Village Voice's Description

Named after the Umbrian saint who loved birds and other small animals, this taquería might be East Harlem's best. You can't go wrong with the antojitos: the potato filled flautas, for example, which come heaped with greenery and crumbled cheese, or the sublime chilaquiles with green sauce-a toss of yesterday's tortilla chips with scrambled eggs. The bigger feeds keep pace, including the quarter-chicken lounging in the pumpkin seed sauce called pipian, and cemitas, big round sandwiches on seeded rolls that constitute a signature of Pueblan cooking.

    Every single time I get off the 6 on 110th, I make a b line for this place. Cheap, delicious, simple tacos. I wish I spoke Spanish cause the staff is mad legit.

    Try their Red Pozole is the best and includes 2 tostadas!
