Cinqo De Mayo will be next Monday, and you know what that means, everyone…guacamole! Here are a couple of places around town that won’t let you down when you order the green stuff:
Tehuitzingo on 10th Avenue and 48th Street is not the fanciest joint, but its traditional guacamole is out of this world.
Toloache, with three locations throughout the city, is more of an upscale place. They actually have a guacamole tasting, with three styles: mild (avocado, onion, tomato, cilantro and serrano), medium (avocado plus pomegranate, vidalia onion, mango, apple, habanero and thai basil) and spicy (with added chipotle and queso fresco).
Rosa Mexicano has two locations: one in Union Square and one by Lincoln Center. They whip up their yummy guac right in front of you.
If you’re looking for a snack right by the hotel, Empellon Taqueria is right on West 4th St. Their version is a neighborhood favorite.
