Tacos - Flor de Calabasas, Huitlacoche like in the Puebla food markets

Has anyone had these particular types of tacos in NYC? I haven't had these since I came back from Mexico (and LA). I welcome your suggestions.

      Thanks! I think I will go try them tonight.

    2. Tehuitzingo (695 Tenth Ave., between 47th and 48th) is a deli-grocery with a counter-through at the back, which opens on a small kitchen that prepares tacos, tortas, and quesadillas. Flor de calabazas and huitlacoche are both on the menu, and you can snag a paleta for dessert, too.
