THE BRONX - If you've got a craving for some Mexcian fare, Mott Haven might have just the place you're looking for.

Estrellita Produce not only serves freshly made tacos, quesadillas and everything in between, but the small food stand and store also sells all the products you need to cook up your own authentic dishes.

Ofelia Isabel Mendez opened up the Mexican spot just three months ago after moving to the Bronx in 2004. She does the cooking, and is already becoming known for her memelas, a long tortilla with salsa, onions, cream, cheese and lettuce, and sometimes meat.

Mendez says she hopes to open more locations around the borough.
