Lifestyle | Best CT Tacos

I had so much fun highlighting one of my favorite local CT spots late last year with American Express and am SO excited to be back again to promote the newest limited time only Amex dining offer!  Now through May 3rd, new Blue Cash Everyday Card Members may earn 10% cash back at qualifying U.S. restaurants within their first 6 months of Card Membership.  Since we’re heading for spring and warmer weather, I’m highlighting my favorite guac and tacos around — fittingly at, Bartaco!

Bartaco is hands down one of my favorite spots in our town — they’re also located all over CT and throughout the east coast, so you might recognize the name!  This place is an Instagram DREAM and so fun to photograph!  Seriously, do you see how colorful and gorgeous all the food is?!  It’s begging for a table shot!  As soon as we had some decent weather, I grabbed one of my best girlfriends and we headed out for a lunch date — you know the kind where it starts out as a late lunch that turns into a night out?!

A few of my must-try items?  Definitely plan to order a bunch of tacos — I love to mix and match and they all go so well together!  I love the sesame ribeye, roasted cauliflower, shrimp “bahn mi,” and the tuna tatako (and that list is really hard to narrow down).  I also love their amazing rice bowls — the chicken is cooked in a guajillo chili sauce (just the right amount of spice), and it’s UNREAL.  You also NEED a bunch of sides including roasted corn, fried plantains, and a few crunchy salads like the spicy cucumber salad and black bean salad!  If you follow them on social media, make sure to pay close attention before the next time you dine with them!  They have a secret menu that you can usually only hear about by following them−when we were there, we tried the secret pork belly taco.  Seriously, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

Don’t forget, new Blue Cash Everyday Card Members can earn 10% cash back on the first $2,000 in purchases they make at U.S. Restaurants (up to $200) within the first 6 months of Card Membership starting from the date their account is approved. I have a fun year ahead with Amex and can’t wait to share more of my favorite shops and restaurants! To apply for an American Express #BlueCashEveryday Card, enroll here.


A huge thanks to American Express for sponsoring today’s post.
