Estrellita Poblana V Restaurant

Estrellita Poblana V Restaurant

Allen's Enchiladas Suizas
It is not easy to find a Mexican restaurant that offers authentic Mexican cuisine in New York, but Estrellita Poblana in Riverdale (Bronx, NY) lives up to its claim. Before going to the restaurant, Allen and me ordered takeout and loved the food. Allen's cousin Rob was in town so Allen thought it would be a great restaurant to go dine in. We went to Estrellita Poblana V with Rob, his lovely daughter and her Mom.

Chips, Salsa and Guacamole
Estrellita Poblana is a small but cozy and inviting restaurant. The decor is nice and the restaurant was packed. Every single table was taken and there was a line waiting to be seated by the time we left. On Fridays, they have Mariachi Aguila de Plata performing from 7:00-9:00PM, which makes it a very festive and loud place. We ate there yesterday so we got to experience Mariachi and had to talk real loud to hear ourselves, but we had a great time. The menu is big and it took awhile for some of us (ahem, Robert) to decide what to order. There are also Daily Specials offered in addition to the fine menu selections.

Milanesa De Res
I ordered the Milanesa De Res (Breaded Steak) served with Frijoles Negros (Black Beans), Arroz (Mexican Rice) and Corn Tortillas. You get a generous serving and the food was some of the best tasting Mexican I have had aside from some Northern California restaurants I love. The seasoning on the Breaded Steak had bold flavors, but was not spicy and I ate it all. The Mexican Rice was seasoned perfectly and the Black Beans were superb. The Corn Tortillas were brought out in a Tortilla Warmer Basket. I rolled up some of my food in one of the Corn Tortillas and it was a perfect combination. Each table gets condiments Green Chile and Red Chile sauces, sliced pickled Jalapenos with Red Onions, sliced Cucumber and Lime to share and add to your food.

Green and Red Chile Sauce, Pickled Jalapeno and Onions, Cucumber, Lime
Allen ordered Enchiladas Suizas, Bistec (Steak) rolled in three soft Corn Tortillas in a creamy Chile Poblano Sauce, topped with sliced Red Onions, and Frijoles Negros (Black Beans) and Arroz (Mexican Rice). Allen loved the taste of the creamy Chile Poblano Sauce and the flavor of the authentic Mexican Rice. The Steak was finely chopped and seasoned well, but not spicy and the Black Beans were great.

We ordered Guacamole and it was one of the best we have eaten. The Guacamole was fresh and you could taste all the ingredients. The in-house Salsa served with the Corn Tortilla Chips was tangy and had a tinge of spice. Everyone enjoyed their food and it was real nice to spend time with family.

We recommend Estrellita Poblana V Restaurant if you want to experience great Mexican cuisine.
