After a night at Brooklyn Bowl, I smelled tacos on the walk back to the L, and immediately informed my friend Tim that if we found a taco truck, we had to stop. Â And then on the corner of North 7th and Bedford Ave, right near the Salvation Army, was Tacos Morelos.
While the truck had other entrees, I was purely interested in a taco. For $2.50, I could choose different tacos like chicken, goat, beef, pork and more. Â I’m a carne asada type of girl, so I went with a beef taco. Â I was asked if I wanted everything on it, and this included cilantro (Caryn’s favorite), onions, avocado sauce and a spicy sauce.
The guy went easy on the spicy sauce, and even after I dumped more spicy sauce on it, there still wasn’t much of a kick to it. Â I found the taco to be good though, and I really enjoyed the avocado sauce on it. Â Compared to other street tacos though, it wasn’t that big. Â Most of the meat could be contained in the soft tortillas, and unlike recent taco truck experiences, you could pretty much eat it all in a few bites. Â At the last taco truck I visited, the meat was so plentiful, it didn’t fit in the taco shell, and as a result, I was picking it off my plate at 2:30 am. This did not happen at Morelos, but maybe I became classy in just a few nights (eh, probably not).
Overall, Tacos Morelos was good, but not a reason to go to Williamsburg if you are craving tacos. Â And even if I was in Williamsburg, I remember from a few years back some cheap Mexican restaurants that may be worth a visit instead. Â I will argue though that if you have a few beers and stop by Morelos, it’ll definitely curb your hunger.The Basics Name: Tacos Morelos Location: North 7th and Bedford Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn Who to Bring: Self Price: $2.50 for a taco. $ Overall: Okay, but I’ll keep searching for my taco fix.
