La Superior Hipster Tacos Williamsburg Brooklyn NY
295 Berry St
Kern C. on Yelp says “Wow. They taste way better than Chipotle,their prices cheaper than Chipotle’s anddd they are seemingly less stingy with the ingredients than Chipotleâ€.
Dude, Chipotle is owned by McDonalds and although itâ€™s fast food Mexican with debatable quality on par with Taco Bell, this statement isnâ€™t saying much. Iâ€™m from San Diego and so it still blows my mind how hard it is to find authentic good cheap Mexican food in New York. If Robertoâ€™s, Albertoâ€™s or King Taco opened up in New York there would be a line down the street like when Five Guys opened in MidTown (at least I hope people would know the difference and that would be the case).
In the meantime you can go down to the soccer fields down in Red Hook, up to the Super Tacos on W96th Street 2/3 subway stop for the tacos, or visit a Mexican grocery deli like Mexico 2000 in Williamsburg. Otherwise you can also opt for hipster Mexican. Hipster Mexican means good Mexican food but not as cheap as youâ€™d get in California or the streets of TJ. La Superior has been around for some time in Williamsburg so it deserves some real props. Tacos are $2.50 each â€“ the Carnitas, Pescado and Carne Asada are all great. While you are out in Williamsburg, be sure to also check out the Diablo truck inside of Union Pool and the burrito cart inside of the Woods are also good. Sorry, I’m not a huge fan of the Endless Summer truck although I know it’s very popular.
