La Cocina Mexicana, Newark report w/ pics

hhc | Jun 10, 2007 11:14 PM

came here for dinner Sun 6/10/07. It used to be a Chinese restaurant.

There is a Grand Opening sign outside.

They have tacos, burritos, nachos, quesadillas, mariscos, coctel de camaron, especials, combinaciones, tostades, tortas, aguas frescas. On Sat & Sat. they have Menudo-Red or white; and Pozole.

I got 3 tacos which comes w/ choice of meat, cilantro, onions, cabbage & salsa for $1.25 each. The meats I picked were Adobada-marinated pork; Lengua-beef tongue; chile verde-pork in green sauce. All were good. Free fresh salsa bar available.

Also got a small cantaloupe aguas fresca $1.50. Tasty and refreshing served over ice.

Credit cards taken. My total was $5.93. Unisex bathroom available.

Things I might try next time:
hot dogs con tocino: hot dogs wrapped in bacon $1.95
Menudo white $5.95 small
tortas cubana $5.75
