Deliciously Organic and Sustainable Tacos & Burritos in NYC!

Deliciously Organic and Sustainable Tacos & Burritos in NYC!
I love San Francisco-style tacos and burritos. I'll say it again -- I LOVE them. So when my wife and I packed our bags and moved to Brooklyn last year, I went through some serious Mexican food withdrawal. Don't get me wrong, I'm a New Yorker and I love living in Brooklyn --- I just miss my San Francisco-style tacos and burritos.

So when I read the NY Times glowing review of Dos Toros Taqueria in Manhattan I began to salivate. But it gets better -- not only does this new taqueria have delicious Mexican food, but they also use local and organic ingredients and are eco-friendly. Here's what the Dos Toros site said about their commitment to sustainability:

  • Our chicken is locally raised, and fed a vegetarian diet with no hormones or antibiotics. For more info go to
  • Our pinto and black beans are grown organically.
  • Our utensils, cups, napkins, and bags are all biodegradable.
  • We compost our kitchen food waste, and we recycle bottles and cans.
  • All our cleaning products are non toxic, and made from biodegradable plant and mineral based ingredients.
  • The extra groovy wood used for the tables, chairs, bench, and wainscoting is all reclaimed from a barn upstate. The tin on the ceiling is also reclaimed.
  • We get all of our electricity from renewable energy sources.

I don't know about you, but I'm in organic and green Mexican food heaven!
