Taco joints are a dime a dozen but until recently finding one with actually good food was a bit of a challenge. Luckily in the past few years newcomers like Dos Toros, Empellon Cocina and now Tacqueria Diane have really changed the Mexican food scene of the city. This tiny little spot in the East Village churns out some incredible tacos and super thin crispy nachos.
I especially love the Al Pastor; rich tender meat seasoned with just a bit of hot sauce, shredded lettuce, roasted pineapple and a flurry of cotija cheese. Taco awesomeness at its' finest.
