There is no Next Episode of Taco Trip planned.
Since 2000, the city of Atlanta has seen an explosion in their Hispanic population, resulting in some amazing things happening in the food scene. Chef Aarón Sánchez's first stop is at The Original El Taco where he gets down on a fusion of Mexican and Southern cooking. From there, Aarón gets some wild boar at Bar Taco and chorizo at Alma Cocina, before he rounds out his trip at Taqueria Del Sol where Aarón makes tamales from scratch with Chef/owner Eddie Hernandez.
Maine is America's biggest lobster producer, so Chef Aarón Sánchez is rewarded when he shows up hungry for fresh lobster tacos from Zapoteca. From there it's off to Taco Escobarr where Chef Meg Stanley shows off a taco with braised beef in a deep-fried flour tortilla. Aarón finishes off his trip with a stop into the traditional Taco Trio for their famous goat barbecue and a less traditional, but delicious, hot dog from the El Corazon food truck.
Aarón Sánchez tours Boston's booming Mexican food scene, first stopping at El Pelon, where Chef Jim Hoben cooks up his famous spicy salsa paired with a burrito containing fried plantains. Then, Aarón heads to The Rattlesnake Bar and Grill where Chef Brian Poe cooks up spicy Cubano tacos before heading over to The Painted Burro for chorizo breakfast tacos. To round out this East Coast taco trip, Aarón checks out Tremont 647 for their famous tequila scallop tacos created by chef Ymaris Matias.
In California, Two hours north of the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles lies the picturesque beach town of Santa Barbara. Offering up more than just good views, Santa Barbara's thriving farmers' markets provide fresh food to some of the delicious restaurants around the city. Due to its close proximity to Mexico, there's a strong Latin influence in the food scene. Chef Aaron Sanchez surfs in to taste everything from age-old, authentic Mexican recipes to tacos with a twist.
