Mexican food on Knockerbocker Avenue in Bushwick

I happened to be on this street yesterday, and between Suydam and Flushing there are a lot of Mexican restaurants. I stopped in one, La Tigre Del Norte between Suydam and Starr, and got two tamales to go (I was late for something). The tamales were pleasant, although not stellar (my current favorite is Speedy's on 4th Avenue between 59th and 60th Streets in Sunset Park); nice and hot in corn husks, one red and one green, although neither was terribly spicy. The place looked promising, though, and there are, as I said several more on this stretch that look interesting. Wondering if anyone has tried any of the taquerias in this area and has any thoughts. If a get a chance to go back there, I intend to work my way down the street and report back, of course.
