Pinche Taqueria - Closed

227 Mott St. New York, NY 10012 | Soho | 212-625-0090

Location Description:

Claiming to be descended from a taco stand in the Baja Peninsula founded in 1973, this narrow Mexican eatery among the trendy boutiques of Mott Street puts its fish tacos front and center on the menu. They're damn good, and so are the other tacos made with the usual carnitas, pollo asada, or al pastor, crowded with shredded cabbage and topped with a dab of guacamole. Then there's the mulita ('armadillo'), a Cal-Mex contraption with a corn tortilla top and bottom. Everything we tried here was on the money, and we'll hereafter consider this our snacking pit stop in the neighborhood.
