The Taco Of The Town: NYC’s Five Best Tacos

Here in New York, we take tacos seriously – especially during summertime. There’s something about rolling that soft tortilla up, drizzling lemon over the white shrimp and seared talapia, covering it in guacamole, and dipping it in a fresh coat of rice and beans.  But no – not all tacos are created equal. We live in a world where tacos are sometimes soggy, made with stale tortilla shells, and filled with unidentifiable pieces of meat. This is unacceptable. And thankfully, New York’s five best taco places agree. Dig in, compadre.

The Plantain & Chorizo Taco from Los Feliz: the  sweet and savory mother of all tacos, stuffed with green plantains, Spanish chorizo, black beans, portobello mushrooms, garlic cause, crispy panela cheese, and truffle oil. 

The Brisket Taco from Brooklyn Taco Co: award-winning, and a gift of braised brisket, pineapple salsa,  chilorio sauce, cheese, crème, and red hot sauce for your mouth.

The Fish Taco from Barrio Chino: three fresh tilapia soft tacos, simmered in citrus and marinated in avocado salsa, pickled onions, and culinary genius.

The Potato & Chorizo Taco from La Esquina: packed with cactus, chunks of potatoes, dotted with chorizo sausage, and sopped in their salsa verde. 

The Corn & Poblano Pepper Taco from Tacombi: carnivores’ shocking favorite, stuffed with roasted poblano peppers, sweet corn off the cob, a salty Mexican sour cream, and creamy and grated Cojita cheese.
