was more than reasonable......LEER MAS

It's probably a cliché, but it's true: Some of the best tacos we've ever had were at a ramshackle roadside stand in Mexico, cooked right up in front of us and served with halved limes the size of large gumdrops. We thought we'd have to swing a return trip to eat tacos that good again, but thankfully, we've found a delicious substitute — and amazingly, it's in central Phoenix.... LEER MAS
