Nixtamalito Taco Stand – NYC

Alert! New(-ish) taco stand in town! A-Tooch went to scope it out in the kinda-random area of City Hall, right near the BK Bridge entrance.

Opened not too long ago by the Corona, Queens Tortilleria Nixtamal crew, this stand offers a range of tacos, tamales, nachos and tortas. There’s a handful of tables and benches nearby to sit and enjoy your food. BF and I visited on a summer Friday afternoon around 2 p.m. and there wasn’t a line, but I’d imagine on a regular work day there’s a wait.

We both agreed the nachos were among the best we’ve ever had in NYC. Giant tortillas that never got soggy, melted oaxaca cheese, beans, crema and fresh salsa. The icing on the nacho cake was the fresh avocado and roasted pepepr slices on top.

The tacos were hit or miss, with the al pastor being the standout among the three we tried.

The chipotle tamale was moist and delicious, we even received a second one on the house as a consolation for BF striking out with two other tamale selections that were unavailable.

Would I go back? Absolutely. In a city where taco options abound, this is a pretty solid bet. I also love that there are more options than the traditional range of tacos.

    YUM!! My mouth is watering. You had me at nachos and fresh avocado. The city of Seattle is having this whole legal battle about food trucks/curbside vending, or lack thereof – lame. I’ve decided I’m now going to start planning vacations around cities that have awesome food trucks and cute little stands like this one!!
