One of Soho's most revered food trucks, Calexico Carne Asada (located at the corner of Wooster and Prince Streets), has expanded its tasty reach to Brooklyn in the form of not one, but two, restaurants.

We hit up the Greenpoint location (there is also an outpost in Red Hook) this weekend, and were overwhelmed by the results.

Owned by three brothers dedicated to bringing delicious California-style Mexican fare to NYC, this decently priced spot accomplishes just that. A common complaint from my Los Angeles-born husband has always been that New York has "really lame Mexican food." Thanks to Calexico? Problem solved.

Some highlights from our meal included the jalapeno mint margarita,

the chicken and fish tacos,

and the Carne Asada burrito.

The four diners at our table were blown away, and can't wait to go back.

Drool over the full menu here.

P.S. I really like how the front of the restaurant looks like a food truck. Clever!
