  • What are your favorite tacos in NYC ? Mine are from la esquina the steak ones, they taste like in Mexico. The street truck ones with the longest line on the weekend at red hook street market.

  • El Bronco is pretty good. Red Hook fields can be good too, but I dig the papusas there more

  • The Fulton Mall in Brooklyn has a pretty good taco stand outside of the old Key Bank. Plus they include guac for free.

  • I like the fish taco at Rock Taco well enough.  Nothing original but holds up to the So Cal via Baja origins it came from and nice to get one out here.  But you can't really call that place a taco stand.

    Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos though is quite good.  Tortillas made fresh PER taco and hot.  The lettuce is ice cold for contrast and the meat (spicy pork, tounge, salty beef!) greasy which is why you have a double tortilla to soak it up.   It's also $2 a taco (for now).
