New York has a well-deserved reputation as a serious eater's paradise as you'd be well-pressed to find somewhere to live in the city that wasn't at most a five minute walk from something delicious. You can find almost everything here you want to eat here—except, strangely enough, good Mexican food, as all my friends transplanted from California, Texas and Mexico moan about endlessly. Time Out New York's Rose Palazzolo says they're all wrong and shares her list of the "tiny taquerias, restaurants and delis throughout the five boroughs" where you can get authentic South of the Border food for not much money.
(The most astonishing thing? There are three entries for Midtown Manhattan, which is generally the city's culinary wasteland. One of them is described as being inside "a dank food court"!)
