This place is truly authentic. Thankfully I am by chelsea market often, so I am able to get a taste whenever I want. Highly recommended for anyone who likes great Mexican. I go for the carne asada quesadilla and chips and salsa. It's the perfect meal under $10! 


I was born and raised in a town close to Tijuana in Mexico, and I know these tacos are 100% mexican; this is the real experience you get when you cross the border to Baja (except for the charcoal grill). For Adobada (pork) use corn tortillas, for Carne Asada (steak) order a flour tortilla quesadilla. Sometimes they do have grilled jalapeños and scallions, ask for some of them to the guys serving the tacos.
