Rosa Mexicano: What to Order to Drink?
Marg- my words- here’s where to celebrate Dia de los Muertos NYC. We started with a round of refreshing cocktails. We ordered the Mango Chile Margarita and the Paloma. Archana’s favorite was the Margarita. This cocktail is made with jalapeño-serrano-infused El Jimador Blanco tequila, mango, agave nectar and fresh lime juice. Kanchana’s go to drink at Mexican restaurants is a Paloma, which has El Jimador Blanco tequila, ruby red grapefruit, combier pamplemousse, jarritos soda and grapefruit bitters. You can’t go wrong with either. You can order by the glass or pitcher of margaritas for the table.
Rosa Mexicano: What to Order for Dinner?
Pineapple state of mind. The pineapple topping gives the guacamole a unique spin and it’s both spicy and sweet at the same time.
If you got it, flaunt it. We also ordered the Chicken Flautas made with pulled chicken, shaved cabbage, crema, queso fresco and tomatillo-avocado salsa. They were quite tasty.
To ceviche their own. Our favorite dish of the night was the Tuna Ceviche. It was so fresh and made with mango habanero salsa, scallion, serrano chiles and guacamole tostadita.
It’s not Taco Tuesday, but we still ordered an assortment of tacos. Our friends liked the Beef Strip Streak Tacos, which came with guacamole, pico de gallo and Cotija cheese in a flour tortilla.
Let’s give them something to taco bout. The Red Chile Chicken has avocado, tomatillo pico de gallo, queso fresco in a corn tortilla.
Taco dirty to me. The tuna tacos are small but packed with flavor. These tacos have fresh ahi tuna, soy-lime marinade, red onion, sliced avocado, cilantro in a crispy corn tortilla.
Love you a whole enchilLOTa. The Roasted Chicken Suizas are perfect to share. They have tomatillo salsa verde, chihuahua cheese, crema, cilantro and onion.
Nice to meat you. We also ordered the Parrilladas, Plantains and Sweet Corn Esquites. If you are a meatlover, the Parrilladas is for you. This dish comes with Red Chile Chicken, Grilled Chorizo, and Beef NY Strip Steak.
The Fried Ripe Plantains are so good and served with crema.
Churro-k by me. We ended the meal with Churros and Tres Leches. The Churros are dusted with sugar and cinnamon, and served with dark chocolate and raspberry-guajillo dipping sauces.
You want a piece of me? The Tres Leches Cake is soaked with three different milks and topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
That’s the spirit. Tomorrow head over to Rosa Mexicano and celebrate Dia de los Muertos NYC with friends and delicious bites and drinks, while honoring your loved ones who have passed.
