Things I Like

Empellon Cocina


230 West Fourth Street, New York, NY

I really love the fresh take on Mexican food. The pistachio guacamole is really tasty. Who knew that guacamole could benefit from the rich, crunchy addition of nuts? The masa flatbread is addictive. I literally could have eaten that all night. I love the crab with mango dish (the lemon foam was a brilliant introduction of acidity) and the squid with squid ink. I felt inspired by the ingredients and the plating of the dishes. Check it out.
