If you look in the window of Taqueria Coatzingo, you can see flames coming off the grill, and when you walk inside, the dining room might even be a little smoky. Take this as a very good sign. The kitchen here is big and constantly busy, and it produces some very good tacos (that come with a lot of meat). If you want something else, there’s a long menu with a lot of other options like huaraches, enchiladas, and bigger dishes like pork chops and steaks. There are also a lot of tables in the big back dining room, where you can simultaneously listen to music and soccer announcers on TV.

As we’re all well aware, Mexican food in Manhattan generally blows. Empellon hasn’t come to save the day, but it isn’t adding to the problem either. While nothing blew us away, the food was solid with the good outweighing the bad.

La Contenta Oeste is a Mexican restaurant in the West Village that’s pretty affordable and more big group dining friendly than the original LES spot.
