Many of the patrons at this modest eatery have roots in Mexico, and they are a discerning audience. To satisfy them, Taqueria Mexico makes spare, elegant tacos with homemade tortillas. Try the toothsome tongue, the subtly fiery tacos de longaniza, or Mexican spicy sausage, and lush, braised pork carnitas, all topped with cilantro and chopped onion.

Also of note, the tacos' various fatter, more extravagantly topped cousins: sopes and huaraches. Tamales are also excellent, as are the daily special meat entrees.
