On a stretch of Fulton Street with Senegalese restaurants and bodegas you’ll find a tiny taqueria that packs a nice left hook in Clinton Hill.
The tacos sampled were:
- Cochinita Pibil
- Carne Guajillo
- Pescado (Fish)
Next came the Yucátan style taco, cochinita pibil which is a pork braised in oranges and spices. In the past I’ve had dry cochinita pibil tacos. I know it’s hard to imagine this dish dry. Cochinita’s were tangy and juicy. The toppings were pickled onions, cheese and cilantro.
Finally the fish taco. People ask me for a good fish taco recommendation well here it is. What I like about this fish taco is it’s not cooked in fried batter but is a pan-seared pollock with some cabbage-chipotle slaw. ¡No manches güey!
Tacos are on the pricier side, expect to pay $4.29 per taco, but they are pretty generous with their serving. Clinton Hill is very lucky to have Cochinita in their hood.
