Jon and I visited “El Amish” for the first time a few weeks ago. I’ve been wanting to try it because many of my friends on Twitter rave about it, and The Quest for Zest wrote an article about it, as well. We were not disappointed. They serve only tacos, making it Fort Wayne’s only taqueria. The tacos offered include lengua (tongue), al pastor (spit-grilled pork), asada (steak), buche (pork stomach), and chorizo (spicy Mexican sausage). Jon chose lengua, buche, and asada. I chose lengua, al pastor, and asada. I was being a bit adventurous when choosing the lengua taco. Jon loves them and I really want to love them, but alas, I can’t get over the fact that I am eating tongue. That small snafu aside, we loved the place. The al pastor may be the best taco I’ve ever eaten- extremely flavorful and tender. Before bringing out the tacos, they serve up several varieties of salsa, along with sliced cucumbers and radishes. Jon and I tried them all and were impressed, though one of them was so hot I had to drink an entire glass of water before the burning subsided.
Tacos Arandas “El Amish” is located on broadway, south of downtown Fort Wayne, next to Mad Anthony Brewing Company. You can find them on Facebook.
