Dug this old thing up from Oct. 22nd 2009. We’re talkin’ the renovated Tacos Nuevo Mexico at 489 5th Ave, Brooklyn. Park Slope? Sunset Park? I dunno.
Barrio Chino at 253 Broome St. in the Lower East Side is quite good. The wait is long and the tables are tiny but the food is awesome. DO get the fish tacos for $8. DO also get the Jalapeño Margarita. DO NOT get the Habanero Margarita unless you think Phall Curry goes down like ice cream.
I’ve been going to Los Pollitos II in Park Slope for many years now. Not because it’s great but because there isn’t any real competition close by (Mezcals is slop, in my opinion). Well, it was time to try their tacos as it’s been a while since I had them. I ordered 1 shrimp ($3), 1 pork ($2.25), and 1 chicken ($2.25)
It’s been a few years since we ate at Mexicana Mama Centro on 12th St. I remember it was overpriced for Mexican but I didn’t remember how the food was (that should have been the first clue). Since the place is usually pretty full and it’s a little expensive, I figured it had to be decent.
I ordered the Taco De Puerco: “three corn tortillas filled with chile roasted pork, chihuahua cheese and black beans, served with mexican style rice and avocado” for a recession-neglecting $14.25.
