This is without doubt the best Mexican food I've had in New York. From the guacamole and chips to the posole soup to the tacos and stuffed peppers and jalapeños. The taco shells and chips are made here and are incredible. The staff are efficient and kind.
Their signature dish of pork adobo ribs included a generous portion of meaty ribs that satisfied my hunger. The broth in the bowl was soy sauce and vinegar with a hint of lemon zest. The spring rolls were substantial. Rice to go with the ribs cost extra and beers on tap were 6 while bottled beers were a high 8. I got the sense the ribs were essentially taken from a pot and reheated. Solid food overall and service was competent.
Warning: I'm giving three stars only because I don't want to hurt a small business. However, despite the chicken being good the first visit along with the maduros and seafood soup (parihuela), the second time the fish in it was rubbery (especially the calamari) and undercooked, but was not taken off the check despite two or three attempts to complain to the waitress. In America the customer is right. Will not be returning unfortunately.
Upon entering your are ignored by two fellows eating lunch who, when asked for help, tell you to sit down and wait. The man who sets you up at your computer is pleasant and efficient. The test room was cool and quiet except for one time when the custodian caused a racket in the closet outside. The air conditioning is excellent. Overall it's serviceable though I should mention that during my last test the computer failed after an hour and I will have to retake the rest; Pearson did not confirm if it was their system's or Ace's failure.
DO NOT BUY FROM THIS PLACE. "You only buy here when there are sales and we have to deliver to queens" is what an employee said to me in a nasty tone--this after I've bought thousands of dollars of wine at the store. I can no longer give them my money. The absolute meanness of the manager Catherine and the owner she works for is out of this world. Their business model is to sell as cheaply as possible and to treat the customer badly. I put up with this in order to get good prices but can no longer in good conscience buy one cent worth of wine from this stinking establishment.
Arepas were soggy and flavorless with plastic-like cheese caked on them. Bacalao cakes were lifeless manifestations of double-fried purgatory, likely have sat for a day or so before serving. Churrasco was tasty, served with insipid chimichurri. Salmon was dry with dull tasting rice--if Latinos can't do good rice, then what's going on? Of course, you can't mess up bottled beer, so the Presidente was fine. Patrons loud to the point of obnoxiousness. Tons of loud-clapping Bday parties. OK, so the Churrasco was actually ok (the meat was cooked nicely -- some sort of pounded cheap cut, strangely priced at $23 or so. Give them credit for taking the two deadly appetizers off the check. Very cramped space so the person seated next to you must get up if you want to go to the restroom.
The soup had old stale pork in it -- i don't think this place is run by Japanese, even though the cuisine is such; it may be Koreans, who seem to like old stale pork stlices. Nice service and reasonable price. They say they don't take cash but ended up taking a credit card after sending us to an ATM that didn't wortk
The burger was juicy but lacking in flavor. Horrible service consisted of a girl dressed like a harlot with oddly fast speech patterns who left me sitting at the counter rather than providing a table. The burger was bland. What's all the fuss? Stick with McDonald's. Better value.
