Cheap Mexican cuisine has always been a starving-artist staple, and boho Astorians flock here well into the night. Inside the unprepossessing storefront—owned by folks from Puebla—is a menu of carefully made, nongreasy chow. The nachos could be the best you’ve ever chased with an icy Corona. They’re piled high with savory toppings like cinnamon-spiced chorizo, marinated beef, chicken, beans, Monterey Jack and top-notch guacamole. The tacos and burritos are excellent, especially the sublime chorizo versions. For dessert, a fruit batido is as thick and satisfying as an ice-cream shake.
