Visitors to Falls Church taqueria Taco Bamba can enjoy the work of two Virginia chefs this month as Bamba's award-winning chef Victor Albisu welcomes Water and Wall's Tim Ma to the restaurant on March 10.

Ma is the first in a line of D.C.-area chefs participating in Taco Bamba's "Guest Taquero Series," which will feature a guest chef-created taco each month along with a one-night-only visit by the chef.

Available through the end of March, Ma's taco is dubbed the "Ma's Crabs" taco and features a corn tortilla with seared Maryland crab, green goddess dressing, spicy slaw and chicharrones for $5. Ma will be on hand to serve customers along with Albisu from 6:30-8:30 p.m. March 10 at the restaurant.

A tentative list of participants in the series includes Mandu's Danny Lee for April; Ripple and Roofer's Union's Marjorie Meek Bradley for May; Jennifer Carroll, of Requin, in June; Scott Drewno, of The Source, in July and The Red Hen's Mike Friedman in August.
