Eating at Barrio Chino NYC

This is a very small restaurant in the lower east side, so be prepared to share tables if necessary.  In my blog of NYC eats, I totally forgot to blog about this one.  This place is supposedly known for their spicy margaritas.  My party each ordered habanero margaritas, and they were delectable.  They were spicy with a kick, but not overbearing.  For many, habaneros are already daunting.  But once you soak the habanero into the tequila, it’s really not that bad in terms of spicy.

I ordered the pescado tacos, which is citrus rubbed tilapia served with avocado salsa and pickled onions.  It was very good, and for $10 I was easily full.  The tilapia was surprisingly moist, and I’m glad the salsa wasn’t so watery that it would break the tortillas when you picked them up.

If you are visiting Manhattan and want a good non-touristy place to grab some tacos and habanero margaritas, check out Barrio Chino.
