Otto's Tacos Restaurant Review

: The name doesn’t exactly scream authentic taqueria, but one can eat very well at this diminutive East Village taco shop. The menu is short: you can get tacos with chicken, mushrooms, shrimp, steak or pork. Opt for the latter and you won’t be disappointed. Stuffed with meat, cilantro and onion, the tacos’ secret flavor weapon is the tortilla --- the homemade corn tortillas are soft and chewy and add a nice texture. Pair them with a side of crispy masa fries and you’ll leave satisfied.
