La Fruta Feliz

Interior MexicanEastUnder $10 First Plates 

The barbacoa is top notch, while the picadillo is mind-numbingly good, made from minced – not ground – beef. What sucked us in originally was the promise of chivo (goat barbacoa), which melts in your mouth with intensely good flavor and isn't too gamey. The carne guisada is tender and smothered in a rich, beefy, comino-kissed sauce, while the pork carnitas are tender and unctuous. When it all settles out, La Fruta has vaulted into rarified territory as one of the best taquerias in town.

Interior Mexican, Tex-MexSouthUnder $10 First Plates 

This tiny hole-in-the-wall tortilla factory churns out fresh corn and flour tortillas throughout the day. But they also serve simple Mexican home cooking – like nopales con puerco, carne deshebrada, and picadillo – in tacos, gorditas, or plates with beans and rice. Don't leave without a container of one of their splendid salsas.
