mexican in hell's kitchen -- tiny authentic place

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of finding a restaurant I'd read about a few months back on these boards somewhere. I made the mistake of not writing down the name, but it's on 10th avenue between 47th and 48th. It's a deli/grocery that sells lots of Mexican stuff, but in the back has a semi-hidden area where you can get Mexican food as authentic as it comes in this city -- quesadillas filled with huitlacoche (corn fungus, black in color with an absolutely delightful flavor), flor de calabaza (squash blossom flower, and then there are special dishes made every day that you have to ask for; the day I went it was chicken in pipian (a sauce made with pumpkin seeds).

Does anyone know the name of this wonderful place?
