Mexican Restaurant in Union, NJ
A new place opened up on Morris Ave., right behind the new 7-11, and across the street from CVS & TD Bank. I was going to write the name down, but completely forgot it. Anyone know the name, first off, and is it any good? It looked like a nice little place I'd like to try.
Mr. diva and I tried this place last night, and the food was mediocre. It would probably be an ok place to hang out for drinks, though.
Mr. d had chicken enchiladas with salsa verde, and they were bland, plus the cheese was barely melted on top. The verde was lacking in the traditional tang and green chili heat. The rice tasted strongly of achiote, but was otherwise bland, as were the black beans. My fajitas were fine, served with not that great store-bought tortillas. The table salsa was probably the best thing about the meal with a good kick, but it was very garlicky, so beware if garlic bothers you. Overall, it was pretty much meh. We'll stick to Casa Maya for now (I've only tried the one in Meyersville.)
YMMV, jethro, so post if you try it out!
