The last place we tried at Urbanspace Vanderbilt was La Palapa, a mexican restaurant that is not unknown to us as we went few times to their East Village location (great French toast for brunch!). Perfect for a quick bite, it was not the best tacos though...Here is what I tried:
Guacamole and chips: good but this is a tiny portion that they give! There is a larger portion but it is not worth the $15 they ask for. Otherwise, the guacamole, not made to order, was good.
Then I tried two tacos:
The first one was the Chicken Tinga, that is a chile chipotle barbecued chicken, and the second was the CHORIZO, that was made of with a homemade chile guajillo sausage. The later was much better than the former, tasty, deliciously salty. I just was disappointed by the chicken that was a bit bland.
So yes, I was a bit disappointed as I remember great meals at their restaurant. I personally would go to their place in the East Village and skip the location at Urbanspace Vanderbilt. In fact, I realized that I never posted about La Palapa. So, I am going to have to go back...
Enjoy (I did)!
