Address: 234 E 116th St. #1

Most will agree that if you want a damn good taco Uptown, the only place to go is Taco Mix on E 116th. An authentic taqueria in East Harlem, Taco Mix is one of the reasons why Chipotle would never make it in El Barrio. Serving up tacos that look and taste like they would if you were eating in Mexico, this small eatery doesn't need the frills of fancy décor to keep customers coming back. Simple, but flavorful ingredients and cooks that know how to prepare an addictive al pastor are the essentials that make the trip on the 6 train worth it.
