Chilaquiles at Tacos Santana

On Saturday, we ventured to Tacos Santana at Keap and Broadway in South Williamsburg. We started with chicken and pork tacos, all of which were quite underwhelming. All the tacos were quite dry, not terribly juicy and the meat was flavorless. However, we also ordered the chicken tinga (chicken marinated in peppers with onions and tomatoes) chilaquiles, and they were the most mind-blowing, delicious food I've had in a long time. The cook fried some cut up corn tortillas in oil, and then covered them with the chicken tinga, a very very fiery green sauce and queso fresco. It arrived steaming hot and didn't get any cooler, but it was so incredibly delicious and flavorful I had to eat it all. The green sauce was spicy and complex, and the whole meal was so hot and spicy I was covered in sweat. Sadly, the tacos did not live up to my favorite taco joint in Brooklyn (El Encanto Mexicano in Greenpoint), but I cannot wait to get back to Tacos Santana for those stunning chilaquiles.
