Dos Caminos

Dos Caminos {NYC}

For Valentine's Day, my wife and I decided to do Mexican. We used to opt for something other than Mexican (both of us having some not-so-great encounters in the past), but recently, we’ve had some positive experiences. What changed our opinion was easy: fresh. Dos Caminos was recommended by a few people, so we decided to give it a try. We knew we had to order the guacamole which is made fresh to order and served with a trio of fresh salsas. The guacamole was excellent; large chunks of avocado, hints of cilantro and lime, and a few diced tomatoes. The tomatoes were a nice touch, adding color and a little acid to cut through the creaminess. I ordered the Carnitas Tacos, and Marta ordered the Pollo Tacos. My order consisted of slow-roasted pork, green chili salsa, lettuce, and aged cotija cheese. The pork had great flavor and the lettuce on top had a citrus vinaigrette which gave me no reason to grab a lime. The cheese wasn’t overpowering and completed the taco with a nice finish.
