De Pollo (chicken): Start here. Casa Villa’s de pollo taco is remarkably moist and flavorful for something as simple as chicken. A good place to begin because from here things get much more interesting.
For a heartier experience, try a main course which are divided simply into proteins; pollo, carnes and seafood. Two dishes which I’d recommend are the Camarones a la Diabla and the Carne Asada. The Diabla boasts an ample pile of shrimp and onions smothered in a spicy red chili sauce served with rice and beans. The shrimp were cooked perfectly on our visit, offering a pop that belied a pitch-perfect cooking temperature and flavor more mild in spice at first that builds into a nice heat the more its consumed. The Carne Asada, a thinly sliced steak that is marinated and served with rice and beans has a welcome salty finish.
But let's face it. It's tacos that bring me to Casa Villa, and tacos that will keep me coming back. There are many who are thrilled for Villa's success and expansion to the east side, but none more excited than the taco-philes and Stamford dwellers who now have double the Casa Villa pleasure.
