Craving some guacamole, tacos, or even house-made churros?  If so, it’s time to check out Downtown Brooklyn’s newest Mexican restaurant, Taqueria, located at 25 Bond St. at Livingston Street.  Food writer Harris Salat and chef Rick Horikke gained inspiration for their new eatery after visits to Mexico City, according to Eater.

Neither Salat nor Horikke are of Mexican descent, but Taqueria seeks to “cook faithful versions of these classic tacos,” as stated by the restaurant owners.  Salat is a Japanese cuisine connoisseur and Horrikke has worked at Morimoto and Nobu, but the two were so moved by the taco stands and stalls from Mexico City that they wanted to bring it back to Brooklyn.

Having collaborated together before at Ganso eateries, the two developed Taqueria’s menu offering options such as pollo asado, stuffed poblano peppers and rajas con papas. The dinner menu also has two vegetarian options and the establishment plans to serve lunch and brunch in the near future.

If these choices sound delectable, experience a taste of Mexico City and head on over to the Downtown Brooklyn spot, where prices start at $9 for two tacos.

Plus, there’s a photo of El Vilsito, an auto body shop that transforms into a taco stand at night, on the wall, according to Eater.
