Hearing about the new Mexican community up on 116th that is now dominant in a formerly Puerto Rican neighborhood, we went to one of the places on 116th (between 3rd and 2nd), La Hacienda.
The food was quite good -- a torta with mole chicken was excellent -- smoky though not spicy -- and their huevos rancheros made most other versions downtown seem utterly bland. Very cheap, cute decor and they apparently have a singer on saturdays and sundays after 4pm.
Anyone else been to La Hacienda? Any other Mexican recommendations that aren't taco carts in this new enclave?
