If a millennial candle brand wanted to put something on that market called “Taco Tuesday,” they would need to do research at Boca Santa. This BYOB taco spot in Bed-Stuy smells like freshly-made blue corn tortillas and hibiscus agua frescas. And Tuesday or not, Boca Santa is a great option for a casual dinner date or a meal with a friend whose new couch you actually want to hear about. Most of the dishes here are vegetarian, including our favorite (the mole taco), but if you’re craving meat, get the chicharron.
Boca Santa is permanently closed.
