Since the Volkswagen plant shut down in the 1980s in the southern Mexican city of Puebla, our own city has sprouted a thousand taquerías like night-blooming flowers, some mounted on wheels parked up and down Roosevelt Avenue from Woodside to Corona. My nonwheeled favorite is in Sunset Park and hails from the state of Guerrero: De Guerreros Taquería. Sure, the list of $2 tacos includes the usual lengua (tongue), oreja (ear), and salt-cured beef cecina, but there's also the Azteca: Like a sleek luxury convertible it features braised beefsteak and poached cactus paddle sticking out the open top, seasoned adroitly with onions and cilantro.
