My Birthplace : Tehuitzingo, Puebla

The town which is growing in a steady pace both in numbers and in wealth is known for having the best Tacos de Chivo. Its a bustling commercial town, a place where everybody is hustling to survive. There is a sense of routine, like anywhere in the world, but the up and coming youth is changing the rhythm and honestly it’s tuning the frequency out of harmony. It is a visually striking place, where colors, emotions, personalities, and depth intertwine beautifully. The main road is the national highway, where everyday loads of buses come through with passengers coming to or leaving. So many faces, so many lives and I was fortunate enough to have been born here.

OK, this is taco-related. I'm heading into the city to celebrate my birthday in a few days by just hanging out around town, and I would love to know a couple places to pick up some delicious tacos. Please recommend to me a couple places you find to be more than acceptable. Thanks and excelsior!

For chill tacos: Tehuitzingo on 10th Ave & 46th St makes my favorite tacos.

For fancy tacos and fine dining: Toloache on 50th St off 8th Ave. (And Toloache’s @ChefMedinaNYC is a good taco follow on the tweets.)

Zen, this probably got to you late, but it’s good advice for any time!

OK, I just ate for the first time today at Tehuitzingo and all the hype about their tacos: absolutely and undeniably TRUE. The best tacos I've ever had. I will go into the city from CT just for those tacos, no doubt about it.

YES YES YES! Tehuitzingo is far and away my favorite taco place, always the one I tell people to go to in NYC. I haven’t been there in a while, though. I MUST FIX THAT.

Torta Cubana at Tehuitzingo, NYC

Pastrami on rye at Katz’s.

The pork sandwich at Rocket Pig.

Cold turkey and tongue at Bloom’s.

These are probably my three favorite sandwiches in New York City.

But this one just moved to the top of the list…

The Torta Cubana from the new Taqueria Tehuitzingo!

Tehuitzingo Grocery is over on 10th Avenue and sells fantastic tacos out of a little kitchen in the back. Now they’ve branched out and opened a full blown restaurant on 9th Ave. with an expanded menu, including this beautiful beast on a bun.

What’s on it, you ask?

They wrote it down for me…

A deep fried beef cultet (milaneza res)

Beef al pastor

Ham

Head cheese (queso de puerco)

Sausage (salchicha)

Cheese

Sliced avocado

Jalapenos

Lettuce

Mayo

It’s enormous and only costs eight bucks!

This is one sandwich worth making the trip to Port Authority for!!

Oh, and they’re open 24 hours…

Taqueria Tehuitzingo's Pozole

I knew from past experience their tacos are outstanding.

I discovered their new tortas are also amazing.

Now I can share that Tehuitzingo’s pozole is incredible as well!

This is no small bowl of soup…

Pozole verde de cerdo…

Maize madness…

Packed with a porky punch…

The pozole also comes with a side of two tostadas…

All this for eight bucks!

What excuse do you have to not go and try Tehuitzingo’s now?
