You can see the hand-pressed corn tortillas being made right behind the counter at this festive Mexican spot on 116th St. And those very tortillas come stuffed with everything from beer-marinated steak to battered fish, while spicy salsas moritas and chipotle cremas add a nice kick. The margaritas, which come in tropical flavors like mango and tamarind, might also cause you to stick around for a while and go up for seconds on all the tacos.
