Harlem’s Cantina (Review)

Cantina 1838

Cantina 1838 located at 1838 Adam Clayton Powell has a great happy hour.  The restaurant has a nice size bar, offers good service, food and drinks.  You can’t go wrong with $2.00 tacos and $4.00 beers and margaritas during their happy hour from 4-7 pm.  We had the chicken, fish and pork tacos along with beer and margaritas.

I am looking forward to dinner there next as they have a great menu including short rib burritos and lobster and chipotle tacos to name a few.  If you are looking for a great “Happy Hour” and authentic Mexican food in Harlem you should definitely try it out.  Here is their MENU.

Not too long ago, I was craving tostadas and Mexican corn on the cob so I headed to Lolita’s on Lenox Avenue and 113th Street. When I went in I noticed the place was full since the only area to sit is in a narrow space you see right when you walk in or you can sit outside when the whether is nice. However, this time when I went there to dine the host turned far left and said “you can sit here,” which was in an entire different area! I had never gone beyond the narrow area. Apparently, Lolita’s took over some of the space next door (or was hiding it) and now there is una gran sala to eat! Que suave and congrats to Lolita’s on their expansion! After being open for nearly two years, I would say that is nice progress for Lolita’s.
If you like Mexican food for a reasonable price, head on over to Lolita’s with your BYOB or try one of their Jaritos! Enjoy!
