Must-try Goat Barbacoa

chilerosa | Feb 12, 201208:09 PM

Have you ever had goat? The kind that falls of the bone, melts in your mouth and leaves your palate with a pleasant hint of oregano and spice? If you haven't or were wondering when you'd finally find good barbacoa in NYC, then you must absolutely come to Tulcingo.

Tulcingo's barbacoa is served on Saturdays and Sundays, so plan your trip accordingly. Order one each of salsa verde and salsa roja to drizzle over the barbacoa. The salsas are very spicy and tasty, specially the salsa verde which comes with little chunks of avocado and freshly chopped cilantro. I recommend you walk a couple of blocks to buy tortillas from Tortilleria Nixtamal (www.tortillerianixtamal) to make tacos at home for a wonderful weekend treat.

If it is winter, try champurrado (Mexican hot chocolate with corn dough); theirs is my favorite, a little tangy, low in sugar and milk and high on chocolate. I'm unable to resist buying myself a cup when I pass by.

I do not give Tulcingo 5 stars because the quality of their bread is not consistent (they seem to lose a baker each week!) However, I do recommend their cuernitos (Mexican croissant) and chocolate pound cake.
