Wherever you are in Bushwick, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll never be more than a stone’s throw away from a place that makes good tacos. It’s one of the neighborhood’s greatest strengths. But if we had to pick one taco that represents the gold standard, it’d be the perfectly proportioned carne enchilada at Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos, the beloved no-frills restaurant attached to a longstanding neighborhood tortilla factory off the Jefferson L stop (and its accompanying cluster of bars). Quick, cheap, and loose with the BYOB policy, this place has rightfully become the go-to neighborhood hub for pre-, post-, or mid-drinking snacks. And, for what it’s worth, there’s something oddly satisfyingabout writing down your order on a 3x5 card and sliding it across the counter. We don’t know why, but it’s true.
