Time Out says
Named after the palm-thatched huts typically found on Mexican beaches, La Palapa provides a chilled spot in which to enjoy some North American street food. Founded by Mexican artist and chef Barbara Sibley, this taco bar is one of two branches, situated in the food hall of Urbanspace Vanderbilt.
This venture is the culmination of years of research by Sibley into traditional, rare and ancient Mexican recipes, including some from seventeenth-century convents. At the taco bar, which is open for breakfast and lunch, tuck into authentic regional Mexican cuisine, such as tacos al pastor (like a kebab in a taco), de suadero (with beef brisket) or a veggie version with avocado. Alternatively, grab a burrito bowl or huevos rancheros.
Compliment your meal with something refreshing, like a hibiscus slushy or a horchata iced coffee (featuring cinnamon milk).
La Palapa focuses on Mexico city tacos and authentic regional Mexican cuisine featuring Tacos al Pastor, Mole Negro Oaxaqueno, Salsa Pibil and many other specialities from different regions of Mexico. Salsas and sauces are rich and spicy and fresh ingredients are used. A palapa is a palm-thatched shelter on a Mexican beach where you can relax with your feet in the sand looking at the ocean while you sip an ice cold cerveza flavored with lime and salt, and eat a spicy shrimp taco with salsa guajillo.
