Pulqueria is a trendy, modern Mexican cantina in Manhattan�s Chinatown. In addition to its contemporary dining room and bar, there is a private dining room that can seat up to 15-person parties. The full bar features Mexican-inspired cocktails, and the kitchen serves only fresh, seasonally-driven cuisine that blends the flavors of Mexico into something new.
Pulqueria�s menu features a variety of small and large plates, and there are many vegetarian dishes, so there will be something for everyone on the menu. Start your meal at Pulqueria with some guacamole classico or empanadas with chorizo fried rice. Larger plates include the el pulp, langosta mole, camarones con harina de maiz and carne asada tacos.
It was my birthday and there was these loud and obnoxious behind us. They acted if they own the place. There's two areas one where you sit down and have dinner and another where you sit at bar area... ugh these guys couldn't shut up.
We loved the queso with mushrooms, the tuna to staffs and the shrimp and fish tacos. Drinks were also delicious.
First of all, I would like to point out that my friends and I were very excited about this place. The decor is nice. Too low lighted to my taste.
The food was okay. Not great. I've tried better Mexican and being a Mexican myself, trust me it was just okay.
Drinks, the 3 kind we tried which basically was the reason why we decided to go there was for the Pulque. My husband and friends who aren't from Mexico have never tried it and I wanted them to. We asked about just having the Pulque by itself but they don't serve it solo. Which is fine. So we decided to have the Lychee cocktail which according to the menu, has some Pulque on it. Well..it did not taste like Lychee or Pulque. It tasted like pure sugar with vodka..not Mezcal as it was on the menu. Vodka. So we decided to have another Pulque drink. Terrible idea. The tequila used in the drink was of the lowest quality and whoever designed the menu and liked it..should be having daiky
The food is delicious but the service is lacking.
Hidden gem in China town. The cocktails and food were amazing. Absolutely order the tacos, they were delicious and fresh. The atmosphere is unbeatable; very trendy and buzzing crowd. They also have a very happening happy hour in the bar area.
The fancy feel and high end cost of Mexican food located at surrounding relatively cheap Chinese food in Chinatown
The service was good! Everyone looked happy and smiles since we walked in. We had a great time. City prices of course and food portions were small but they were just enough for my husband and i. I would recommend this place for a night out or just to sit by the bar and enjoy a delicious drink. We will back soon!
The food portions are tiny and exorbitantly expensive. You'd need to order two plates just to feel semi-full. In addition, the service is so-so.
Do not order margaritas here and you'll be fine.
The food was excellent, although the tacos were kind of sparse. The drinks, soup, and the appetizers were amazing. In Mexico, pulque is the poor man's drink, but Pulqueria brings it to a whole new level. Our waiter was personable and fun. I love that it's a Mexican restaurant in the basement of Chinatown.
