We were staying in Soho and I researched the surrounding area for places to eat. We wanted to make sure we visited a "good" Mexican restaurant while we were there, and I found El Maguey y La Tuna on Trip Advisor. Let me assure you - this place does not disappoint! I've only ever been to Mexican restaurants in London and the food here was absolutely nothing like we have in the UK - it was amazing.
Decor wise it's nothing special to look at - there's a small handful of tables covered with plastic table cloths and mismatched chairs. However, the moles are to die for! If you're unsure of which one to pick, they suggest trying two of the sauces with nachos and you can pick your favourite. They also have an excellent range of margaritas.
Of all the restaurants we visited during out stay, the bill here was by far the cheapest, and the food was definitely the best. If we are ever back in NYC then this will be the first restaurant we visit.
