A new food joint has opened up on the Lower East Side of New York, a haven for late night snacks, fried food, and quick bites that sop up all the cheap vodka you’ve been throwing back. Taquitoria, on Ludlow street, only serves taquitos, but since that's all they do, they do it damn well.
Taquitoria has quite the résumé: its owners/chefs worked at Restaurant Marc Forgione, and are dedicated to quality ingredients and creating kick-ass street food taken up a notch. After sampling tons of different varieties, they settled on a yellow corn tortilla, twice fried to surround fillings made from Bell and Evans chicken, brined in secret spices, or short ribs from Creekstone Farms. Oh, and don’t forget Berkshire pork, topped with Cholula.
All I can say is, I'm very glad I’ll be drinking on the LES this weekend, and I know exactly where I’m getting my snack for the train ride home.
