When someone raves about a restaurant, I must go. Awit told me about this Mexican restaurant, Chavella's which he argued to be the best Mexican food ever. The way he described it at length had me dreaming about eating their tacos. On my day off this week, I met Chantale there and introduced her to a lovely new eating establishment she lives nearby.
I adored this place. They recently moved to a new bigger location. I’m not sure what the old place looked like, but the décor here was super amazing. The walls were brick and all the furniture was rustic old wood tables and benches. To off-set the darkness, the bar was covered with bright colored painted tiles. My favorite part was the amazing decorative tin ceiling.
We split the guacamole, which was the bomb. Literally one of the best I’ve ever had. It came with very fun flat tortilla to dip in rather than your standard chips.
They have really great lunch specials, so dining at lunch time was such a great deal. I got a taco and quesadilla combo. Both were super delish: Rajas Con Queso quesadilla, which was poblano peppers, caramelized onions and queso Oaxaca and Chipotle Chicken taco, which was chicken, tomatoes, sweet onions, lettuce and avocado.
I had never been to this area in Brooklyn, so after eating we walked around a little. I love exploring new areas. It is quite far from me so unfortunately I will probably not be dining here quite often, but will definitely return at some point.
