Manhattan – East Village
215 Ave A (bet. E. 13th and E. 14th Sts.)
Manhattan, NY 10009
This Alphabet City hole-in-the-wall is known for serving up authentic Mexican home cooking that even a Californian could love—like $2 tamales and chile rellenos, $6 burritos, classic tacos filled with chorizo, carnitas, beans and rice, horchatas, agua frescas, Mexican Cokes and a selection of Mexican beers like Modelo. The tiny storefront (which doubles as a grocery store) has limited seating, so get your order to go and enjoy it in Tompkins Square Park.
