Fodor's Review

Offshoots of a popular Tijuana taco shop established in 1973 and still going strong, these slim taquerias (the word "pinche" can be translated as "tiny") do fish tacos the west coast way, with lightly battered fish, crunchy cabbage, and a dollop of cilantro crema. The tacos al pastor—filled with succulent pork slow-roasted on a rotating spit, are of a similarly superior caliber, stuffed into warm, house-made corn tortillas and generously anointed with fresh

guacamole. There's another location just around the corner at 227 Mott Street (near Prince) and at 103 W. 14th St.; all these spots get busy at prime meal times.
