Description

Village Voice's Description

We christened this menu "Goth-Mex" (short for Gotham-Mexican) because it adapts regional Mexican recipes for New York tastes. Despite a dearth of chiles, the food is mainly exemplary, with something for everyone. Sopa tarasca is a good way to start -- a smoky black bean soup originally from Michoacan -- followed by a brace of tacos, say, lengua (tongue, long-stewed and supple) and rajas (roasted pepper strips). Other dishes we particularly enjoyed included torta ahogada, a big sloppy carnitas sandwich you have to eat with a fork, and a queso fundido, a Mexican fondue floating excellent crumbly chorizo. Pay special attention to the red-letter specials at the bottom of the menu.

    New York: Superior has New York tacos that your L.A. friends can't knock. You'll be seeing the world through pork-colored lenses after you try these carnitas. - IFC Staff

    This place serves real Mexican fare and shames the wannabes with esquites (espazote-flavored corn) and tacos de rajas (roasted poblano peppers). We love the salpicon, shredded flank steak.

    I finally found the best tacos in W'Burg. I'm a little late but holy crap. I almost wanna cry writing this tip right now. And most importantly, all of my Cali friends approve of this place.
