Taqueria El Si Hay
Rule number one at El Si Hay: bring cash. This spot stands out from its more high-end neighbors and has recieved lots of buzz for its Mexico City-inspired street tacos. You’ll find day laborers, lawyers, bartenders, artists, motorcyclers, and more at this red, white, and green outpost during the lunch rush, which brings us to rule number two: get in line early so you have plenty of time to finish your tacos in your car (there aren’t any tables).
