Authentic Mexican Breakfast in Park Slope?

kiworan79 Nov 2, 2010 07:54 AM

Does it exist? Just moved from Hell's Kitchen to Park Slope and missing/craving the Mexican breakfasts we used to get every weekend at Tulcingo del Valle. Not looking for the pseudo Mexican, modern Mexican or Tex-Mex stuff that is all too prevalent in NYC (like, Los Pollitos or even Chiles and Chocolate) -- craving the real deal. Is there anyplace in Park Slope that is even comparable to Tulcingo or Tehuitzingo in HK?

If it doesn't exist in Park Slope -- suggestions for places that serve authentic Chilaquiles or Huevos Rancheros in Sunset Park (or elsewhere) would be greatly appreciated. Willing to travel for authenticity.

Thanks much!

    Very good huevos rancheros (not sure if they have chilaquiles) at Lopez Bakery on 5th Ave. and 18th St. Also excellent pan dulce of all kinds. And a pleasant place to sit.

      I've had great chilaquiles in Sunset Park at both Ricos Tacos/Piaxtla es Mexico (51st near 5th Ave) and Tulcingo Deli (5th ave at 55th).

        Great breakfasts at Los Tres Portillos, it's a former Greek diner, complete with cake carousel, now authentic Mexican. On Fourth Avenue and corner of 39th. Also has a parking lot on 39th!

          Couldn't agree more with the Lopez Bakery suggestion. I used to live exactly one block from this place and fell pretty hard for it. Living in France now it's one of the places I miss most about NY!

            about the only mexican option i trust in the slope is nuevo mexico (their 5th avenue branch isn't better than many of the sunset park options but it is THE legitimate option without the trip down to sunset park) id give them a shot if you dont feel like leaving the neighborhood.
