High-End: Takito Kitchen has a wide variety of elevated tacos, from crispy fish on a hibiscus tortilla to lamb chorizo with Brunkow cheese, but the latest taco tips the scale at $20. The Wagyu steak taco wraps grilled meat, foie gras, truffled mushrooms, Parmesan, Urban Till arugula and smoked cayenne in a black garlic tortilla.
Low-End: There is no shortage of $2 tacos, from old favorites in Pilsen to the endless vendors at Maxwell Street Market. But for our money, it’s L’Patron. The bright-green Mexican restaurant offers a nice selection, from flavorful al pastor to tender lengua as well as traditional carne asada and poblano rajas.
