I love The Gotham West Market and my favorite places there are El Comado, a Spanish tapas place, and The Cannibal. We went back few weeks ago to see what was new and found Choza Taqueria. As it has been a while since we had Mexican food, we decided to get a bite, before having dessert at Ample Hills Creamery.
They did not have anymore any fish tacos (I was so disappointed), so I went for the pollo or chicken tacos.
It was composed of a citrus roasted chicken topped with charred pineapple, a buttermilk and tomatillo salsa, as well as queso fresco. I liked the charred pineapple with it, giving some sweetness to the dish, but I have to say that it was just ok, the chicken being a bit dry. Fortunately, we ordered some guacamole that I put on top, enhancing a bit the flavors.
The guacamole was good and seemed fresh; it was also well seasoned.
Jodi went for the cheese tamale that was served with queso fresco and salsa.
I tried a bit of it, but did not like it. Well, in fact, I do not really like tamales, so, this comment is not a reflection on this place.
For drinks, we went for a Mexican coke, as well as a pineapple drink from Jarritos that is very good.
Overall, it was a bit disappointing. I might go back to Choza Taqueria as I really want to try their fish taco, but, if they do not have it, I will look for other options...
