The Street: There’s no better name for this former bungalow that’s been transformed into an iglesia for the worship of tacos. The menu offers more than a dozen preparations of beef, pork and goat in styles from around Mexico: cochinita pibil from the Yucatán, shredded pork mixed with pork rinds in the style of Campeche, and carne al pastor to rival the D.F.’s. And every house salsa and condiment has been made to match your taco of choice.

Since restrictions and conditions are changing frequently, contact the restaurant for the latest on COVID-related accommodations and options.
