Maya Taqueria is a dependable neighborhood burrito joint tucked into a strip of Prospect Heights that’s better known for artisan coffee joints and sceney restaurants. The cheery, yellow-walled storefront offers standard rice-and-bean-loaded tortillas (choose among grilled or shredded chicken, or steak in a variety of sauces) that may not be up to par with some of New York’s newest Mexican upstarts, but the spot scores points for an atypically wide choice of vegetables (kale, spinach, and hominy, among others), a salsa bar with house-made selections, and juices made in-house. The menu’s star is the craveable super prawn quesadilla—a fat, spicy number that comes dripping with avocado and crema—best with a sweet and tangy tamarind drink to wash it back.
