La Cocina Mexicana, Newark report w/ pics
came here for dinner Sun 6/10/07. It used to be a Chinese restaurant.
There is a Grand Opening sign outside.
They have tacos, burritos, nachos, quesadillas, mariscos, coctel de camaron, especials, combinaciones, tostades, tortas, aguas frescas. On Sat & Sat. they have Menudo-Red or white; and Pozole.
I got 3 tacos which comes w/ choice of meat, cilantro, onions, cabbage & salsa for $1.25 each. The meats I picked were Adobada-marinated pork; Lengua-beef tongue; chile verde-pork in green sauce. All were good. Free fresh salsa bar available.
Also got a small cantaloupe aguas fresca $1.50. Tasty and refreshing served over ice.
Credit cards taken. My total was $5.93. Unisex bathroom available.
