On Friday night, I celebrated my friend Melanie’s birthday at a restaurant called Los Feliz on the lower east side. It’s famous for their tacos and over 150 Tequilas. Yep, I said 150 Tequilas. Who knew there were so many ways to make me throw up?
Aside from the fact that we had to wait 45 minutes for our RESERVATION, it was a pretty cool place. They have a menu of margaritas which is the only drink that allows me to ingest tequila without it coming back up. They had one called “The Freshest” which was a classic margarita with lime juice added to it. It was great! We got a few pitchers of those and we were feeling fineeee. The guacamole and chips appetizer was killer and the chips were the saltiest most delicious things I’ve had in so long. Who needs salt on the rim of your glass when you have these chips?
I picked the Carne Asada Tacos (the menu on their website is different from the one at the restaurant) and they were fabulous. I have something against hard tacos, probably because they break all over you after the first bite and you look disgusting while eating them. Luckily these were all soft tacos so I was a big fan. We also tried their Yuca Fries which came with some sort of spicy dipping sauce that made me sweat but in a good way.
Here are some pictures of the group…
What was fun about this place was that it was 3 levels. The first was a bar and some tables, the lower level was another bar and more tables (I love more bars) and the lowest level was another bar (!) and a dance floor! I expected it to be wall to wall with people salsa dancing, but it turned out to be filled with Asians doing the robot which I think I liked better.
Los Feliz is definitely a place I would go back to in the future for tacos and some margarita induced robot dancing!
