Village Voice's Description

Pulqueria is an underground cocktail lair masquerading as an old Vietnamese restaurant in the middle of Chinatown, fetishizing a Mexican working-class drink for relatively affluent Americans. Its namesake is a milky alcohol made from the fermented sap of agave plants and can be had in a handful of flavors (opt for the watermelon or guava). For food, you can't go wrong with the enchiladas (either hibiscus or suizas), and the mushroom quesadilla rocks. Skip the tacos, though. And be sure to end the fiesta with a Negroni Mexicano nightcap.

Tips from foursquare

  • Thrillist on 10/13/11

    This bar specializes in pulques (made from fermented agave sap) and has a full menu with goodness like stuffed masa pockets known as Gorditas de Requeson O Papa Con Chorizo.

  • Eater on 02/19/13

    Pulqueria is the Mexican spinoff from the owners of Apotheke. In addition to food they offer beer, Micheladas, and Mexican inspired tequila and mezcal-based cocktails like pulques and Jarrito Locos.

    Go ahead, walk down that alley. It's the right place. Fear not, walk down those stairs into never land and choose the blue door. Then, all of the guac and queso.

  • Stanley S. on 01/18/12

    The vibe is more mellow than your average "club" with dim, cave-like scenery, hearty Mexican style food, and strong drinks.

    Go out of your comfort zone and try the pig brains! Better than the pig's feet. Guacamole is amazing.
