Village Voice's Description
This sprawling Mexican restaurant in Murray Hill’s Pod39 hotel looks chaotic, but the kitchen is under the control of April Bloomfield and Roberto Santibanez. The duo collaborated well, resulting in classic dishes like ceviche, suddenly dressed up with light apple chips, tucked in layers of crisp chicharron. Order plenty of tacos--the tortillas are pressed throughout the day with fresh masa from Queens--and the toppings of pork shoulder cooked traditionally on a spit, fried sweetbreads, or roasted cauliflower, don’t disappoint. If you really want to feel like you’re on vacation (like the suitcase-pulling guests moving through the lobby) go for an ultra-boozy horchata spiked with coffee, served in a colorful ceramic parrot.
Tips from foursquare
Tacos are the name of the game here, though, with options like the skirt-steak taco with pecans, crispy sweetbread with chickpeas and the Moroccan lamb on naan bread.
The spiked coconut horchata is delicious... and comes in a parrot.
The tacos are to die for!
Eat this: Sweetbread tacos, skirt steak tacos, lamb on naan, kimchi posole, Jacob’s Ladder Feast. Drink this: 5 Island Horchata spiked with dark rum and Fernet Vallet, excellent tart house margarita.
AMAZING. Korean tacos are where it's at!!!!
