It's no secret that the Mexican community in East Harlem has taken over 116th Street in the past decade but where does one go to get the best tacos uptown? Food blog Eater recently made it over to the east side and decide to check out the assortment of offerings available to see which taqueria performed the best. Based on reviewing the numerous restaurants, taco trucks and grocery store stands, it now appears that El Aguila is the winner. Each taco establishment was judged on quality of tortilla, filling and toppings. The Mexican eatery on the corner of Lexington has a funky fast food ambiance to it but is also consistently chosen as one of the better places to get tacos on the strip. More at Eater: LINK
