I was on my way to meet a friend one night recently when I had a vision. It was all swirling colors, bright green and yellow, with the Virgin of Guadeloupe in the middle and she was speaking to me. She said, "Ven hijo, we have some tacos and tamalitos just for you Johnny Connecticut." I immediately turned the car around and parked. And there before me was a little market, recently painted green and yellow, and through the window I could see her, a tapestry of the Virgin hanging on the wall. I went inside and I discovered a pleasant little market with some happy kids running around.
Now, I frequent places like this all across the Tri-State area and this one gets the best decorated award by far. On this board we don’t really care about that, we care about the chow. They only carry snacks right now, tacos, tortas, and tamales. I ordered some tacos suaderos and a tamale de rajas. They were great.
The menu is translated in English, and the owner is fluent as well. The owner told me he has plans to eventually expand the menu on the weekend. I look forward to that. They also have a really good selection of Mexican cooking items. I’m just happy to find some “real” Mexican food in the Brass City.
Looking at their menu now I see they offer Clacoyos, does anybody know what those are?
