San Francisco De Assis Restaurant

1779 Lexington Ave. New York, NY 10029 | East Harlem | 212-427-4440

Location Description:

Named after the Umbrian saint who loved birds and other small animals, this taquería might be East Harlem's best. You can't go wrong with the antojitos: the potato filled flautas, for example, which come heaped with greenery and crumbled cheese, or the sublime chilaquiles with green sauce-a toss of yesterday's tortilla chips with scrambled eggs. The bigger feeds keep pace, including the quarter-chicken lounging in the pumpkin seed sauce called pipian, and cemitas, big round sandwiches on seeded rolls that constitute a signature of Pueblan cooking.
