Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: THE COSTANERA EXPERIENCE 2014 PT II!!!
Location: Montclair, NJ
Last visit to this establishment had me completely impressed and excited to eat. This time around was no exception and we managed to bring several more friends along to experience what dining is like at Costanera.
After toasting with wine and tequila we ordered our respective dishes for the night.
Anticucho (Beef Heart), Quinoa crusted Chicharon de Pescado (Fried Catfish)
The Seafood Ceviche
Maduros (Fried Plaintain)
Bronzed Whole Fish
Steak & Eggs, Maduros, & Rice & Peas
Tres Leches soaked cake
Once again Costanera took care of us and as last time the place was packed. Our food was expertly prepared and almost nothing that we ordered remained on their respective plates except for some of the Bronzed Whole Fish which one of our friends took home in a doggy bag. 😛
5 out 5 Dinner Plates yet again goes to Costanera Peruana Restaurant. It’s official Costanera is one of our favorite Restaurants to visit when dining out. Definitely worth every dollar spent. Pay Costanera a visit, believe us you won’t regret it! Till next food experience. This has been Costanera Peruana Restaurant Experience 2014!!! Pt.II by THEJNSREPORT.
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.
