Upscale Mexican Street Food Temerario Chelsea Review

August 23, 2021

Finally, I ventured out into the city for some brunch, and this new spot made the trip well worth it. We tried Temerario in Chelsea and were definitely not disappointed. Upscale Mexican Street food is the name of the game here. This spot is owned by restauranteur Jorge Guzman of Ofrenda and hotspot The Black Ant. The chef is Mario Hernandez of The Black Ant and La Esquina which has some of my favorite Mexican food in Manhattan. We came across it during a Pulsd promotion (basically like Groupon) and were extremely pleased with everything from A-Z.

We had some Mango Margaritas and were expecting to get two each as per the Pulsd promotion but ended up with a pitcher. This margarita was absolutely delicious and I love the fact that it was on the strong side but made with the actual pulp of real mangos. One of the best I have had. Speaking of the best I have ever had – this guacamole – is definitely the best I have ever had. I don’t know what exactly sets it apart from the rest but it is just so creamy and has the most amazing flavor. I even like the little addition of the apple garnish. All guacamoles are definitely not created equal.

Guacamole
Avocado, cilantro, onion, chile serrano, queso fresco, crispy quinoa, tostadas
TEMERARIO BURGER
Chile ashed brioche, negra modelo glaze, manzano cream, gruyere cheese, homemade potatoes

Both the entrees that we tried were also absolutely delicious.The burger was well cooked and very tasty, a combination of flavors that is definitely out of the ordinary as well. Also, I am no expert on enchiladas but to me these were phenomenal.

ENCHILADAS VERDES
Corn tortilla filled with pulled chicken breast, green salsa, chihuahua cheese, avocado, black beans

Food wise, I highly recommend all these choices and it was definitely a 10/10. Furthermore, the interior is so trendy and very urban instagram chic. There is plenty to work with if you’re looking to take those gram worthy photos. Another thing to note is the awesome and friendly wait staff. Overall, you will be so satisfied with your experience at Temerario Chelsea, we definitely were.
