John and I happened to be in the East Village and stumbled upon what I have been craving for all week: tacos! We ordered tacos from the Snack Dragon Taco Shack. It was a bit pricey for one taco (carne asada was $5 while fish taco was $4) but they give you lots of ingredients. Plus, it was pretty fresh and made in front of you.

Our tacos were also served in blue corn tortillas which I thought was pretty neat. It has more protein and less starch than the white corn tortillas. However, it was kind of dry. 😦 We had trouble eating our tacos so we had to use forks and treat it like a taco salad! I tried eating it with my hands but the weak tortilla ripped and all of the ingredients fell out onto my plate. You can’t really eat it on the go but luckily there were stools and chairs inside and outside of the shack.

The strips of steak were very juicy and tender and was topped with lots of cheese and black beans. ¡Magnífico! Despite the great amount of ingredients in one taco, it still didn’t make me full. Pretty tasty but pricey!

While passing through St. Marks in the East Village, John and I decided to try out the yogurt at Yogurt Station. The huge sign with the big bold pink words, “39 cents per ounce,” caught our thirsty eyes from across the street. Once we entered, we picked up one of the cups and served ourselves to the different yogurt choices they had. Flavors ranged from interesting flavors such as cheesecake, red velvet, green tea, and cake batter to the more simple flavors such as dutch chocolate and strawberry.

We headed towards the register where there was a variety of assorted toppings as you would see at Pinkberry or Red Mango. John decided to get the green tea yogurt with mochi rice cakes while I chose red velvet and strawberry toppings. The plus side of this place is that you can control the amount of yogurt and toppings you can get. The down side is that right when we sat outside on their tables and chairs, it melted very quickly. I would have to say the yogurt tasted just average but it was pretty cheap. However, the melting yogurt was a bit of a turnoff. We would probably not come here again and search for other yogurt places in the area for the real deal next time.
