Taco Time at Chavella's

When you need to eat before or after a trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, head to Chavella's, a few blocks away (732 Classon Ave, Brooklyn) for good $3 tacos. Try the Nopales (cactus, avocado, pico de gallo, queso fresco and pickled jalapeno) or Aguacate con Queso (avocado, queso fresco, black beans, pico de gallo and salsa verde). If you've never had cactus, it's not scary as it sounds; it tastes like pickled vegetable.

But if you only have room or the budget for one taco, the sure shot here is their tasty Bistec taco (grilled marinated steak, grilled onions, cilantro shipotle salsa). We like juicy meat in our tacos!

Chavella's offers lunch specials like $6 for a taco and tamle combo. And they charge only $2 for tacos and $3 for beers during happy hour. Sucks they're not in our hood.
