last week, josh and i snuck away for a little lunch date and tried out los tacos no. 1 down at chelsea market. every holiday season we try to pack in a few extra dates into the busy season since we love sharing experiences together (even simple ones like sharing a taco!) over big christmas gifts. so in the spirit of keeping alive our 12 dates of christmas (it’ll probably only be like 6 this year just because HI KIDS!), we figured a taco adventure was fitting!
we had walked by los tacos no.1 at chelsea market so many times but hadn’t ever given it a try. josh has a friend who knows the owner and told him about a secret off-menu item called the queso taco (where they make the tortilla out of cheese on the grill). to be honest, i mostly went for the mexican coke (i hadn’t had one of those since europe and gosh it was good).
if you go, josh’s favorite taco was actually the especial with adobada/pork. we also ordered the cactus taco which was super spicy (we are wimps) but fun to say you’ve tried cactus.
for all you new yorkers who love mexican food, where do you go in the city?! one of josh’s favorite spots is still a place in his old neighborhood from his columbia days called la taqueria y fonda (on amsterdam avenue between 107th and 108th streets). it’s a little spot where if you walk inside just for a few minutes, your coat will seriously smell like the grill for weeks afterwards. if you know any spots where tacos are out of this world good, please share!!!
(merry christmas!!!) ;)
