In Bklyn: Soft taco's in Bushwick.

Two things I'll never forget about Bushwick sector of Bklyn; the fact that its damn hard on most streets finding a spot to park my bike (a lot of cyclists in the area), and the food @ El loco burrito.

It is a thing of beauty.
Modeled after the style one finds in California (the great places with soul)the food exudes a unique home-cooked taste that always leaves you wanting more.

Fresh ingredients, and lots of it.
Simple, yet divine.
I highly recommend the soft chicken tacos ($2.45 each) to start (of course if your a veg-head, they've got you covered). The meat is shredded (but not too thin), moist and simmered in a tasty sauce served with fresh toppings (black beans, diced tomatoes & onions, lettuce, cheese) on a tortilla thats just right. 
The decor is simple & without pretension.
The walls clad with various stickers, 1960's-70's
concert posters.  
They serve a few different kinds of beers; Corona, Dos Equis, Negro Modelo, and some no-alcoholic drinks along with bottled water.
And of course they have excellent burritos, along with the usual ethnic selections. Most of the times there's a movie playing on the flat-screen T.V (last time it was "Shrek"). There's no table service, so you order @ the front counter, then get a table or take it to-go. Also there's usually a selection of local newspapers & magazines to read.     

The view from the dining room, always great.
El loco burrito is located @ 345 Graham Ave in Brooklyn N.Y and open until 11pm (718 388 8215). & you can find them on
