South/Central American in Newburgh

Thanks to the Rogue for directing us to Machu Picchu in Newburgh after a lovely afternoon at Storm King. We loved our appetizers, the ceviche mixto and antichutos (sp? It's sliced and then grilled beef hearts. Yum!) Main courses were good but less remarkable, a mixed seafood fry recommended by our waitress which was heavy on the batter and not overly seaworthy, and a whole rotisserie chicken which wasn't the equal of a number of Brooklyn and Queens versions. For dessert we split the rice pudding topped with that purple corn stuff which was fascinating but tasted to me a lot like canned blueberry pie filling.

Our waitress could not have been nicer and we were impressed with how spanking clean the place was. I highly recommend.

Now then, I regretted being too full to sample the tacos made right next door. Attached to a Mexican grocery store was a little dive (called Portales something or other) where they were making beautiful Mexican-style tacos, flat little tortillas topped with all manner of pig products and garnished simply with onion and cilantro. In fact, Broadway was positively teeming with great-looking Mexican eateries. Definitely worth another visit.
