The Suizas Enchilada Experience

Manhattan has a shortage of quality, cheap Mexican food, it seems. The Suizas Enchilada (chicken) from La Ceiba is a notable exception.

$10. Try it.

With a nice salsa verde, I got mine without sour cream. Though I wish I got the refried beans, this was still great. No question, this meal was the best I've had in four months of this little town.

This La Ceiba meal was rated: 8.2.

Mexican TV Dinner

I was wandering around my neighborhood in search of dinner the other night, when I was struck by some Burrito Blog inspiration. Thai food can wait...a month.

I stepped into La Ceiba a little late and it was kinda empty. I asked the guy behind the counter what he preferred, the mole poblano or the chicken enchiladas. He picked the mole, and I'm a trusting man.

Burrito Blogging isn't all fun and games. I realized how far behind I was, and decided to get my food to go. Over some television and chicken mole, I started catching up on my posts. While this burst of motivation didn't compare to the one that started it all, my La Ceiba meal fueled me to write about 10 Burrito Blog articles.

Oh, and the mole poblano came with black beans and rice, and was moderately excellent, though $11.

This La Ceiba meal was rated: 7.4.

Welcome To La Ceiba

Just down the street on the corner of Avenue A and 11th Street (Map) sits La Ceiba, a Mexican restaurant with a few tables and a jukebox. The jukebox offers no American pop hits (everything was in Spanish), and the menu has no burgers.

Finally. Real Mexican food in this part of town is unusually hard to find.

While it's not exactly a the quick eats burrito stand that I prefer, they offer delivery. For now though, I can walk the four blocks.
