This Mexican restaurant has two branches, one in the East Village and one in the West, and a well-earned reputation for traditional food made with care and finesse. The three salsas that land on the table are vibrant and clearly homemade. The Mexico City--style tacos are tiny, which is good because then you can order a bunch. The best is the al pastor, which features spiced, caramelized pork and tiny bits of pineapple. The chicken enchiladas are labeled "spicy" but are not. But the tomatillo sauce is tart and fresh, and the chicken irreproachably moist. Look out for their huitlacoche festival in the summer. Other location: 77 St. Marks Place, 212-777-2537.
