18 LASVEGASWEEKLY.COM MARCH 612, 2014 PHOTOGRAPH BY PETER HARASTY; FOOD STYLING BY RONI FIELDSMOONEN The mission was simple: Find 10 dishes that debunk the silly old claim that there's no great Mexican food in Las Vegas. We went all out, trying new taco shops, hunting through holes in walls, returning to old faves, asking cooks and friends and family and strangers where we could eat the best of the best. In the end, we found so much soulful, satisfying food, we couldn't even remember why anyone would have claimed otherwise. Fried tripe tacos at Taqueria el Palenque or hangover-killing menudo at El Cordo- bes. Simple, spicy caldo de res at Mariana's markets or a reined take on chilaquiles at Mundo. And on, and on ... Turns out, Las Vegas has amaz- ing Mexican food, and this culinary quest could go on forever. In no particular order, here are 10 of our favorite local dishes … so far.
