This sleek, affordable counter-service Mexican spot near JFK Crossing stands out for its fish tacos: Baja-style beer-battered whitefish (spicy or mild), grilled mahi and beer-battered shrimp, all dressed with crema, crunchy cabbage or jicama, and terrific fresh salsas on soft corn tortillas. It also merits praise for its outstanding cemita, the six-layer sandwich of Puebla served on a great roll, and refreshing beverages like jewel-toned Jamaica (hibiscus flower) agua fresca and good, simple sangria.
