Profile

This low-key taqueria—with exposed brick walls, a dark-wood wraparound bar, and loft-height blue ceilings—serves a straightforward yet standout menu of Mexican classics, along with a wide selection of tequila. Chunky house guac, presented in a stone bowl, accompanies a trio of long, crispy flautas filled with a spicy paste of chorizo, sour cream, and coriander, and sprinkled with mild queso blanco. A superb, slow-roasted half chicken with tender, just-crispy skin arrives atop a pile of limes meant to be squeezed on top for a welcome zing. It’s worth noting that when cheese is used at all, it’s usually as an accent; this may not be the substantial, hangover-curing grub Williamsburg residents are seeking on a Sunday morning, but the more subtle offerings here are a refreshing change from the city’s typical, heavy Mex and Tex-Mex fare.
