Tacos Morelos in Jackson Heights is one of the city's best southern Mexican taquerias, somewhat unique in that it offers a full bar—meaning in this case you can choose from a broad selection of tequilas neat or in mixed drinks. There are a number of rare moles, including a red pipian (pumpkinseed sauce), and a series of so-called tacos placeros ("market tacos"), one of which includes rice, cheese-stuffed chile relleno, and roasted pepper strips within its corn-tortilla wrapper. Another beverage recommendation is michelada: a beer of your choice doctored with lime juice and chili sauce. The owners hail from Morelos, just south of Mexico City.
