Midnight snack

Sometimes after a night on the town with friends and cocktails I get the munchies...BAD!!  What am I usually craving in the wee hours of the night or early morning??  TACOS!  I love to stop on over at Calexico for a delightful Michelada (Tecate beer, hot sauce and lime juice) and some tasty tacos.  My favorites are the Chipotle Pork, Carne Asada and Tofu Asado.  The quesadillas are AMAZING too and that crack sauce on the side is so good you will be asking for extra! I would also recommend the salad with added tofu for a semi healthy option. So don't go to bed hungry, have a taco!

Pachanga Pattersons (Astoria, Queens)

In this sweltering heat (103 degrees in New York) I like to keep to a VERY VERY strict diet of margaritas and tacos. So when I'm feeling like I need to stay on track with my taco intake, I head directly to Pachanga Pattersons in Queens.  The Summer Smoke Margarita (Crema de Mezcal, Lime Juice, Basil, Salt Rim) and Moo Shu Duck Taco (with sriracha hoisin, cucumber and radish) really put some pep back into my step after a long hot day in the big city.
