Taco Loco: Mexican Street Food from Scratch

A journey of discovery through one of the most exciting and unexplored street food cuisines, featuring 34 delicious recipes alongside stunning travel photography

Taste freshly deep-fried totopos standing beside a wobbly stall in one of Mexico City’s chaotic street mercados. Eat the mysterious dish barbacoa—a goat buried in the ground with glowing coals, a crucifix, and a bottle of mezcal. Jonas Cramby takes the reader on a journey to create simple Mexican dishes at home, from antojitos (small dishes) to dulces (sweets) and bebidas (drinks) and, of course, the Mexicans’ favorite—tacos.
