This handsome taquería-decorated with pictures of the Virgin of Guadalupe and Aztec motifs-sits on a burgeoning strip of Mexican groceries and cafés on the border between Sunset Park and Borough Park near Greenwood Cemetery. The consommé de chivo (goat soup), big hunks of meat in a brick-red broth, is unsurpassed, with the starch component provided by grains of broken rice. The chicken enchiladas in green sauce are also particularly recommended; three to an order and smothered in cheese. Only the lengua burrito didn't fly-an ungainly combo of southern Mex and Tex-Mex that must have sent the cook mixed signals.
