Nolita nook, Pinche or little taqueria serves up fast fresh Mexican comida in their charming space. With seats around a little square with exposed brick and an open window with additional stools, Pinche seats about 20 people comfortably. The menu is cheap for the hood with entrees maxing out at $11.75 with a soda. Their signature fish taco with guac., cabbage, cilantro cream on a soft corn tortilla was sabroso and piccante with the added salsas they provide. It is made from lighly battered mahi mahi and at $3.75 was filling. A green tomatillo and a rich red semi spicy salsa add heat to the dish. I ordered a side of Mexican rice which was pleasantly tomatoey and extra tasty with the salsas. No visible john.
