so i've heard much about this taqueria in corona, queens--el grano de oro 2000--from reading these posts (mainly eric eto's) and the chowhound book. robert seitsema of the voice also said it was very good.
anyhow i was out in queens the other day and decided to finally try this place. i had the address handy (96-15 roosevelt ave) and was all psyched to eat some great tacos when...i couldn't find it.
the storefront at (what appeared to be) 96-15 roosevelt was some other taco joint, but not of the same name (which i can't recall right now). it had a bright orange exterior and was brightly lit inside.
so what gives? is el grano de oro 2000 closed? did it simply change names? is it under different ownership? or did i somehow miss it altogether (definitely a possibility, given how densely packed the area's businesses are)?
btw i did not get to try the tacos at this new place, b/c my impatient friends decided that if we weren't going to find this el grano de oro place, we were going to eat thai--so we ended up at sripraphai.
