Maya Taqueria is a Mission-style burrito spot in Prospect Heights (with another location in Park Slope) where you can customize your own massive burrito, bowl, nachos, or tacos. They also make quesadillas that always have exactly the right cheese-to-meat ratio, and they serve big platters with prawns, steak, and grilled chicken as well. Try this place for a quick lunch or dinner, or just get yourself some delivery. If you go that route, be sure to request a bunch of their housemade salsas on the side.

La Esquina Brasserie
Does La Esquina have the best Mexican food in NYC? No. But it is in a secret basement in Nolita, and it’s worth a trip for the experience.
Bar Verde is a vegan Mexican restaurant in the East Village that’s good for vegans, but not so much for everybody else.
El Toro Blanco
El Toro Blanco is a trendy spot that’s Perfect For some Action At The Bar and a slightly less Raucous Party Atmosphere than you’d get a few avenues over in the Meat Packing District. The food just isn’t all that good.
