Tres Pasos

Anyone eat here yet? Just opened next to a new bakery/deli in West Harlem. We loved the bakery, but didn't try the burritos next door.

  1. The same person who reported on Vinegar Hill said that they liked Tres Pasos. I would say give it try and let us know what you think.

    1. I had some tacos from there yesterday. I tried it out b/c I live literally around the corner. They're ok, but in my opinion there's really no reason to go there when you can get better Mexican food (and a much wider selection) down the road at El Toro Partido.

        1. I'd skip the tacos and hit the burritos here. I've only tried the latter, but they were well above average for NYC - good meat, good veggies w/ many options, and the sauces are actually good. Tacos are more about what comes straight off the grill, and Tres Pasos is assembling off a pre-prepared line, and so it's probably not their strongest suit. Does anyone remember the name of the restaurant next door w/ the same owners? It was packed on Friday.

            Have tried tacos at Tres Pasos twice. Once right after they opened, then about a month later. Both times taco fillings were way too cold and only one tortilla was used, resulting in a soggy mess. Flavors of the meat fillings were good, especially the pork, but all together was completely inauthentic...who wants to bite into a taco full of warm meat and ice cold veggies?? Disconcerting and clearly not improving over time. Toro Partido gets my vote.

              Vinegar Hill is one and Cafe Largo is the other. You are probably referring to Largo which just (re)opened. Great food there by the way.

                Any place that has a "B" health inspection sign (EL Toro Partido) gets lower marks than a place with untrained counter workers (Tres Pasos) anyday!!! The last time I ate at El Toro, I did have a "Bad Food Experience", and Tres Pasos only gave me Slow Service, not bad food.. Just a thought
