      La Esquina a hidden Mexican secret
      La Esquina a hidden Mexican secret ( NOLITA, New York City ) I wont say much about the place because otherwise I would break the spell of the hidden Mexican secret, and I would spoil the whole experience that even I went through when I was invited to come over this restaurant and I found out it was just a Luncheonette stand for hot dogs and beer. Well the next was yet to come, that if you are lucky enough to be on the list. Only a few snapshots since I wont say anymore. If I reveal too much they will take me out of the circle of trust and wont be able to ever come back again. NOW be aware that if you trust my judging and you happen to send customers or guest to this restaurant, expect them to call you and say Are you F*** crazy, I am not going to have dinner here. Well just tell them to calm down, relax and go with the flow. I would risk to say was the best Mexican dinner/food I have had in year. The Ceviche Acapulco market fish, fresh tomato, avocado, jalapeno, lime (USD 12), Quesadilla de HUITLACOCHE mexican truffle, roasted corn, mushrooms, queso oaxaca (USD 11), Camarones a la Plancha grilled gulf shrimp, butternut squash, spanish chorizo, cherry tomatoes, chayote (USD 22), Pollo Dominguero Tradicional 1/2 traditional sunday rotisserie chicken, papas fritas, string beans (USD 22) but the star of the night were the Roasted Corn with cheese and mayonnaise OMG it was literally a Mexican Orgasm. The dessert highly recommended by our waitress was the Pastel de Chocolate Cafe de Olla warm chocolate cake, espresso, cinnamon, creme fraiche ice cream.
