Papaya Kings Serves the Most Reliable, Classic Hot Dogs on the Upper East Side
Off the Jefferson L in Bushwick sits Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos, a warehouse cantina that serves taquitos, tacos, tostadas, and quesadillas -- all filled with your choice of chorizo, steak, chicken, or pork, and all for an insanely cheap price. There are two entrances to the massive space -- on one side, there's the counter-serve kitchen, where you write your order down on an index card and watch the line cooks sizzle and fry your meat, beans, and cheese as the line inches towards the register. The second entrance is to the garage side, where booths and group-friendly plastic tables distract you from the warehouse's actual purpose of making tortillas. The place gets busy on weekend nights with a mix of Bushwick families and hipsters, a juxtaposition that makes eating here all the more fun.
