Gueros TacqueriaPosted By Alex Chinien Feb 28 2012 · 0 comments · Dining Out
Gueros is a lovely taqueria on prospect in Brooklyn. I was lucky enough to be staying right around the corner from Gueros on my recent trip to NYC.
The spot has a limited number of seats inside along with a small terrace for the summer outside. The ambiance is busy but relaxing at the same time. You can’t help but be in a good mood as you roll in around noon and pick a breakfast taco while the friendly staff pour you a margarita from an ice machine.
The weekend breakfast tacos start with scrambled eggs, lettuce, onion and tomato and the diner picks two sides. The sides are potatoes, refried beans, cheddar, bacon, chorizo, rajas and avocado. I picked chorizo and cheddar cheese. To keep my breakfast taco company I ordered a Blackened Catfish Taco and Fried Avocado and Jalapeño Taco. I was so extremely tempted to order the chips and queso as well but this was my last stop before the airport and I was low on American funds.
The tacos were served quickly and looked amazing. I was given some house habanero sauce to spice them up and I didn’t hold back. The staff mentioned that they make the sauce in the restaurants basement and that face masks become a necessity due to the intensity of the chili.
I don’t think I’ve ever hard deep fried avocado. Why did it take this long? I’ll never know. It was delicious – crispy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside. I’ve been using avocado more and more for breakfast lately because it tastes so good with eggs. The catfish taco was served with pico de gallo salsa on top of the catfish and chipotle mayo. Catfish for lunch – yes please. Funny enough I ate the breakfast taco last and it was the biggest taco of them all. The ingredients tasted very fresh and all the tacos are made to order. You really can’t go wrong here.
