Welcome back to another batch of the Los Campesinos! food reviews. After some tips I’ve decided to try and broaden my vocabulary but coming from Somerset I doubt that will happen.
Due to the ethnic makeup of Britain you don’t really get that many Mexican restaurants. Lots of places do fajitas but they’re not as good as getting them from a proper Mexican restaurant. Having spent a lot of time in the States now I love Mexican and try to have it as much as possible.
Last night we played at Union Pool in Brooklyn. There was no sign of a pool but there was a taco truck! Having no time to try out the Peruvian restaurant next door (has anyone been?), I opted for the taco truck.
I decided to go for a beef taco. He produced what looked like a very thin steak which he then chucked on the grill, cooked and then sliced. The beef was very tender and had a slight smokey taste to it. There was plenty of onion but not enough to give an over powering taste. The tomato was juicy and sweet, providing a nice contrast against the steak and spice. The spice level was perfect, it left a nice flavour in your month, and in this hot weather, it didn’t induce sweats. I was told later they use the Rooster hot sauce which Neil is a big fan of.
The only downfall about it was there was so much in it that when you bit into it half the filling fell out. But I shouldn’t really complain for only $3US it was great value and I thoroughly enjoyed it, apart from when I tried to eat the Lime, thats never a good idea!
Next we look at Manhattan.
