El Paso Taqueria
This venue is closed.
You’ll find much more than tacos and tamales at El Paso’s three Manhattan locations. Yes, the classics are accounted for, prepared daily with ingredients imported from the motherland with as much reverence as anything else on the menu; but El Paso’s roots run deep. Chilaquiles, a comforting mid-day meal of tortilla chips and meat smothered in green tomatillo or red Guajillo sauce, topped with onions, crema fresca, and Cotija cheese for a satisfying rendition of this centuries old Mexican staple. The menu runs the gamut from brunch and vegetarian selections like enfrijoladas, a savory blue corn tortilla wrap, and Huitlacoche, a quesadilla stuffed with the mushrooms. The restaurant’s most popular dish is molcajete Acapulqueño, grilled skirt-steak and a grilled chicken breast stacked on a smoked cactus pad with a sprinkling of house-made chorizo, all served in a warm stone mortar.
Molcajete Acapulqueño (for two), $29; Huitlacoche, $11; Tacos Al Pastor, $9 (order of 3)
