Dos Toros Review

On Wednesday night, Aaron and I went to a booking signing for the new David Chang Momofuku cookbook. There was an hour long Q&A before the signing with Chang and the revered chef, Mario Batali. Both Chang and Batali waxed philosophical about various culinary topics: gender gap in the kitchen, management style on the line, the difficulties of NY restaurant life, the need to turn tables to achieve financial benchmarks, and of course talk about mouth-watering, delicious food. All of this talk of food made us hungry for something hearty and satisfying, so we decided to try out the new burrito/taco joint, Dos Toros in Union Square.

Dos Toros is a very basic place, and based on the hype, I thought they were attempting to reinvent the burrito, taco or quesadilla. But in fact, their approach to food is quite simple. Nothing fancy, but still flavorful. Aaron thought his carne asado burrito was plain, but my chicken burrito was pretty good. I would go to Dos Toros again for sneaking in food to go to the movies or for a casual on the go lunch.
