In my opinion, authentic Mexican restaurants are hard to come by in NYC. However, if you live in the Crown Heights neighborhood, you have been blessed with “Chavela’s”. Located conveniently on Franklin Avenue. Chavela’s is the perfect place to eat guacamole, drink plenty of margaritas/sangrias and enjoy delicious, authentic tacos. The prices are reasonable and the food is simply fantastic. I think the fish and pork tacos are the best. Don’t forget to order a batch of fresh, delicious and made-to-order guacamole. Overall, the combination of strong drinks with the fun atmosphere and delicious food, makes a trip over to Chavela’s in Brooklyn well worth it!
