Let’s be real here. If you don’t like tacos of any kind then quite frankly we cannot be friends. Tacos are to me what Peanut Butter is to Jelly, or what water is to your livelihood. It just needs to happen and for anyone living in Manhattan you know that is a fact as we are always on the lookout for the next best thing in Tacos, Tacos, TACOS! One delicious and yummy solution for that is Otto’s Tacos, which just launched its third location last week in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen on 9th Avenue between 48th and 49th Street.
Otto’s, which already has two very successful locations in the East and West Village, in an LA inspired grab and go taquiera, with the food itself being as fresh as can be. Founded by Orange County native Otto Cedeno, the three locations are simple as can be- delicious and filling Tacos and more at a beyond reasonable price. It is a great place to grab a quick bite for lunch, lounge with some friends over dinner, or grab something delicious and filling after all the beer you consumed late one night. Regardless, this is the place you should go to.
The tacos themselves are to die for, coming in varieties of Carne Asada, Carnitas, Chicken, Shrimp and Mushroom for those who don’t eat meat or shellfish. They may look small in size however they are quite filling and tasty with the fresh tortilla placed under the variety of toppings. If you want to come for just the tacos that is fine, however I do recommend trying some of their delicious sides from their incredible Masa Fries with an awesome dipping sauce, Chips with their homemade Guacamole or a classic like rice and beans. Save room in your belly for dessert because their Churros are freaking awesome, fresh and taste great. Overall a 10 out of 10 in my book. Oh and there are Star Wars murals adorned throughout this location. Retro and cool :).
Check out their official site for more information and if you are in either the Hell’s Kitchen, East or West Village you should go and try Otto’s Tacos. Definitely worth the visit.
Happy Eating Everyone!
