Calexico Restaurante

122 Union St. Brooklyn, NY 11231 | Soho | 718-488-8226

Location Description:

This small joint is a brick-and-mortar outpost of a popular, Vendy-award-winning taco/burrito truck in Soho and is mainly populated with hipsters chugging Jarritos. There are a few tables, and a window to order from whether you're eating in or taking away. Basically, you‚ve got five filling options: pulled pork, carne asada, pollo asado, tofu, or beans, which you can choose to have in a taco, burrito, torta, or quesadilla. Then there's a salad, grits with tofu or pork, and sides of guacamole and salsa. As California-style Mexican, Calexico gets a lot right. The pulled pork with pickled red onions, salsa, and crema makes for an appetizing combination of rich and piquant. Carne asada is smoky and bovine.
