Tehuitzingo, taco heaven.

I was introduced to Tehuitzingo by my friend E, who knows more about restaurants in NY than anyone else I know.  It is a place I would never have looked at twice.  Virtually every block in NY has a deli, and it wouldn't ever occur to me to go in and order a meal.  Until now.  Authentic tacos for $2.50 each, and beverages straight from Mexico-- even bottled Coca-Cola.  There are no tables, just a narrow room with counters and bar stools. Tehuitzingo Deli & Grocery can be found at 695 10th Avenue, near 47th.

As embassies occupy ground that is technically owned by their country, and not the US, so is Tehuitzingo a wee bit of Mexico.  It is a transporting experience.
