Real Mexican in Flemington, New Jersey

  • 2

VIVA MEXICO!

Really that is the name of the little family-run restaurant reviewed by the New York Times a couple of years ago. Recently, my family went back and it was excellant and reasonable.

At the table is a hot fresh salsa and chips while the waitress brought chilled glasses for the beer. (BYOB) I started with a salad with Jicama and papaya with a citrus vinegrette fresh and clean. The special that evening was a crab chimichanga which tasted like the sea without the heaviness of fried dough. The nacho's where a hit with my daughter and I had an appetizer of fresh tortilla with beans, chicken and mexican cheese served with a mild cream sauce.

A real gem and value galore.
