Only in New York could a place this cramped be this popular. Thrill to the gyrations of several cooks as steaming plates of Mexican food are produced, running the gamut from southern Mexican specialties like chicken in chipotle sauce and chiles relleno, to Cal-Mex burritos and quesadillas. The chocolate-laced mole poblano is particularly fine, and the specials board often includes Spanish-leaning dishes, such as a fish and shellfish stew that might more properly be called a zarquela. And, this obscurely located haunt of Columbia students doesn't flinch when it comes to offering arcane taco stuffings such as brain, tongue, ear, and tripe.
