Reyes Mezcaleria

It's a tough call between the wild shrimp and the fried Chesapeake oyster with Veracruz salsa, but we gotta go oyster since it's so unique. If they're out when you visit though, go for the shrimp, tingled with pickled tomatillo and lime aioli. 821 N. Orange Ave., 407-868-9007, reyesmex.com

Saint Añejo Mexican Kitchen

Try the trio of mole tacos, which the menu calls "fork tacos" (LOL). Three corn tortillas are topped with marinated chicken generously slathered with a reddish mole, sprinkled with queso fresco and chopped scallion, and sided with a bowl (not a few – a bowl) of blistered jalapeño slices. 5248 Red Bug Lake Road, Winter Springs, 407-636-3600, saintanejomexicankitchen.com

Tacos El Rancho

Say yes to lengua tacos: buttery-soft cubes of beef tongue with onions, cilantro, tomatoes, cheese and sour cream layered atop two soft tortillas. Multiple locations, tacoselrancho.com

Tako Cheena

While we patiently wait for the new location down the street to open, we'll munch on one of the innovative fusion-flavor folds Edgardo Guzman's team has dreamt up. Late-night patrons happily scarf the spicy-sweet Korean beef taco, filled with bulgogi, kimchi and cilantro. 932 N. Mills Ave., 407-757-0626, also 4241 N. John Young Parkway; mytakocheena.com


Taquería L.A. Tacos

"Califas-style" street tacos have never looked better. Taquería L.A. Tacos fills up the gas station parking lot where they stay by serving tacos with carne asada, chorizo, lengua, tripa, buche and our favorite – sweet, red-tinged al pastor pork with onions, cilantro and a tingly lime salsa wrapped up in handmade tortillas. 1404 E. Silver Star Road, Ocoee, 407-715-9496, facebook.com/vamonosreciocompa
