Doña Zita is a takeout counter down a little side street behind all the rides at Luna Park. Up front, there’s a taco station, and on the other side there’s a grill where you can order things like quesadillas, flautas, and gorditas. But what you really want is an enormous torta or cemita stuffed with meat, cheese, and vegetables. It’ll be one of the best things you eat in Coney Island.
