NYC Tacos: Don’t Try To Be Healthy at Pinche Taqueria, Order Nachos Instead

January 27, 2009

Sometimes it doesn’t pay to try and eat healthy.  After a greasy late night meal my heart was begging for something unfried at lunch the next day.  I hadn’t eaten at Pinche Taqueria’s second NYC outpost on Lafayette and Bleecker, so I decided to stop in for a Taco Salad, and of course, an al pastor taco.  Good thing my friend ordered nachos because it was the chips and melted cheese that saved the meal.  Don’t forget, this location of Pinche Taqueria is open until 4AM Wednesday through Saturday.
