Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer for the Los Angeles Times. This week he reviews Taco Maria in Orange County run by Carlos Salgado.

According to Jonathan, “the dish that he’s going to be famous for in five years, is his chorizo.” But don’t expect pork; Salgado substitutes meat with “different kinds of mushrooms – some regular button mushrooms, some shitake and some other things – that he cooks down and mixes with chorizo herbs and spices.”
