Alfredo's been mourning the loss of Rockaway Taco on Beach 96th Street since its closure, but there is hope..
Andrew Field, who's run the joint since 2008 is opening a new taco enterprise close to Beach 87th Street. Tacoway Beach will be operating from Rockaway Beach Surf Club. The spot has more seats and a drinken permit for those beers along with your tilapia tacos.
We can trust in Andrew Field to supply us with the classic Rockaway Taco flavours like the chorizo taco. Deeply smoky and piquant, the coarse-ground sausage that takes well to thick guacamole and a bright splash of tomatillo salsa. The griddled tofu, marinated in soy, cider vinegar, cayenne and garlic, holds its toothsome own. The rest of the menu is less successful. Elote - corn on the cob dressed in mayonaise, cheese and chili powder - is soggy, and cucumbers need another slap of chili and lime Still, alfresco, with a fresh watermelon juice amid cute and scruffy A-train surfers, it's all pretty darned likeable.
