Breakfast Tacos, Anyone?

Our choice for New York’s Finest Breakfast Taco, at La Esquina (see below). The secret’s in the sauce?
The Mexican Wrap at 94 Corner Cafe (West 94th & Broadway) features eggs, chicken sausage, spinach, and jalapeños — a potent combo, but it ain’t no taco.
The Red Headed Stranger breakfast taco duo at Javelina (see below) combines eggs with brisket, avocado, cheese, and a mysteriously tasty ranchero sauce.
La Esquina’s Corner Deli has three locations (clockwise from top): 200 West 55th St (6th Ave), 1402 2nd Ave (East 73rd St), and 115 Kenmare St (Lafayette St);
