Brooklyn >Red Hook Ballfields
“Great atmosphere with superb latin food (mexican, domincan, puerto rican, honduras etc).”
“And we then proceeded to make yummy noises for quite some time.”
great mexican food flavorful but subtle. the flavor wasnt overbearing as i find latin cuisine to be at times. too many cehfs spouil the broth, i always say , great times at a great spot. kudos!
Only one more weekend left for the best Mexican in the city!.
I went with a good friend from Mexico who had been craving authentic Mexican food. So we went and she had a bite and I asked her "How was it?" and she then said it tastes like her aunts' cooking. And we then proceeded to make yummy noises for quite some time. We got tacos, corn, mango with hot sauce. Next weekend, I'm getting a papusa.
You really need to go before it's too late! And you should support them - this is a New York gem that is in danger of leaving. Do write letters to help them stay!
talk about authentic food without breaking the wallet. Great atmosphere with superb latin food (mexican, domincan, puerto rican, honduras etc). These are hard working immigrant that has come to Red Hook to share some of their home cooking. Just follow the crowd, great smelliing food and those playing soccer is where they will be. Try to come early, before the line gets long and they run out of food. The staff are very courteous to the public. Spice can be altered to your needs - beware it can get really spicy. Excellent food with a touch of love.
On the sidelines of a sun-drenched soccer field, a whirlwind tour of Latin American cuisine..
On weekends in summer, the Red Hook ball fields come to life with nail-biting soccer games. But for foodies across the city, the real thrill comes from the accompanying food stands--a veritable promised land of dishes from all over Central and South America and the Caribbean. Lined up along two sides of the field, the rows of tents churn out heaping portions of recipes from Ecuador (ceviche), Mexico (huaraches, tacos and tamales), El Salvador (papusas) and the Dominican Republic (barbecued beef with plantains), to name just a few.
