With four Manhattan locations, Choza Taqueria brings the flavors of Mexico’s roadside cuisine to New York City.

With an obsessive focus on flavor, authenticity, nutrition and accessibility, Choza Taqueria is a taco destination you will want to visit.

Chef Akhtar Nawab has taken the authentic and vibrant flavors of Mexico, and elevated them to suit the ever- evolving, discerning, collective palate of New York City. They source locally, cook honestly, and aim to please.

Northern Mexico, known for its rich ranch culture, is a grilling mecca. The region’s distinct cuisine is a result of the amalgam of indigenous and Colonial culinary traditions, and infuses flavors ranging from the ranch to the beach. At Choza Taqueria, they take traditional cooking and make it fast, flavorful and full of choices for customers. Whether it’s Carnitas or Carne Asada, each dish has suggested sauces and toppings, but feel free to order your meal just the way you want it.

All of the main dishes are gluten free except the burritos.

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while NOT eating gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.
