Have Some Mexican Food in Style at Pedro’s Kitchen and Brew

I stumbled upon this hidden gem about a month ago after spending about an hour rummaging through trash cans for food. Sad, I know, but I had little money on me and a half-eaten panini was not going to suffice. (Please don’t judge me for being a fat-ass, as well as a broke-ass. I’m sensitive.) Once I saw myself succumbing to defeat at the hands of a homeless hipster over two pizza crusts, I nearly waived the white flag of death by starvation. That is until my eyes saw a glimmer of hope: Pedro’s Kitchen & Brew. It stood before me in all its glory, and I was saved.

I stumbled into the restaurant, sat at the bar and ordered four tacos for $12. The Peruvian guy behind the bar recommended their main special of three tacos and a beer for $10. So I took the wise bartender’s recommendation, switching the fourth taco for a beer and waited for my food. There’s a small selection of bottled beer, including Corona, Pacifico, Tecate, Modelo, Heineken and Coors Light. I opted for some Modelo as I took in the Pedro’s Mesoamerican influenced atmosphere.

Pedro’s is unique in that it doesn’t try to categorize itself in one particular field. The place is cozy and it’s split into three separate areas: you have the lounge area with two couches and a small dance floor (at night), the bar area and you have your dining area. At night the place can get packed with patrons looking to dine and have a fun time.

The tamales here are $8, wings ranchero $7, burritos $10, quesadillas $11 and it is $8 per glass of wine. Even though it may be a bit pricey at $14, I’d definitely recommend the Super Nachos, because you can split them with three friends and it’ll fill you right up. Trust me, my failed attempt at trying to devour this dish ended horribly.

If you happen to get to Pedro’s early during the week, you just might have the place to yourself and you can just kick back and enjoy the Spanish music blasting from the speakers.

My father came, my mother saw...and I conquered. I encourage children to do drugs, I buy alcohol for teenagers, and I drink beer with the homeless. In my spare time, I attend art galleries for the FREE booze while rubbing elbows with modish elephants. I also hammer six-inch nails into small penises. Stuart knighted me as Broke-Ass King of New York. You've been warned.
