Alto Cinco

Located on the oh-so-trendy Westcott street, is one of the coolest restaurants in Syracuse, Alto Cinco. The location itself makes this Southwest-dining palace pretty awesome. It lies at the heart of Syracuse’s booming hipster hipstersom, with a grungy movie theatre and concert hall to its right, and the perfectly–shady-its-charming pizza joint to its left. Along with the current businesses on the street, Westcott is historically know as an activist, progressive, neighborhood. Why shouldn’t the food on the street be the same?

I’ve been to Alto Cinco just about once a year, for the four years I’ve been in Syracuse. It’s not a tradition, but more of my obstinacy to sample Mexican food that was not made in the Southwest. I had previously lived in Southern California, so my standards for Mexican food are pretty high. It’s just not the real thing, and I know Mexican food before there even was an Alto Cinco! (The pot calls the kettle black: I guess I’m being a hipster now, too.) (more…)

La Taqueria

My girlfriend and I took some time to drive out Rt 31 along the lake.  I remembered there was a Mexican place somewhere out that way in Cicero, past the high school.  Guess what – there was!  We pulled in to the Lakeshore Heights Plaza and found a parking space in front of La Taqueria.

La Taq as fans call it is just about in the middle of the plaza.  It’s not really Mexican.  They call it a Mexican Fusion Grill.  Which is totally cool!  Hello!  Tofu?  Spicy Ranch sauce?  Yes please!  But I’m getting ahead of myself.
