For some of Brooklyn's best tacos, head to the source

We've been taught to be skeptical of any food that comes from a factory, but a tiny taqueria kept (mostly) secret behind the facade of a Brooklyn tortilla factory has changed our minds.

What started as a makeshift taco stand inside Bushwick's Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos has since expanded into a glass-encased dining room where you can watch thick corn tortillas arrive–literally–hot off the press before you eat them.

The menu is sparse (since there really isn't one), but don't be fooled by the simplicity of the items: The flavors (pork, in particular) take time and a master's touch of seasoning to create.

Grab a Mexican Coke and choose from a no-frills array of standard taco fillings (all tacos are $2 each). Each comes dressed with lettuce, lime, crema, queso fresco and your choice of salsa–either slightly sweet red or the acidic green tomatillo.

And don't miss the chorizo taco, a juicy, spicy pork sausage flavored with cinnamon and hot peppers and topped with tender potatoes and a warm corn tortilla made just minutes ago.
