Glad I gave Rosa Mexicano another try

I went to Rosa Mexicano (East Side) once several years ago, and was not very impressed. But I was near the Lincoln Center location today and decided to try it for lunch. I must admit, the food was quite good, although overpriced. I was blown away by the zarape de pato appetizer (roast duck layered in tortillas with yellow pepper & habanero suace). The cochinita pibil was also good, very intense achiote flavoring, with the pickled onions, etc.

I know, most people on this board look down on RM and will probably doubt my sanity. But, damn, it was good.
