When I hear the name “Otto,” I immediately think of this cool dude rather than tacos.
Woogidi woogidi woogidi!
But now, thanks to my taco-loving best friend Monica, I will associate the name with TACOS.
A small place in the East Village (with another location in the West Village), Otto’s is a cool LA-style taco spot with a small yet satisfying (and cheap!) menu. Hellloooo $3.00 tacos! Not only affordable, but super flavorful too. Mon went with all chicken tacos while I chose two chicken and a mushroom. The mushroom taco had the exact same flavor as the chicken, so it’s a good option for vegetarians!
Yum. Yum. Yum. Otto’s also serves delicious masa fries with a spicy mayo dipping sauce; they reminded me of Fritos.
Feel like some dessert after your tacos? Try the hot churros! For $2.75 you get three good sized churros that are nice and crispy on the outside.
BREAKING NEWS: Apparently, there’s a SECRET ITEM you can order at Otto’s! It’s called The Gorgon, it’s deep-fried and it’s larger than the regular tacos. I plan on going back and getting one of these super duper soon.
Would I recommend this place? YAAAAAS.
Spread kindness and cheer, xo
