512 Washington Street has like a curse: every restaurant that tried to open there closed few months ago. But then came Charrito's, a Mexican restaurant with already two successful locations in Hoboken. We went there for brunch and dinner and had a great time in both occasions. Although there are not that many vegetarian options, their food is delicious, especially their guacamole that is made table side and is a must have. The place is nice, big and colorful, with a dining room in the back.
Here is what we ate:
Guacamole prepared table side: one of the best I had. They first ask you if you want it mild, medium or spicy. When done, they will ask you to try to let them know if you are fine with it, in case for instance you need more salt.
For brunch, Jodi ordered the hongos (mushroom) quesadilla that was pretty good and had lots of mushroom in it.
On my side, I went for the enchilada suizas that is stuffed with chicken and topped with salsa suiza and melted cheese: perfect if you love cheese.
Both dishes were served with rice and beans.
For dinner, Jodi ordered the fish tacos. It was a good tacos, but I admit that I prefer when the fish is fried, adding some texture to the dish and anyway, when it is fried, it always tastes better, no?
On my side, I wanted to try their mole and so ordered the chicken mole that was delicious and I loved the hints of chocolate in the dish.
The only thing we found a bit disappointing was their tres leches that we did not really like, but overall, they have great food. I admit that at first, I was skeptical when I saw that they were opening a third location, thinking that maybe they would close one because of a rent increase or because they wanted a bigger space. But, having three Charrito's in Hoboken is pretty good as all of their restaurants seem crowded. No wonder: their food is succulent.
Enjoy (I did)!
