Please note that the meal was complimentary. However, the opinions expressed in my blog are 100% my own!
I recently received a coupon to try Tres Carnes, a fast casual tex-mex restaurant with few locations in the city. We went to the Flatiron one and I admit that I was surprised as to how good it was, definitely better than the other restaurants in the same segment. It is not only due to the freshness of the ingredients, but also because of the slow cooked BBQ meat they serve. It is not a big place for sure, but we had no problem finding seats at the large table in the center of the dining room.
Food wise, I was surprised to see that, similar to ice cream or frozen yogurt places, they offer you to try some of the meat they serve and so, I tried the smoked brisket that was good, although not outstanding. But anyway, I decided to get a burrito called Carlito's Way, that not only contains brisket, but also smoked chicken, blackeyed-black beans, pico, radishes, cotija cheese and creme. Normally, there is rice, but I always prefer burritos without. It was quite a tasty burrito and I literally inhaled it, the two meats being a nice combination.
Jodi went for a vegetarian taco that had squash in it. It was made with a soft white tortilla.
As she did not have that many ingredients in her taco, they gave her a portion of rice and another of beans, a nice gesture I thought.
We also shared some guacamole and chips. I thought these were ok...
Overall, it was a good meal: tasty with food at a reasonable price. I would definitely go back to Tres Carnes and try maybe another burrito, or build my own trying not to go overboard...
Enjoy (I did)!
