It came down to the final fifteen minutes, with the winner switching back and forth until the final bell rang at midnight. But it’s official, Downtown’s breakout taco table Mexicali Taco & Co. won L.A.’s Taco Madness showdown early this morning, very narrowly beating out Mariscos Jalisco by only a few votes. Beloved for its asada chopped on a tree stump, salsa bar, flame-grilled meats, vampiros, and cachetadas, Mexicali takes a competition that stacked 32 of the city’s favorite taco spots against each other to duke it out taco-a-taco.
