Phil and I sort of stumbled upon this Mexican restaurant one day when we met up for lunch in the Upper West Side. We initially wanted to get Ella but for whatever reason, it was not open.. so we walked a few blocks and ended up with a happy stomach filled with tacos and burritos.
I got the bistec tacos, which were really good. I was a little disappointed at first that it was a single tortilla since I usually like it when there’s double shell. The burst of flavor in each bite made up for it; at first look, the simplicity of just onions and greens almost fooled me into thinking and questioning if I made a bad decision with my order. But the steak was juicy and the lime just made it all the greater. I’d come here again!
