Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Dinner @ Rocking Horse Cafe
Located in Chelsea at 182 8th Ave
I’d heard that Rocking Horse was a good Mexican food restaurant. Having never eaten there before I decided to go try their fare with a friend of mine who knows good food places throughout the city.
This place has its charm. The lighting and interior go very well together. In any case once at our table I perused the menu for a few moments while sampling some chips & salsa before settling on something simple. Rocking Horse’s “Street Food” Burrito with KNK farms free range chicken breast.
Meanwhile my friend went to a personal favorite choosing Lamb shank with caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes epazote, over creamy cotija polenta and rice with black beans. Folks two words…Yesss! Yessuh!!!!
While my dish was excellent! I have to say the next time I visit this establishment for dinner I’m ordering the above. Wow is that an amazing dish!!! I had a small bite of the creamy cotija polenta with some of the sauce and a piece of lamb shank and my hands went up in the air without my knowing it. Lol
Rocking Horse scores high marks all the way round. In terms of presentation and taste. Rocking Horse scores a perfect 5 out of 5 dinner plates. OOOOO
I love spicy foods usually but I made a mistake when I bit into that there “devil’s finger” to the left on my plate. My mouth loved the spicy flavor but the onset burn became a bit too much to handle.
For a moment I thought my taste buds weren’t going to make it. I bit a healthy bite into my burrito to marry the burning spicy flavor to the incredibly constructed pieces of happiness that are the Rocking Horse Burrito.
Tequila on the rocks with lime helped to quelch the burning some along with several gulps of water. All that said I recommend Rocking Horse Cafe as a must visit if you love really goood Mexican food. Till next time this has been THEJNSREPORT’S: Rocking Horse Cafe Experience 2014.
