If Park Slope has a reputation for being the source of exportable goods and services, it's mostly thanks to 'hood's large contingent of sensitive writers and parents busting out tots. As it turns out, you can add Mexican food to the list. Slope favorite Fonda, the Mexican spot run by the former Culinary Director of Rosa Mexicano, has a second location in an area better known for culinary riches. To wit, Fonda East Village, a larger version of the original with similarly good eats: guac with hand-pressed tortillas; carne asada stuffed taquitos; flautas and Yucatan-style shrimp; ancho-braised pork shoulder; and the house burger served with sweet potato fries. Look who's hip now, East Village.
