    For my main course I had the Chile Relleno,delicious & vegetarian👌🏼 Appetizer I shared the quesadilla de flor. And to drink I had the Pepinada which I highly recommend if you like spicy cocktails.

    serving tasty trios of tiny tacos, along with some very reasonably priced cocktails (most are $12 and under!), Tacuba, Julian Medina's newest venture, is a sort of Toloache-lite

    Authentic Mexican food - don't let the plain exterior fool you, place is very well decorated (fancy!) on the inside. Solid guac, great margaritas, lots of creative options.

    Tasty food to share, fresh drinks, attentive service, and a more casual/young vibe than sister rest. Toloache. Perfect location for groups in nice weather when they'll open up the front doors/windows.

    Tasty authentic tacos! They are small but so fresh and full of flavor. We had the quesadillas with the Suadero & Calabazita tacos. Just enough to leave room for desert.

    octopus & chourizo tacos are top notch - served on housemade corn tortillas. micheladas and margaritas are fantastic.

    Awesome Mexican spot that's great for birthdays and group dinners. Their Piña Para La Niña is a fun drink that comes in a pineapple if you're sharing with someone (or just want to drink for 2)

    The octopus/chorizo tacos were great and the frozen margaritas are strong and delicious! The manager was so friendly and gave our table a round of sipping tequila since we were celebrating a birthday!

    New Mexican restaurant in Hell's Kitchen. Creative cocktails and awesome guacamole. Tacos are a bit small, but packed with quality ingredients.

    other than the fact that they don't have happy hour options (who does that in midtown?) this place is yummy. try the mezcalita de pena and the carne asada tacos w cheese (always cheese).

    Excellent food and after work bar scene. Great new addition to the neighborhood. Recommend the enchiladas de pato, any of the ceviche or the pollo tacos!

    The spicy kale is SOO good. Homemade tortillas and carnitas is the way to go with the ceviche trio sampler to start

    A fun offshoot of the nearby Toloache. The best bet for margaritas in Hell's Kitchen.

    Carnitas was excellent. Just make sure the chicharron is on the side.

    Honestly this place just okay. The elote was weirdly sour, the avocado fries were boring, but the pulpo (octopus) tacos were really really good. So I'm conflicted. Come here if you're bored.

    We wanted to eat a normal sized meal but the tacos a ridiculously small and expensive. For $11 you get 3 bug sized tacos...
