I have been visiting Dos Caminos for years! I have bounced back and forth between the Third Avenue and Soho location before finding my home at the Soho location. Despite being noticeably smaller than the Third Avenue location, the outside patio in the middle of Soho is the perfect ambiance for brunch. This leads me to my next point; I prefer brunch at Dos Caminos compared to lunch/dinner. However, if you are in the midtown area and need a vibrant place to have an after work drink, I highly recommend the Third Avenue location. Overall, my food favorites at Dos Caminos include:
The Guacamole. Despite being at this restaurant over 15 times, I have never taken a picture of Guacamole. (silly food blogger). Nevertheless, it is absolutely the best I’ve tried in NYC thus far and I think you should try it also. Next time when I visit, I will ensure that I take a picture!
Next, the Mexican corn is to die for!!! Dos Caminos’ version of this Mexican favorite is served with butter, mayo, grated Cotija cheese, chili, and some lime wedges. Try it and you will love it! It’s a side item priced at $5 and very well worth it.
As far as brunch dishes, you must try the Mexican French Toast, which is topped with some rum and roasted bananas. Need I say more?
I have also grown very fond of the steak and eggs, which is highlighted with some very tasty beans and hash browns.
If you’re going for lunch/dinner, I would stay away from the tacos as they are just boring options in my opinion. However, the Dos Enchiladas are delicious and the Shrimp Quesadilla, is an upscale fancy dish to give a try.
