Who Makes the Best Taco in Lynwood?—You Get To Decide
The Second Annual Lynwood Food Competition—and its popular “Taco Festival”– will be held Saturday October 13 on the front lawn on Lynwood City Hall.
Last year’s competition was the Tamale Festival which was won by Delicias Oaxaquenas.
Come hungry because it will be a day of sampling delicious tacos by some of Lynwood’s best taquerias and restaurants.
“It’s a great event for the entire family with great food and live entertainment,” said Mark Flores, who directs the city’s Recreation and Community Services Department.
Local participating restaurants will be judged on their very best traditional and non-tradition tacos. Come hungry as vendors will be selling their novelty items and a variety of tasty tacos will also be available for sale.
If you have ever wondered about the origin of the taco, one theory is that it dates from the 18th century and silver mines in Mexico—where the world “taco” referred to the little charges wrapped in paper that they would explode in the mine.
The first references to the taco as food were in the late 1890s in Mexico. And one of the first types of tacos described is called tacos de minero—miner’s tacos.
The taco has come a long way since—with all sorts of different combinations that are always delicious.
We look forward to seeing you on October 13—the festivities start at 11 a.m.!
