Has any one been to Las Bugambilias on 148 South street? The place recently opened a few weeks ago.

Any responses wwould be great.

    Oh I'd be eager to hear some reports as well - I'm really hoping this place will be my next favorite Mexican!

      Las Bugambilias is great. Small but spacious, pretty dining room. Casual. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Food is terrific, authentic, VERY flavorful. Try the chiles rellenos or the Carne Tampiquena. Salsas that come with the basket of chips are freshly made, often- changing and addicting. Tortilla soup is delicious and different. Granada cocktail is like a pomegranate margarita and they don't hold back on the tequila. Desserts surprised and also change daily. If they have it, try the tres leches trifle.

        Went last week. I had the mole poblano, my friend had a shredded pork dish. Both were great. We shared the pina colada cake for dessert (which had a flan-like consistency). It was unlike anything I had ever tasted before and I loved it. I am excited to go back and try their cocktails.

          Just posted a separate thread a few days ago about this place. We were really pleased with the service, food, and prices. We'll be back.
