Looking for a place to go for a group dinner? Transport yourselves with Latin American cuisine in the Lower East Side at Macondo Taperia Latina. Offering Latin street food to the city, inspired from Venezuela, Barcelona, Mexico and Colombia. The best part is they have porron - a glass wine pitcher that you hold up and pour wine into your mouth that is shared at the table.
Chorishrimp - colombian chorizo, shrimp, albarino white wine, tomato, chili sauce, tostones, fu fu
Scallop Clam Tiradito - little neck clams, leche de tigre, tomato, rocotto pepper onion, cilantro, crispy serrano ham *
Salmon Salad- seared salmon with julienne cucumber, carrots, radish, arugula and walnuts in a passion fruit-mustard sauce *
Pato Arepas - duck confit with collard greens, figs and guava-demi sauce
Cochinillo Al Garlic Mojo - roasted pork with yuca purée and pineapple-aji amarillo mojo
Crema Catalana - vanilla custard caramelized sugar
The atmosphere is great for a night out with a group of friends. The service was once spotty - had an incident once a long time ago but wasn’t a deal breaker. We went back for more. Be sure to check it out and have a porron or two!
