El Paso Taqueria information
There are three of these fantastic Mexican joints around town, all of them in upper Manhattan. The one in East Harlem has a garden, and a pretty main room with azulejos (tiles). The original El Paso Taqueria is a few blocks south. The newest one, at 116th St in Harlem, offers the same authentic Mexican food as its sibling locations: fresh flautas (long, thin stuffed tortillas), bangin' burritos and a variety of chicken, pork and beef mole dishes that are muy, muy, muy bueno.
