This tiny, much-loved East Harlem hole in the wall has been turning out excellent tacos, tostadas, and tortas since the early 1990s, and it shows no signs of slowing down. (Indeed, after a quarter-century of spit-grilling pork, they opened a second location in Sunset Park’s Industry City.) Wear comfortable shoes, since you’ll be standing at the counter opposite the busy cooks who are slicing and assembling all sorts of variously cooked meats and tortillas, and be careful with the salsas: The roja and habanero versions pack some serious heat. Unsurprisingly, tacos are the thing to get, with the al pastor carved to order from the spit and topped with sliced pineapple. The carnitas are pleasantly salty and crispy, and the barbacoa de chivo (goat) is warmly spicy and musky. For vegetarians, the flor de calabaza quesadilla is a nice option, with sautéed squash blossoms and Cotija cheese spilling out of a grilled corn (or flour) tortilla.
