Look no further because tonight…. I found HEAVEN!
And heaven on earth is located right on Third Avenue in NYC, can you believe it??
Tonight – dinner was at TEQA located in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan –
443 3rd Avenue between 30th and 31st Street
And to describe this dinner… There is only one acronym that can be used ….
O M G !!! HEAVEN on earth !!!!
If you’re in the vicinity of Third Avenue and 31st Street and enjoy…
Eating… (or in my case, scarfing down in about 14 minutes flat) delicious Mexican food in an awesomely fun and cozy setting (not too dark and not too bright …the lighting is juuuuust right!), decorated with special boards created exclusively for Teqa by celebrity tattooist PaulieTattoo , attentive and smiling waitstaff, an all around great guy and ever-so nice & pleasant manager ..all the while accompanied by the latest house music (that will make you bounce in your seat!)…
Then you are in the right place!
It all started with an Oaxacan Fondue appetizer of bubbling cheesy goodness, then to one of each of their Global Tacos: Blackened Shrimp (spicy with incredible Cajun salsa), Jalapeno Teriyaki Chicken (the Togarashi pepper gives it the perfect kick), Kurobuta Pork Belly (delicious!!), and finally the BBQ Pork Burnt Ends (my favorite of the 4!)…. The side of their grilled corn dusted in Chili pepper and Cojita cheese was the best corn I have ever eaten (sorry mom!..but at least I ate my veggies!!).. all washed down with their signature Tommy’s Margarita (excellent!)….
Definitely my favorite place by far in a LONG time..
Have a great Tuesday evening everyone!
