17 Jul Sunday at Habana Outpost Brooklyn
Sunday at Habana Outpost Brooklyn was brilliant, because we literally had a day of traditional Mexican and Cuban inspired food and drink… can anyone say Frozen Margarita’s back to back at New York’s first solar powered restaurant Café Habana Outpost in Brooklyn. The weather was beautiful, the people are amazing and life was just beyond good. Located on 757 Fulton St in Fort Greene Brooklyn, Sunday’s are dubbed the best days to go past Habana Outpost because there is a DJ playing and the place is completely filled with people. The menu is made up of mexican favourites like tacos and their very popular grilled corn served with cotija cheese, chilli powder and lime as well as other strange things like the Roscoe On A Stick, which is the fried chicken and waffle on a stick served with maple syrup. I ordered a Mango and Jicama Salad and Chicken Taco… and let me say, I have never had a salad that good ever in my life. The chicken taco was average and lacked some of the flavour I expected to taste from a taco, however I was completely satisfied because it was better than some of the tacos I have had at Mexican restaurants here in South Africa.
Overall the best part about Habana Outpost is the ambience. Nothing gets better than sitting outside – if you arrive early – drinking really strong but delicious frozen margarita’s and enjoying some light and delicious Mexican food in Brooklyn New York, whilst laughing with your friends and listening to a female DJ drop MF DOOM’s “Accordian.”
