Heffe Tacos has opened at 1431 Frankford Avenue (the corner of Frankford and Marlboro Street). The walk-up taco joint from Peter McAndrews (Paesano’s, Modo Mio, Monsu) quietly opened late last week with the tagline, “Tacos That Don’t Suck.” The menu definitely looks like it was created by the same man who came up with the winning sandwich combinations of Paesano’s. So don’t look for traditional Mexican tacos but riffs that take influences from across the Latin world as well as the Mediterranean. And there are several creations, like the Americano burrito, crispy pork roll, rice, beans, Jack cheese, lettuce, salsa and an over easy egg that are pure McAndrews.

Tacos come two to an order and cost between $6 and $9. Burritos, a couple of soups and “Tijuana Poutine” round out the menu.

Heffe is open for lunch and dinner daily, and till 3 a.m. on weekends.
