Manolo’s Restaurant 42-26 Greenpoint Ave. Queens, NY 11104 (Sunnyside) 718-383-1110 corner of 47th Street and Greenpoint Ave.
Back in Queens yo, and Manolo’s is definitely representing. I’ll admit from the look of Manolo’s exterior I was a bit apprehensive about going in; I thought this was going to be another faux Mexican experience. I was pleasantly surprised to find they serve caldo de res (beef soup), huaraches, quesadillas, tostadas, chicken pipián (pumpkin seed sauce), mole enchiladas, and of course tacos.
Now, lets get down to business. I ordered a steak and lengua taco. How are the tacos? Good, tortilla was not too dry and not too greasy. They add a little guacamole to each taco, reminded me of Tacos Xochimilco in Sunset Park; the guacamole is always a nice touch. The steak was nicely chopped and moist, I couldn’t tell what kind of cut of meat they use. Regarding the lengua taco, I am very picky with this taco and it was okay, nothing outstanding but okay. I don’t think Poblanos are known for their tacos de lengua.
