Micheladas in NYC?

  • b

Does anyone know any bars or restaurants that serve micheladas in Brooklyn or Queens (or Manhattan for that matter)?

For those that don't know what they are - basically, a beer cocktail popular in Mexico and border areas - a link:

Thanks in advance.

    1. Had one last night at the new burrito place on flatbush (burrito cafe?). It was decent. Best I have had in the city are in Manhattan at Bario Chino on the LES.

          My fiance went last week and said that the burritos were just okay, nothing special. He was shocked that pints of beer were $6 and that a CAN of Tecate was $5!

              If those are the plain beer prices, what would they be getting for the michelada?

          Cinco De Mayo - a great place on Courtelyou Road and (I think) Westminster. Q to Cortelyou. I think you can only get them when the owner is there but that is usually the case and the food alone is worth it

          1. In Park Slope Los Pollitos II on 5th Avenue and St. John's serves a very nice Michiladas. Not as good as my friend from Mexico makes, but I enjoyed it anyway.
