Extraordinary goat taco at Chinantla in Bed-Stuy
Barbacoa tacos, that is, goat tacos, are fortunately not as hard to find as they once were. A couple of weeks ago I had a great one at the Red Hook soccer fields. I had an amazing one today at Chinantla, on Myrtle Avenue just east of Franklin Avenue. It came with a pleasantly chunky guac and a piquant chipotle salsa. But the goat was the highlight; it was fatty in best sense, and flavorful. My lunch companion loved it, too. She wasn't crazy about the carnitas taco we got, thinking it was too dry, but I liked it, albeit not as much as the goat.
