De Mole Astoria

At the family-owned and operated De Mole Astoria, generously portioned authentic Mexican meals and a kid-friendly environment give the impression of dining in someone’s home. Here, barbacoa, or slow-cooked goat, tacos and cecina, or salted beef, tortas are followed by coconut flan, Mexican hot chocolate, and usually, another round.

Meanwhile, at nearby Chela & Garnacha, a must-try drinks menu means you may want to leave the little ones at home. Tacos filled with meats marinated in the owner’s great-grandmother’s adobo rub recipe and drunken beer and pasilla sauce are best washed down with craft beers and margaritas in flavors such as tamarindo and traditional spicy.

For out-of-the-box burritos and tacos, turn to Homemade Taqueria. Fresh corn tortillas come loaded with beef tongue and smoked pork chops, while tortas take it one step further with fillings like hot dogs and ham with pineapple. Maintain some sense of normalcy with traditional Mexican drinks, including horchata and papaya and watermelon aguas frescas.

Los Portales Taqueria

Mexican, $$$
Save to wishlist

To discover why foodies flock to this unassuming Astoria spot, you need only consult the menu, which at first glance resembles that of every other taqueria in town. However, like the customers who came before you, you’ll quickly find that Los Portales Taqueria isn’t your typical taco joint thanks to über-authentic fillings such as pork ear, veal flank, and ham.

Restaurant, Mexican, $$$
Save to wishlist

Mexican fare meets global flavors at Fresco’s Cantina, a boundary-blurring restaurant turning Spanish into a universal language. From the Asian-inspired pork belly with guava hoisin taco to the Peruvian arroz verde to the “Mexico City,” a dessert of fried banana caramel cheesecake egg rolls drizzled with dulce de leche, multiple cultures meet on every table at Fresco’s.

If you’re looking for old boring tacos on #TacoTuesday I need you to get up from wherever you are and walk right off my page!🚶🏽‍♂️⬅️ Get outta here! 😜 But if you’re looking for some INCREDIBLE & damn right DELICIOUS ones, well then check these out from @frescoscantina: On the left you have the La Vaquita Gorda – grilled tamarind marinated skirt steak topped w/ sautéed pepper trio & onions and tropical chimichurri sauce. Right next to it is what I couldn’t get enough of: Pastelon – smashed sweet plantain topped w/ seasoned ground beef, melted mozzarella, lettuce, tomatoes & secret sauce 🙌🏽 The one next to it? Machu Picchu – Peruvian style shrimp ceviche in a tomato cultido topped w/ guacamole & plantain crumbs 🤤 & last but def not least: Cozumel – Crispy Modelo Especial beer batter Mahi Mahi topped w/ honey-jalapeño slaw & fresh cilantro 🤘🏽Queens is literally home to the BEST (and most diverse) food you’ll find in NYC… which is why I simply refuse to leave the borough alone. Make sure you visit @frescoscantina today or any other Taco Tuesday (or any other day in general) for some hands down amazing comida. Also, if you’ve literally read this entire caption, first of all thank you and secondly you should definitely get those tacos now 👀
