Village Voice's Description

Yes, you can get all the standard hand-patted masa antojitos in superior renditions, including huaraches, sopes, and quesadillas, with fillings that run from squash blossoms to tinga (spicy chicken) to the fried pork tidbits called carnitas, but what really surprised us us at this small Port Richmond café was the range of organ and variety meats available, which blows away anything available on either side of Roosevelt Avenue: surtida (mixed variety meats), lengua (tongue), maciza (cow head parts), buche (pork stomach), chicharron (pork stomach), and--piece de resistance--ojo (cow eyes). Look to the steam table at Taqueria Puebla for daily specials that often include things like fresh green fava beans and fiery shrimp stews.

Tips from foursquare

  • Real Cheap Eats on 11/29/11

    On weekends, try the pancita ($8) with a side of fresh tortillas. "The steaming bowl of spicy orange broth is filled with large chunks of honeycomb tripe that’s tender enough to cut with a spoon."

    The burrito is amazing and for under $10 you can't go wrong
