Yesterday we celebrated my grandmother's 86th birthday (with a delicious cake from @capricakes149 of course). She arrived from Puerto Rico in 1964 with my father and aunt in tow and had been here ever since.
Her knees may not be the same but she still walks about a mile a day (at least) as she goes to mass almost every day and runs her errands.
I'll be honest. When I first visited this neighborhood I was introduced to this restaurant - mainly the counter outside where I had the best tacos this side of the border. I fell in love instantly and moved here shortly after. I probably like nothing more than the tacos al pastor with everything. They have other amazing dishes and special. I see people who work at other restaurants in the area eating here all the time. I've never had a bad dish here ever. And yes, they deliver, but I like the counter. Friendly cooks. Neighbors. The aroma. I love it all. I meant to take a photo of my tacos but I forgot and ate them! . . . . #SantaClarita#SouthBronx#MottHaven#BronxFlavor#tacos#alpastor#tacosofinstagram#Ilovethebronx
