Cascabel Taqueria 1542 2nd ave Manhattan, NY


WOW! YES!!!! So fantastic! I had the vegetal tacos (with fingerling potatoes, oyster mushrooms, radishes etc), a grapefruit aqua fresca (SO GOOD!) and it certainly didn’t hurt that the (very attractive and personal/friendly) owner said my chocolate caliente was on him. I drank my yummy hot chocolate on a frigid walk back home and it was so incredible that I almost turned around to get another one to bring to a chocolate loving friend. I didn’t b/c I was running late, but will certainly bring said friend there soon to enjoy the creamy, rich, complex, spicy flavor. This is an AWESOME addition to a neighborhood that really needed a great taco place. I will definitely be going back sooner than later…There’s a LOT on the menu that I want to try. Fresh, funky and fabulous. BRAVO.

UPDATE: Summer 2011: I have to say, this place has gone WAYYYYY downhill since it opened. Lately, the service sucks, the drinks hardly have any alcohol in them (especially for the price) and the tacos are only so so. Not only that, but they’ve started charging if you run out of chips and want more…and they don’t bother telling you that when you ask! They should have stayed tiny!
