  1. I googled: Pell Street, NYC, mexican restaurant.

    Easy: it's Pulqueria. Note mention of Maguey in its subname

    1. Pulqueria. Love that place, it's legit. Some recipes are very old Mayan recipes. Also the drinks made with 'pulque' are nice and mild, very flavorful, pulque is fermented agave juice (vs distilled e.g. tequila).
