Let’s Talk About Mex, Baby

Enchiladas, micheladas, empanadas, tostadas…  These are a few of our favorite Mexican things! Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, commemorating the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces on May 5, 1862 at the Battle of Puebla. The occasion has since expanded into a celebration of Mexican cuisine, culture and music. Here’s where you’ll find the party in Brooklyn. Salud!
