Jalisco Tacos (Mott Haven, South Bronx) second report

korgy | Feb 14, 2004 03:14 PM

Dropped into JaliscoTacos again to verify my previous report - (and i misspelled it last time).

While my description of the interior was a bit romanticized - (the jukebox is not from the 60s, it is in fact a CD player jukebox, but indeed filled with Mexican singers), my second tasting of the enchiladas was even better than the first.

i was going to try something else - but i kept thinking about those damned enchiladas smothered in molé sauce. so i ordered them again.

MMMMM. 3 cheesy enchiladas, laying beath a mound of mole´sauce and grated cheese and cilantro and lettuce (nothing special about the preparation) in a time-clock puncher's takeaway aluminum plate. nothing gourmet or elaborate, but the enchiladas were just GOOD. you even have to ask for hot sauce on the side.

nothing elegant or even homey about this hole-in-the wall, but you can sit and stare at the aztec kitsch onthe wall, or the romanticzed cardboard paintings of native mexican "indians" preparing to fight the white man.

i don't expect anyone to chick it out, but it would be great if someone did ...

Jalisco Tacos
214 St. Ann's Avenue (off 138th Street)

take 6 local train to Brook Avenue - one block over and half a block east. actually, by car, it would be very easy from the Bruckner Expressway.
