A few weeks ago we had the pleasure to enjoy a most delicious Latin lunch at La Pulperia in Midtown Manhattan. As we were not very familiar with Latin food, we asked our waiter to tell us what he thought we would like. After asking us a few questions, he returned with two amazing and very different Margaritias. One minty, one smokey and both spicy. Delicious.
Enjoyed our cocktails with two perfect starters. El Salmon Brulee a unique Salmon Tartar with strawberry and ginger brulee.
Then we were surprised with the Lobster Taquitos cold lobster salad with pineapple served in crispy wonton shells. We were so happy that we let the expert make the choices!
Just when we thought it could not get better out came a Signature Dish, The Moqueca Mixta which we shared filled with shrimps, squid, mussels, white fish, scallops and chorizo and bacalao served with coconut green rice. We are not kidding, you must enjoy this one for yourself.
The last margarita is not on the menu, it is the House Special Jalapeno Margarita and all you have to do is ask for it. S.P.I.C.Y. Safe to say we were pretty full at this point and so we decided to share a dessert and just like the rest of the meal the choice that was made for us was perfect. Crepas, coconut cream, banana brulee with dulce de leche lucuma ice cream. Did we finish it? Yes, we did.
If you find yourself in New York City you must come to La Pulperia for an unequaled dining experience. Mothers’ Day is just around the corner, Mom will be thrilled. Fabulous for all Holidays and special occasions like Lunch and Dinner. 🙂 Worth the trip.
