Rockaway Taco, sheltered from the hot sun, and telling my boos the goings-on of the past week. I also got a round of the Hongos tacos since my dining companion had never tried huitlacoche. It's a fungus that grows on corn, you can get it fresh in Mexico, but only canned in America. It has a similar taste to mushrooms and is paired with wild mushrooms in the tacos. I've had it out on Roosevelt Ave where they're obviously not as done up as the ones here.
By the way, I hear the Mercadito Avenue B is now open for lunch and I spy a torta that needs to be tried on their menu.
100 7th Avenue South @ Grove Street
*Full disclosure* I was invited to come eat at Mercadito right after returning from Mexico. I only accepted this meal because A) I did want to try out their food after missing numerous friends' dinners there over the past years and B) I'm a broke grad student. Don't judge unless you want to contribute to my tuition. Yes, this dinner was gratis, but it doesn't affect my opinion and I'd happily get a meal there again.
