Every once in a while I’ll get an e-mail telling me about a place to eat that I’ve never heard of, but it’s usually something out of ML price range and/or out of bounds. Last week I got a note from lunch’er James that made me actually want to go to the edge of Soho for lunch. Here’s what he had to say:
I just wanted to point out Tauro Restaurant, which is situated on 284 Hudson Street. This is a great find for someone who yearns for heaping portions of rice and beans, mofungo, and various other Latin specialties. I usually opt for the roasted pork (pernil), which is succulent and tender. Rather than spend my money on Sophie’s, Tauro is laid back, but tends to get a little busy during peak lunch hours. You come out of there satisfied, full, and ready to conquer the rest of the afternoon. I’m working my way through their menu, but I always go with the Latin specialties rather than the American section of their menu.
What’s that you say? Heaping portions of rice and succulent fatty meats? I don’t know what it is about that dead zone near the Holland Tunnel, but I’ve had good Latin food in the area before and was willing to go out of my way to check out another option. Read more »
