After watching the last James Bonds (Skyfall) in a movie theater in Times Square, we decided to find a restaurant on 9th avenue. Several times we noticed Patron and we thought it would be a good idea to go there as it has been a long time we ate Mexican food and we were kind of craving it. So we thought that joint would satisfy that crave...
The place is divided into two parts: the bar with its communal tables and the dining room. We got seated in the bar area.
The menu offers classic Mexican cuisine, from tacos to burritos and fajitas. We decided to share some appetizers and sides.
It was served with some homemade tortilla:
At first, it is fine and I would say even good, especially if you like cheese! But then it starts to be too much grease...At least the tortilla were good. Not sure it was a good choice!
We also ordered some guacamole.
That we ate with tortilla chips.
This guacamole was the worst I ever ate! You had the impression that they just put chunks of avocado in a bowl! It was lacking lime and seasoning. Horrible!
And it was not the rice and beans that made me not regret to be in that place! It was bland and they were not that generous on the portions!
At least, there were the maduros!
These fried plantains with cream were delicious! The sweetness of the plantains was counter balanced by the cream (crema), making it a great dish.
Fortunately we got the plantains, but trust me: this is a forgettable experience! The food was really forgettable for me!
Enjoy (the post)!
And remember: I Just Want To Eat !
