I don't live in the Upper East Side anymore, but I have several friends that do so I still visit quite a lot and try to stay in the know. Over the last few months I was hearing a lot about Cascabel Taqueria. So yeah most of the people talking about the place were North-easterners or Europeans, but one of the ravers was my friend who had lived in Texas for several years, so I decided I had to check it out.
After Glen at the Met we were hungry and since we were in the neighborhood I suggested we try this place out. I wasn't disappointed.
the watermelon margarita came highly recommended and it was refreshing (but expensive)
but the tacos were amazing (steak tacos)
I mean look at this...
The steak tacos were amazing. We also had guacamole, which was very good (my friend said it was much better than Rosa Mexicano table side, but I don't know if it beat mine) and came with tostadas.
