Brooklyn Taco Company Restaurant Review

: A misnomer it is; a bad taco it is not. Welcome to Brooklyn Taco Company, which is not anywhere near the hipster borough. Instead, it’s in the Essex Street Market on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. But what’s in a name? Especially when the tacos are this good. The best is the cola-braised pork version, which is like a power chord of bold taste on the palate. The brisket with pineapple salsa and chilorio sauce (a pork sauce that hails from the Mexican state of Sinaloa) is also worth a try, if it’s on the menu. The chorizo and potato taco, usually a winning combination, doesn’t fare so well, as the flavors are muted with too much lettuce and potato.
