The Adobado at Los Tacos No. 1 is downright special: amazing pork with some sweet and delicious marinade sauce that balances out the little bit of kick you can add at the salsa bar. Also I'm a big fan of the chicken -- it's juicier than at most comparable taco spots with a great grilled flavor to it. The guacamole is legit as well.
The corn tortillas are remarkably good, both in terms of flavor and their ability to not fall apart holding generous servings of meat. And despite Chelsea Market being a little bit crazy around lunchtime and weekends, if the weather is nice it's easy enough to walk a half block further down 15th street to the little park between the Highline and the river. Otherwise, cozy up to the counter and after one bite you will know it won't be long until you're looking down at an empty plate and taco wrappers.
The nopal and steak are also good but aren't quite up to the same level as the pork and chicken in my mind, but find a friend (or come with an appetite), order one of everything, and enjoy!
