    Ask for the spicy tomatillo salsa. Some of the staff doesn't know it exists but it does and it's great.

    VERY good Mexican restaurant favored by many foodie Mexicans living in NYC. Tiny space so get here early or be prepared to wait.

    Sit at the bar and talk to the bartender about tequila. If you're lucky he'll do some blind tastes tests to help you find tequila that you enjoy sipping on.

    Hidden gem of a restaurant in the LES. Hangar steak was delicious and the potatoes were next level. Cheesy amazingness. Short rib was good too and guac is a great starter. Solid cocktails.

    Solid mezcal and pulque based drinks and solid Mexican fare make this tiny bar a worthwhile visit. Guac with pomegranate seeds and crab tostada were both solid. I liked the spicy Oaxaca Express.
