Tacos Nuevo Mexico on 5th Ave. [Brooklyn]


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 on Broome St. [Manhattan]


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.

La Superior on Berry St. [Brooklyn]


Go to La Superior at 295 Berry St. Just stop reading this and go. Oh, and get the beef tongue taco – it’s not chewy, it’s like pork belly – but beefy. Just get it and shut up.

Fast and Fresh on Hoyt St. Over-hyped? [Brooklyn]


Fast and Fresh at 84 Hoyt St. gets toooooooons of praise around town – real ass kissing occurs. I was excited to go there. It’s a side-street, hole-in-the-wall deli where local Mexicans chow down and it’s acclaimed by Californians. Californians always know what’s up! (debatable) When we arrived, we ordered up chicken, salted beef, carnitas and, last but not least, goat tacos!  (goat is pictured above)

Rockaway Taco on Rockaway Beach Blvd [Queens]

Today we have guest a reviewer! Sarah O’Connor. You can read her review of Rockaway Taco below.
When I heard that a few surfers had opened up a taco shack in the Rockaways I could barely contain my excitement. Last weekend I was able to convince a friend to join me after a day in the sun. So we trekked along the boardwalk to 96th Street to Rockaway Taco. The place is a tiny shack; you place your order at a window in the front and eat outside on the patio. The atmosphere is very authentic Californian – my fellow patrons were stretched out enjoying the last rays of the day and drinking 22 ounce Coronas they bought at a nearby deli.

Calexico Carne Asada on Union Street [Brooklyn]


We finally got to try out Calexico Carne Asada in Red Hook. It’s kinda off the beaten path so we rode our bikes over there. Our tacos came very fast and very fresh (unlike our experience at Fast and Fresh).  We ordered carne asada $4, chicken $3(above), and pulled pork $3 tacos.

Calexico on Union St. is Getting Praise


A lot of people are excited about the street-vendor-turned-store-front, Calexico.

Katrina from The Brooklyn Beat writes, “After living in Los Angeles for 4 years, it takes a lot to impress me with yummy Mexican goodness, but I have to say these boys have got it down!”

Mark from from Queens says “Coming from a born-and-bred Austinite (very fond of Mexican food) this place rocks it. No other way to describe it. The food is top-notch, authentic, and affordable.”

Nevertheless, we’ll be trying it out this weekend – along with the much-hyped Fast and Fresh Deli -@ 84 Hoyt St.

Coney Island Boardwalk Tacos [Brooklyn]

coney_island-2The food at Coney Island fucking sucks. The indigenous cuisine sounds like everything you love; french fries, chicken fingers, hotdogs, hamburgers. However, I don’t think any of the grills or deep fryers have been cleaned since the prohibition. All in all, a pretty pathetic offering (sorry, Nathan’s sucks). It took us many trips there before we realized there were tacos to be had! Sadly, the great taco truck we found on Stillwell Ave has now gone missing so we ate tacos on the boardwalk.

El Pitayo: Chicken Taco [Brooklyn]


We stumbled across the street fair on Smith Street last week so I decided to try a taco at El Pitayo . We’ve eaten there before with little success (I can’t remember what I ate) but $3 is worth trying something twice. First off, this thing is huge! The tortilla is almost the size of the plate. It was the end of the day so maybe they were trying to get rid of food; I don’t know. For $3, it’s a pretty frugal purchase. The tortilla is flour (as expected at a Tex-Mex place) but I liked it. The chicken was not hot – blame that on the street-based kitchen. It was also wet and dripping, which I always find obnoxious in tacos or burritos. It was also stewed which can usually yield a pretty flavorful chicken, yet flavorful this was not. The salt was there but other basic seasonings were lacking. Overall, I wouldn’t eat it again but I appreciate the value so I’m giving it 2 sombreros
