When I think Upper Eastside, I think Guggenheim, Gossip Girl, and Park Ave. Well, let me throw in a taco truck into the mix. Paty’s Taco Truck is located on the corner of 86th Street and Lex (usually parked on the northwest corner) and it’s the real deal. I know Paty has been at this corner for some time now, but due to the economy and the winter I finally got around to going there WITH a camera in hand. The menu consists of tacos, huraches, quesadillas, burritos, tortas, tostadas and sopes. BUT, this is a taco blog, and here it is.
What to get: Hands down carne asada tacos. The meat was tender, not greasy, I wonder if at one point in the process they steam the meat. It’s topped with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes; I am not usually a fan of lettuce on tacos but I made the exception this time. I have to admit that it’s been a while since I had a good taco and Paty’s serves a good taco.
This photo doesn't do the taco justice.
