Also hit up a tiny little place in Henrietta: El Dorado
(not to be confused with Dorado on Park Ave.)
It's a hole-in the wall spot in a tiny, faceless strip mall, between a weird liquor store and Peddler's bike shop. Which is to say, exactly the right kind of location for a couple of young guys doing a pretty authentic taqueria kind of thing.
Pork Tamale, a Cecina Taco, and a Chorizo Taco.
As you can see, the tacos and such are smallish, but they're very inexpensive, less than $2 each, and they're quite tasty. The tortillas are soft and fresh, the tacos are not loaded down with cheese and sour cream and all that crap, just some meat, some onion and cilantro, maybe a little spray of lettuce. They might dress them up more for you if want, I'm not sure, I happen to like straight-up tacos like they serve them.
The cecina had a nice concentrated flavor, and the chorizo was just the right level of greasy: enough that it was flavorful and moist, but not so much that red oil was dripping off my elbows! The tamales were a little on the plain side, like many tamales I've had in my life, but a dose of the spicy salsa, made with chiles de arbol, perked them right up.
I didn't get a taste of the enchiladas, but my dining companions liked them. There were also raves for the regular shredded-beef tacos. And there are more elaborate platters as well: Carne Asada, Guisado de Puerco, we got to try a little sample of a very juicy and flavorful Pollo en Achiote.
It's mostly a take-out place, they only have paper plates and plastic silverware, but you can eat-in too, there's a counter with about 10 stools. While you wait, you might get some nice warm chips, and fresh salsa. Just watch out for the spice in that salsa de arbol!
