Sneak Peak: Rosa Mexicano to introduce delicious new menu items!

Last night, I had the pleasure of being invited to an "Exclusive Blogger Tasting Event" for Rosa Mexicano's new menu rollout!

 

Not to worry, my fellow die-hard Rosa fans, you can still enjoy all of the staples on the original menu.  It's just that, now, there's even more to love!  And best of all?  The new items are as delicious as they are reasonably priced.

Tacos de Hamachi, $15  Mini hard-shell tacos filled with diced yellowtail, bacon, serrano chile, arugula, and truffle oil.

 

Tiradito de Callo de Hacha, $13  Marinated scallops, burnt orange-chile vinaigrette, grilled pineapple, poblano peppers and hazelnuts.

 

Vegetales Tacos, $9-$11 (lunch vs. dinner)  Local vegetables from Satur & BloomingHill farms, Burns Farms huitlacoche, silken tofu, pickled cabbage puree and Poc Chuc salsa.

 

Panza con Callos de Hacha Tacos, $14  Seared diver scallops, crisp Kurobuta pork belly, orange-habanero salsa.

 

Carnitas de Borrego Tacos, $12-$14 (lunch vs. dinner)  Roasted American lamb, marinated cucumbers, pistachio-habanero puree, mint salsa verde.

 

Pollo Yucateco Tacos, $10-$12 (lunch vs. dinner)  Spiced organic chicken, plantains, sweet peppers, chile de arbol salsa, crema.

 

Carne Asada Tacos, $12-$14 (lunch vs. dinner)  Ancho-rubbed Harris Ranch skirt steak, white beans, radish salad and cana de cama crema.

 

Pescado de Baja Tacos, $10-$12 (lunch vs. dinner)   Line-caught crispy local fish, jalapeno tartar sauce, flour tortilla.

 

Papas Fritas con Mole, $5-$6 (lunch vs. dinner)  Hand-cut garlic French fries with mole.

Now, as if all of the above wasn't enough to nosh on, Rosa generously provided us bloggers with two of the legendary menu items that originally put them on the map...

 

Frozen Pomegranate Margarita, $11.50  Silver tequila, pomegranate and lime juices, frozen to perfection.

 

Guacamole en Molcajete, $14  Famous tableside preparation served with two salsas and tortillas.

Here are some delicious tidbits of information that I learned at the event last night:

  • Now serving...Taco & Tequila Flights! 
  • The bar only uses fresh lime juice and agave nectar in their margaritas.  In *all* of their margaritas!
  • Rosa has a location in Panama City, Panama!
  • ...but NYC is the restaurant's birth place.  In fact, Rosa is headquartered right here in Midtown!
  • For 2012, Chef Jonathan Waxman is Rosa's Culinary Advisor.  Pretty cool, eh?

 

My favorite item on the new menu is:

  • Pescado de Baja Tacos

 

Did you know:

  • Rosa has an incredibly delicious and affordable happy hour program!  Click here to check out the menu/details.

Until we eat again,
