While sports fans relish the arrival of basketball's March Madness, we here in the food world are cheering for one of our favorite annual throwdowns: L.A. TACO's Taco Madness.

The voting has officially started on what's become a great spectator sport in the city. This year the folks at L.A. TACO, a blog which focuses on the taco culture of Los Angeles, are pitting 32 great tacos against each other in a bracket-style tournament.

The winners will be announced on Friday, April 4. And there will be a full-blown taco fest at Grand Park on Saturday, April 5.

This year, there's a Santa Monica taco battle between Tacos Por Favor and Tacos Punta Cabras. And last year's Taco Madness winner, Mexicali Taco & Co., is up against newcomer Colonia Taco Lounge.
