I used to live up by El Toro Partido and ate there often.
The food was almost always EXCELLENT. You wouldn't expect much looking at it...it's tiny and unassuming... but once I tried it I was hooked. This is not your usual bean-loaded-super-melted-brown-&-red overpriced-gringo-Tex-Mex.
This is open faced corn tacos (ala ones I had in the Distrito Federal) with limes, tomatillo sauce and radish on the side, this is THE REAL DEAL...True Mexican.
The Huevos Rancheros are super, Veggie options are suprisgingly lavished with fresh broccoli and corn.
My favs here are the Tacos Pastor and the Tostada de Tinga...Tinga is soft, stewed chicken meat with onions, on top of a crispy tostada covered in fresh lettuce, avacado and crumbled white cheese...I'm salivating.
Having moved I truly miss this place.
The only thing that comes close is the La Taqueria in Park Slope..but Toro Partido is HALF the price!
