  • Rave-Worthy Tacos (And More!) at Abril Cocina
    which opened in April There are Mexican themed pictures on the walls as well as an eye catching mural depicting significant locations in Maplewood The wood tables are set with dishcloths for napkins stemless glasses for wine a large bottle of water and a traditional Mexican plate that holds a candle Menu items are meant for sharing We started with pulpo tostadas containing sliced avocado red onion radishes tender pieces of octopus and shredded romaine topped with a spicy chipotle aioli The crunch from the tostadas and creamy avocado and aioli created a multi flavored dish with lots of textures The tacos are house made and we opted for the two well deserved winners from the NJ Taco Festival The smoked wild shrimp taco was presented in a smoke filled mason jar We were instructed to take the shrimp out of the jar place it in the quesadilla and dip it into a red chile sauce Equally impressive was the brisket taco with crema pickled celery and mustard seed that was accompanied by a spicy green chile sauce An entrée of juicy hanger steak came with rich fresh corn grits similar to a creamed corn and unlike anything we have had before We declared it a dish that we could not stop eating Vinegar onions offset the richness of the steak and an ancho umami sauce was streaked across the plate Three house made desserts were offered banana pudding buttermilk churros with dulce de leche and chocolate sauces and our pick of avocado chile ancho and Mexican hot chocolate ice creams Recommended Reading Three Cheers for Beer Think outside the box when it comes to Mexican food and give Abril Cocina a try Open Tuesday through Sunday from 5 PM Sunday brunch 11 AM to 1 PM Abril Cocina 175 Maplewood Avenue Maplewood 973 327 2023 BYO Pulpo Tostadas with octopus sliced avocado red onion radishes and shredded romaine topped with chipotle aioli Photo courtesy of Lowell Saferstein Please send press releases and restaurant news including information on staff changes wine tastings and cooking classes to rosie njmonthly com Get dining articles like this delivered straight to your inbox Read more Eat Drink Restaurant News Table Hopping with Rosie articles By submitting comments you grant permission for all or part of those comments to appear in the print edition of New Jersey Monthly Dining Podcast If you love dining out have a passion for great food or want to hear about the latest food trends our new podcast Eating With Eric should be on your plate Listen to episodes Subscribe in iTunes 7 Songs to Comfort Christie on His Failed Presidential Bid Podcast Why We re Called The Garden State Table Hopping Jersey Shore Restaurant Week Melange in Somerville A Dress For Every Occasion NJ Father and Son s Wines Win Big 7 Dining Trends to Watch in 2016 February 2016 Best New Restaurants Table of Contents Subscribe Give a Gift Locate a Newsstand Purchase back issues View older issues
