A-Tooch walked over to La Esquina in SoHo for the first time a few weeks ago to see what all the hype is about.
Amazing that this spot has been open for so long AND is a taqueria (my favorite kind of food) and yet I’ve never been. Now, I know I’m taking a risk in saying this because many people seem to like La Esquina…but once you’ve been here it’s hard to compare. Very hard.
I got the Tinga de Pollo taco — stewed pulled chicken, avocado, cabbage and a chipotle sauce with a kick.
Friend got the Pescado a Las Brasas (Fish) tacos, which seemed to be a popular choice that day.
At a little over $3 a pop per taco these guys weren’t cheap, especially considering they are the size of your traditional corn tortilla taco (aka I need to eat four to be full). Overall, just OK. For tacos that looked very fresh in appearance, the taste wasn’t there for me. One thing that was, though, was this awesome guava juice
