Rosa Mexicano is known for how well they bring you an upscale dining experience while also honoring the Mexican heritage. Seems like a great combo! Let’s get into it:
Rosa Mexicano is what you call gorgeous. As you walk inside, you will notice the high ceilings and elaborate lighting. They truly embody an upscale restaurant and serve of the best Mexican cuisine in the land. Their menu is exquisite to say the least. You will find empanadas filled with crab and shrimp, enchiladas filled with crab meat topped with a roasted tomato sauce, and grilled octopus.
Did I like what I had? Nah. I loved it. The guacamole was not able to get flicked up, because I chowed it down too quick. Easily the best guac I have eaten! The empanadas were heavenly texture wise. The crab and shrimp was fire! The enchiladas were to die for. The plump crab meat mixed in the roasted tomato sauce was delicious. The meal won my heart, and I am devastated that it is over..

I was starving in Brooklyn, and it was snowing. I just wanted some quick food before the snow got worse. Carne asada was on my mind, but I was hesitant with the order. What if it was not authentic? What if the guacamole wasn’t not fresh?
The bowl came with layers! Rice covered with black beans and lettuce topped with pico de gallo, carne asada, and guacamole. This bowl was absolutely delicious! The carne asada was out of this world with flavor. With every bite, the guacamole slapped me in the face letting me know that it was yummy as well. Don’t invite me out for Mexican food if it won’t come close to Bushwick Taco Company..
Velvet Taco likes to get funky with their tacos! They believe tacos don’t have to be associated with Tex-Mex. Let’s get into it:
I was already curious of the several flavor combinations, and the worker encouraged me to go with my gut! I ordered the Spicy Tikka Chicken taco and Chicken & Waffles taco. If I felt like eating as much as Charles Barkley, I would’ve also ordered their falafel taco, flank steak taco, and shrimp & grits taco! They also carry margaritas, so they officially won me over.
The spicy tikka taco was absolutely delicious! The flavors were so consistent and rich. It felt like I was eating tikka masala from an Indian restaurant. The chicken and waffles taco was nuts! Not only a waffle as a taco, but a chicken strip laid there covered with bacon and maple syrup. If you guessed that I almost cried because I was so happy, then you were 100% correct. The tacos were good sizes, so I really was able to indulge with every bite. After finishing my tacos, I was so close from going back to the register and saying…
