Los Hamptons Edition: LA HACIENDA 48 Jagger Lane, Southampton, (631) 287-6814

Located across the street from the “Fresh” supermarket, La Hacienda is a no frills kind of place. As my girlfriend puts it, “La Fondita has a cute ambiance and La Hacienda is all about the food;” food and drinks are served on Styrofoam plates and cups (nuff said). They were recently mentioned in a NY Times article along with other restaurants in the area and I think this has brought in a new breed of customers. When we showed up the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed by the amount of people lined up to chow down.

What to get:
The tacos are delicious. All I can say is it’s the best tongue taco I’ve had so far in the state of New York. The carne asada tacos are better here than at La Fondita, the meat is good and the tortilla is not dry. The asada torta ($5.00) is decent, the bolillo bread which is often used for this Mexican sandwich was soft and smooth.

What NOT to get:

Hard shell tacos, you the douche with no neck driving the Porsche, you made it this far so please don’t be a schmuck and order hard shell.

Dude, you're literally eating tacos as far from LA as is humanly possible without leaving the country. I don't think Maine is further than the Hamptons. Especially in psychological distance!

Hey Nick... is that hard taco, Porsche driving comment aimed at me? So what if we drive a Porsche and happen to have a (not-so-) secret fettish with crispy tacos?!

Dude, you were in the Hampton's on a taco tour and you didn't invite us along for the ride?
>>>very sad here! and hungry...

Hope to see you and the lovely lady soon.

Univited Commentary:

Y que tienen de mal los tacos dorados??? La unica forma (o segun yo) en que vale la pena comer una tortilla de maiz es si esta bien frito.

Aparte de eso... ooo.

There's a noticeable difference between the hard shell tacos from "Taco Bell" and taquitos, flautas, or dorados. Of course the latter is fine as for the first example... no comment.
