As adamclyde observes, there’s something very different about handmade tortillas. Thicker, chewier, and more rustic, they give a huge lift to the tacos at La Herradura in New Rochelle.

The signature “Herradura” is tremendous, filled with guacamole and strips of deeply flavorful grilled steak. (It joins adamclyde’s pantheon of superior New Rochelle tacos, alongside the carnitas at El Michoacano and Taqueria El Chino and the al pastor at Little Mexican Café.) Herradura’s carnitas is nice and moist, though not the most flavorful. Table salsas—extra-hot fresh chile or chunky roasted-tomatillo verde—are fiery and delicious. And, adamclyde adds, “Big, big points for those tortillas.”
