Hidden Gem: Chando's Tacos


I hit the jackpot recently when I visited Chando’s Tacos on Arden Way, a teeny family-owned establishment that’s creating quite a buzz amongst local foodies. Served up on excellent, fresh corn tortillas, Chandos’ tacos are topped with lots of chopped white onion and cilantro, a big dollop of housemade guacamole, and adorned with soft grilled green onions. There are six meats from which to choose for your taco, including the pork adobada, cooked on an upright rotisserie with big slices of pineapple; and the delicious, tender chicken, marinated in achiote and citrus juices and char-broiled to order. Chando’s also makes a fantastic, just-spicy-enough pico de gallo. www.chandostacos.com
