We’re pretty sure that 4 out of 5
nutritionists New Yorkers will tell you that tacos are essential to a healthy, balanced diet. And there’s nothing better than eating the “real stuff.” Forget the drive-thru grub, we’re talkin’ authentic Mexican fare like tostadas, gorditas, tacos and carne asada. Mexcellent.
Check out our Top 7 Mexican Spots in NY: Best part? They deliver.
#1 Citrico (Brooklyn): Crown Heights has never been the same. If you’re in the market for fish tacos, this is where it’s at. A plump helping of batter-fried fish with home-made blue corn tortilla, pico de gallo, chipotle sauce and cilantro will turn your world upside down.
#2 Mesa Azteca (Brooklyn): Say hello to your new wallpaper. This Bushwick spot has it all – margartias, enchiladas, a Mariachi Band on friday nights… But lets get down to brass tacks. Mesa Azteca hits the spot with their delicious tacos: soft corn tortillas filled with guacamole, cilantro and red onions in escabeche. There’s hope yet.
#3 El Camion (Manhattan): – Hit a speed bump on the Mexican food scene? Chef Jorge Torres cooks up an exciting new menu in the East Village. From Huevos Benedictos to the Hanger Steak with piping hot yucca fries and chipotle ketchup, it’s this type of magic that makes you believe in Santa.
#4 Taqueria Diana (Manhattan): This little slice of Tres Leches serves up authentic San Francisco Mission-style Mexican food. That means you need a lot of structural support for those tacos and burritos. Like that’s a bad thing. Don’t forget to try their famous home-fried nachos with guac, carnitas, beans, sour cream, jalapeños and salsa. Game. Changer.
#5 Mojave (Queens): Everyone has a sweet spot in their heart for brunch. Which coincidentally tastes even better in pajamas. Try their delicious Steak & Eggs w/ sweet tomatilla salsa, tortilla gordita, and roasted butternut squash. This is what you want.
#6 Estrellita Poblana (Bronx): Why stop at the moon when you can go to the galaxies? This Unionport gem doesn’t just serve the yummiest tacos in town, they’ve got mole poblano, chiles rellenos, fajitas, bistec, even a claim to fame for the best Mexican cocktails in the city. Let’s just hope they open up a second location. PleasePleasePlease.
#7 Mexicocina (Bronx): From their trademark tacos with homemade tortillas, chipotle pepper, quesillo and onion to carne asada, this Pueblan hot spot serves it up just like abuelita.
