What is with the overpriced Mexican food in Manhattan? I went to Mama Mexico (Midtown East) last night and paid $23 for a fajita plate, plus $12 for a small portion of guacamole for the table. If you add drinks, I don’t think you can get out of there without paying at least $50 for dinner. Rude.
Just down the street from Mama Mexico is another overpriced Mexican restaurant: Dos Caminos. At least Dos Caminos provides an upscale environment and some unique dishes.
I know, I know. It’s Manhattan and everything is overpriced. But there have got to be some cool hole-in-the-wall cheap Mexican joints out there. I just haven’t found them yet.
One of the few more affordable Mexican restaurants that I know of is Blockheads. But honestly, who goes there for the food? It’s all about sitting outside and boozing up with awesome drink specials. Be real.
Help a girl out. Any suggestions??
