Good, authentic Mexican in Manhattan?

joeyz | Sep 5, 2007 05:29 PM

Hey all,
I'm looking for (as the title may imply) some good quality, AUTHENTIC-style Mexican food in the city. No "Fresh Tortillas", Caliente Cab Co., or anything otherwise made overly bland for the gringos (like myself, haha). I used to live in Chicago and you could find fantastic Mexican/burrito places all over the city and suburbs. I've pretty much gotten used to traveling to Astoria now, as that's the only neighborhood near the city where I've found consistently good places - one in particular, a deli/restaurant called Tulcingo IV (off the Broadway stop) has been especially great for years. Can't say enough about that place. That said, I'm looking for some more options w/ less of a commute, given that I'm no longer anywhere near Astoria. I also am a fan of the Taco carts on 96th and Bway, and on 14th St. and 8th Ave, though their selection is obviously more limited. Thanks!
