Slideshow: Taco Thursdays: El Globo, Queens

Taco de Barbacoa
Taco de Barbacoa
Overstuffed with tender, shredded goat meat, the barbacoa at El Globo had a strong goat flavor, with less of the chewiness that goat can sometimes have, since the barbacoa was stewed until the meat fell apart. Topped with chipotle salsa, the spiciness mixed with the onion and cilantro for a fresh bite, and the soft but sturdy earthy tortilla brought everything together.

Tinga de Pollo Quesadilla
Tinga de Pollo Quesadilla
A very large quesadilla, made to order, filled with shredded chicken and a thin layer of white cheese. I like my tinga spicy, and this wasn't, but a few squeezes of the chipotle salsa made all the difference. Served with a mini salad of shredded lettuce and a tomato slice.
