Goa Taco

Location: 79 Delancey St.
Time: 3pm
People: RB, CK and myself

-After a strong debut at Smorgaburg in Park Slope, Goa Taco opened the modest pop-up serving paratha tacos in Lower East Side. This place needs to be permanent ASAP.
-The buttery paratha is folded over the modern, LES friendly fillings like slow roasted pork belly ($8), recado rojo lamb shoulder ($9), and organic tofu ($7).
-House made scotch bonnet hot sauce was so flavorful and spicy, RB had to buy a bottle.
-"Brunch" ($8, bacon-substitute with cheese, tomato, egg, basil aioli) was highly addictive and well seasoned. I will think of this taco for a very long time.
-There are just some two seater benches (about 10 seats total) at this narrow space. Consider yourself lucky if you get a seat. Hopefully they'll open a permanent location soon with more seating!
