Tacos Matamoros & Sunset Park

BigV | Nov 29, 200901:16 PM     41

Had a very solid meal at Tacos Matamoros in Sunset Park yesterday. My wife and I sampled the tacos, mole poblano, and sopes and all were very good- definitely worthy of a return visit. The mexican hot chocolate was solid but not quite as chocolatey as De Mole's version. The atmosphere of Sunset Park was also a plus- it was like a colder, more congested mini version of East LA. The local grocery stores, meat markets, and bakeries had a lot of items you don't normally find in NY such as white hominy, cotija cheese, pan dulce, and various types of mole. The street vendors sold elote, churros, champurrado, and horchata.

If you like Mexican food, Sunset Park and Tacos Matamoros are worthy of a visit.
