Going mad for East Coast tacos at Mad Tacos in Nelson (Dining out review)
Updated Jan 07, 2021; Facebook Share
Nelson, N.Y. — Fresh Mexican chorizo is a tough find at local restaurants and grocers but appears across the menu at Mad Tacos in Nelson. The crumbled sausage adds layers of flavor throughout the menu with flavors that were equal parts smokey, spicy and fatty.
It serves as the star of the chorizo burrito ($12), marrying together with roasted corn and quinoa, grated cotija cheese, Monterey jack cheese, pickled onions and chipotle aioli. The chorizo brought a spicy punch that was balanced by tangy acidity from the pickled onions. The aioli amplified the sausage’s smoke. The large, well-stuffed burrito was somewhat uneven in its flavors, with pockets of it missing some flavors, but this item shined when you got a little bit of everything when biting in.
