After getting heartburn from a Taco Taco I had been a little put off from Mexican food. So ever since I had been trying to keep my eyes open for a Mexican restaurant in my neighborhood that is reasonably priced and muy delicioso.
Alas! I think I have succeeded in finding one… I frequently walk the streets of the Upper East Side in hot pursuit of all things new and interesting and fabulous, so when I stumbled upon the tiniest little eat-in-eatery my radar had instantaneously went off.
We sat down to be greeted with a smile and a plate of tortilla chips with salsa verde that was zesty, spicy with a hint of cilantro (yummmmmm). “I’ll start with a pitcher of the sangria rojo!” the words eagerly expelled from my mouth to our server as she approached us for our drink order. After being gone from a challenging business trip I was definitely out for cocktails and more cocktails. By the way the Sangria is refreshing. Thankfully it was not too sweet but still incredibly “sabrosa.”
I then ordered the spicy chicken wings to start. Ok readers, I enjoy spicy, but the mild was highly fiery, so I hope your tolerance is up to par or else you’ll be in for a rude awakening. However, I am a trooper and I forged on and finished that plate of hot wings (well that and I was absolutely famished). Mission accomplished and I was now ready for my entrée. My guest of honor munched on the grilled chicken fajitas, while I gorged on beef alambres which for those who don’t know it's kinda like a Mexican shish kabob, absolutely mouthwatering. Awesome guacamole by the way too. This is a cozy little venue with exposed brick tons of keepsakes from Acapulco and traditional salsa music in the backdrop.
I a couple years ago I had spent 3 weeks in Mexico city and the food I ate at Sabor A Mexico rivaled many a restaurants in the capital. Definitely worth a try if you haven’t yet been or heard of it. Entrée’s are priced median around the $10 - $15 range; but are not large like most Mexican restaurants that you may be accustom too. The Sangria is also not inexpensive at $25 for a pitcher that is not huge. My overall recommendation is to venture out here. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service was highly satisfactory entonces por qué hace no va y tiene una tarde feliz y mantiene por favor visitando www.uppereast.com para las mejores revisiones en la mejor ciudad
