Sabor A Mexico
Posted by Anonymous on 05/30/2008
Finally an authentic Mexican food restaurant in Manhattan! I was born and raised in San Diego and burritos are my bread and butter. This place makes em like their almost straight out of San Ysidro. The enchilada sauce tastes like my grandma's and the flan is so right. Oh and the refried beans.....creamy, delicious and perfect! The decor is pretty classic as well. After suffering ten years in NYC with only burritoville and la esquina to dampen my mexican craivings (both which taste closer to chinese than mexican), there is a place that can take me back home. Sabor a Mexico is the taste of Mexico. Canyon Road can kiss my ass.

I'm from San Diego AND Mexican, this place has very good Mexican food (considering that we're in NYC) I love their Tacos Locos and their Tinga Pueblana...although it is a bit pricey it is well worth it. The people who work their are amazing, great people.

I've been going here for years and its my favorite Mexican place in the neighborhood! Its a quaint & tiny restaurant, good service and great food. If you are in the mood for a margarita, go somewhere else, as they only serve beer & wine. That said - there is nothing bad about this place. If you get delivery, service is always pleasant & prompt.

Finding good (clean) Mexican food on the Upper Eastside that's authentic and isn't part of a chain is a difficult task. Sabor A Mexico has good food but it comes at a price. Most of the meals don't come with cheese - it's costs 2$ extra. Somehow your simple chicken burrito ends up costing 12 bucks! Still, for what it's worth, I recommend the Taco Salad - the largest, most filling meal for the price.

As a former Californian who has visited Mexico a lot, I longed for real Mexican food here in NYC. And at long last I found it right around the corner. Consistently excellent and authentic. Lovely people. Sparkling-clean. Prompt service. And great value.

I am Mexican and I eat in this place when I want authentic and unpretentious Mexican food. Some of their highlights are: -The Pozole (This is a great soup with corn and chicken to which you add lettuce, onions, oregano, lime, radish green, avocado… really good) -Mixiote, new in the menu and fantastic -Pastel tres leches (dessert- the best I have tried including those in Mexico) Also good: -Flautas, simple but delicious -Mole, great! Do not know about the nachos but if you want real Mexican food in general you should not eat nachos or burritos anyway. It is a family run business with Mexican chefs and the service is always friendly and good. If you are looking for a tasty inexpensive dinner this is a great place. The atmosphere is not gorgeous but it does look like a little “fonda” in Mexico.
