Delicious guacamole, and the salmon special on a bed of plantains was just perfect. I scarfed it all down while enjoying a damn fine Mojito. My taste buds were singing. My belly was happy. My gluttonous desires were completely satisfied.
My gal totally gushed over the chicken mole. That mole sauce was righteous! Oh, and they don’t skimp on the portions. You go home full after a meal here with a food baby in tow.
Avenida Cantina? Why does this place seem so familiar?
Cheap, filling, and tasty Tex Mex in the space Idle Hands bar used to be. In these days NYC is constantly changing and evolving, yet it still took me by surprise when we wandered in here for some post happy hours eats and realized it was an old haunt of ours.
Upstairs dining area is totally repainted and redecorated in a bright cheerful decor but we still recognized the layout of a bar we had some good times at. Oh, the drunken memories! Idle Hands had a solid beer and whiskey list, rock and metal bar in a hovel of a basement lair downstairs, burger joint and tater tots to chow down on upstairs, along with a bunch of Yelp events we attended here.

Dropped in this relatively new spot for some eats on the Upper West Side of NYC after seeing Deadpool again. Yes, I went and saw it again. I had an excuse this time as I took my gal who loved it. Bad thing is she now keeps talking about Ryan Reynolds’ body. I had better keep up with this new training and eating regimen! No chimichangas for this guy!
Man, as many have noticed the service here at Playa Betty’s is extremely slow and a bit confused. Our server, even though nice enough, seemed frazzled.
Our bill was screwed up and they asked me twice if we had ordered something put on the bill that we did not order. Um, you’re our server. You took our order. Did you not realize you didn’t give this phantom item to us?
Muy Delicioso! Living far uptown on the Upper East Side right below Spanish Harlem it’s a quick trek for us to head a bit north and discover some new joints to dine at in NYC.
As we decided during a nice day on a past weekend to wander around East Harlem a bit and hang out in El Barrio we definitely got hungry for a good dinner and craved some tasty Mexican eats. That is when we came across El Paso Restaurante Mexicano.
What a wonderfully decorated restaurant! You can tell they put some time and effort into the decor here – artwork, statues, ceiling beams, lighting, colors, nice bar and tables, etc. Even the bathrooms with a communal sink area had a cool design. There is even an enclosed outdoor back room which was also nicely decorated and looks like it would also be great for parties. It all projects a feeling of warmth and coziness.
