Bright pink, green and blue walls match the vibrant Cal-Mex grub at this little spot by the Holland Tunnel. Satisfying choices include a grilled-shrimp burrito with smoky chipotle sauce and must-try cazuelitas: airy corn griddle cakes topped with chicken, beef or beans. Forgo desserts in favor of a cool quaff—we like the fresh watermelon juice.
