If you need a taco pick-me-up (because, who doesn't?), stop in to Otto's Tacos in the East Village. This LA inspired taqueria is making everything from scratch, fresh, everyday. Everything is meant to eat in a pit-stop fashion, order, take a seat, eat, and keep on trucking. I ordered their Mushroom Taco and added guacamole.

We had been so excited to try this place after its write-up in Gothamist and all the glowing reviews. We were utterly shocked by what we experienced -- it's not that unusual that restaurants don't live up to the hype and we're slightly disappointed. But this is different -- I honestly can't understand why anyone would rave about this place. The masa chips were dense, dry, and extremely salty, although the dip they came with was good (probably the one thing I ate all night that I enjoyed). The tortillas were dry, the taco fillings were bland, and worst of all, everything was insanely salted. I am not usually one to complain about salty food but this was out of control -- it obliterated any other flavor you would have picked up in the food. The guacamole especially. Also, when you order guacamole on your taco (for an extra 35 cents) they give you way too much -- there was more guacamole than filling, also ruining the flavor. Will definitely not return.
