Maizal in Rosebank Staten Island is God Awful

Flaco | Jun 12, 201006:40 PM     11

Was going to cook a steak but Top Tomato had just closed so I ducked in for a tryout. Have to say that the Hungarian bartender was very nice but really the worst margarita I've ever had. She tried to hide the bottles from me but the labels would not be recognized by any Mexican north or south of la frontera. I believe the mix was some sort of powdered cosmonaut beverage left over from Sputnik. I ordered carne asada thinking how hard could it be but I think they get their steak from the same supplier as the the Chinese Mex place down the street. Strips of this rotted carcass was served over limp rice with undercooked black beans on the side. The salsa ranchera was served in a plastic hermetically sealed container probably to lock in the blandness. Here's the kicker: the place was packed with gueros while Molcajetes in Stapleton sits empty.
