Expert review of Toloache Taqueria

An inexpensive but great taqueria in the Financial District.

Toloache Taqueria is an uber-casual eatery that offers seasonal Mexican plates at an affordable price. Wall Street has few inexpensive restaurants offering quality food, so this is a welcome addition to the Financial District.

Food and drink: 

It's Mexican street food but it's created with flair and care. Tortas, tacos and sopas are all featured. The restaurant features Mexican sodas, agua frescas and Mexican hot chocolate. 

Recommended dishes: 

I liked the pepito torta and the beef brisket was also flavorful and filling; the puerco tacos were a hit with my friend. The chocolate-glazed pork was seamlessly combined with chipotle cabbage slaw. 

Ambience: 

This is a very casual eatery. It has 35 seats but most people head here for take out. The crowd is mostly bankers and other locals.

Service: 

Service is pretty efficient. This is a fast food style joint so you expect your food in a timely manner and the waiting staff don't disappoint. 

Location: 

In the heart of the Financial District. The area is devoid of great eateries so Toloache is very welcome. 

Price advice: 

Everything is priced with a tight budget in mind. Most items are between $3 and $9 so dinner or lunch for two won't set you back too far. It's definitely a place for students or anyone looking to beat the recession.
