Los Tacos No 1

Home of one of the most authentic Mexican tacos you will ever find around New York City. Bringing true Mexican flavors to the East coast, Los Tacos No 1 was created by three friends all hailing from different cities wanting to prove the true authentic taste of taco.

Their restaurant, embellished from top to bottom with spray painted street signs, they bring the festive culture of outdoor eating to an indoor urban setting.

Los Tacos No 1's menu for tacos has 4 different variations.

  • Carne Asada (Grilled Steak) -- $3.95
  • Pollo Asado (Grilled Chicken) -$3.75
  • Adobada (Marinated Pork) --$3.75
  • Nopal (Grilled Cactus) -- $3.50

We ordered 3 out of the 4 variations they had, and left the chicken out for another day. I was most curious about how the grilled cactus would taste like. i've never thought eating cactus will be any good. On the contrary, cactus was rather soft and juicy, they tasted like soaked then grilled eggplants.

The cut up cactus on my taco. Not my cup of tea. I would eat another steak taco instead.
