At the good suggestion of a poster; a discussion about my favorite Mex place in Sunset park. Xochimilco. Located at the corner of 45th and 5th, across the street from the far more popular Tacos Matamoros,
Taco Matamoros does deserve most of the praise, but for me Xochimilco is even better.
I have had wonderful stuff here; English skills are often zero, decor negative, and it can get a bit dirty. Still I have found the food to be better.
I find most thing to be fresher, better spiced, and more home cooking. Not surprising since there is only 6 tables and far less crowds. The soups in particular are standouts; I have had almost everyone, and not yet a bad experience. My favorite being the mole. You can grab a corner table and sit and watch the world go by.
As I have posted before, its a great place to come after watching the sunset from the park a block away; which will remind you why Sunset park got its name. One of my favorite parks in the city, both for a wonderful view and people watching.
The link is a set of pictures I have taken in and around the park.
