Take a trip with me to Cafe El Portal (down the stairs on Elizabeth Street) where proprietor Igancio’s mom is cooking up insane authentic food a la Nopales Burritos, some of the best guacamole and pico around, not to mention the pork tacos with a hint of lime.  Wash it down with a Jarritos or Cerveza.  Know the Mezcal flows freely (makes for a great post lunch sip) as does the small, warm blue-hued vibe of the place.
