It no longer takes an infuriating expedition to find a good taco in New York City. We might have to dodge a couple of Chipotles, stomach a mediocre enchilada or three, and transfer on the subway twice, but that just makes it all the better when you arrive at one of the city's finest taquerias. There are places to go for proper al pastor, suadero, and tripa. There are legendary taco carts that only come out at night. And there are salsas that will do more damage to your nervous system than a bump of coke. With all of the game-changing tortilla factories, cooks recreating their families recipes and riffing on the classics, and haute chefs hanging up their tocques to try their hand at the humble tortilla, you’re never far from a fine taco in the Big Apple.
