Village Voice's Description
Some signature drinks are celebrated because of their simplicity, like Paladar's Bachata, a mix of Bacardi and horchata ($6), which arrives with coconut garnish and froth, much like a milk shake. Horchata, a Latin American concoction of milk and ground rice, complements the bold flavors of the restaurant's cuisine, while the rum gives it an extra kick. And much like the romantic dance that inspired its name, Bachata evokes the perfect ending to a sultry tropical day in the Dominican Republicaor Ludlow Street, if you will. It took Irish fellow Amon Fulong to come up with this creationahe's also in charge of the Latin tunes and managing the businessaproving he's got plenty of sazA3n. Decorated with vintage album covers, kitschy trinkets, and tinsel, Paladar is all about drinking, eating, and being merry.
