It is clear that this restaurant, which seems like it hasn’t been around for all too long, clearly caters to the Mexican immigrant community of New Orleans. This was clear immediately upon entering, as a telenovela played on the flat screen television above the bar, where three or four Mexican men sat speaking Spanish, occasionally walking over to the juke box to play some Latino songs.
My friend and I enjoyed a filling (and CHEAP!) meal of tacos and gorditas al pastor.
So, if you find yourself in the mood for an authentic Mexican meal in the company of authentic Mexicans, you might consider heading over to El Paisano.
