new york city


In New York City’s Jackson Heights neighborhood, at Los Amigos Thin Crust Pizza, you can get a pie that’s sorta like al pastor, but not really. They’re on Facebook.


On the ground floor of the Empire State Building in Manhattan, Tacombi Tacos Chef Oscar Hernandez serves fish tacos two ways. Looks legit!

NYC pochos: Have you been to this place?


When Otto Cedeno moved from Orange County to NYC for film school, he missed the California tacos he grew up with. That’s why he opened his own joint, Otto’s Tacos. [Video by Juan L. Espinal.]


The folks who work at Sidewalk Tacos feed the people of New York City, but they have LA MIGRA on their minds. [Video by Elliot Levy, a Belgian living in New Ork.]
