Fresh Mex

So it seems that all I have reporting on is euphoric food places lately.  Maybe I am famished from all the Zumba I have been doing.  Speaking of Latin culture, last Satruday after the wait at Ippudo was eons long, and meandering the cold city was out of the question, a friend and I went to a little hole in the wall, Dos Torros.  I did not waver because of all the accolades I had read about this place  The simple Mexican flavors had been extolled by some of the harshest food critics, and that's because this place can back it up.  Time Out New York was partisan to the carne Asada tacos, but I decided to give tantamount consideration to other menu options.  So I loaded up on one carne, and one carnitas with a side of guacamole.  Each heaping, overstuffed taco was under $4 and was savory, flavorful and fresh.  The place has about four tables so dine with a friend to dive headlong into the first available table while waiting to order.  Do not worry, you will get over that gaucherie once you settle in and bite into the deliciousness.  And I am sure that person you swiped the table from is long gone savoring their taco.  In addition to the tacos do not abstain from the other menu options like burritos and quesadillas.  Much to your chagrin, own the fact you will soon be the Foursquare mayor.
