A friend who is originally from Tijuana but now lives in San Diego will be visiting in a few months. His chief complaint is that NYC doesn't have good Mexican restaurant and I'd love to prove him wrong. This is what he wrote :
Menu must have Lengua, cabeza, adobado, carne asada, pollo asado, tripas, horchata, NOT black beans, but pinto/refried and not gooey yellow rice, Crema Mexicana not sour cream, cotija cheese not yellow.
To my surprise I didn't find too many places that matched.. I'm looking for some good recommendations that we can try... thanks
