Description: Orale Mexican Kitchen is a street themed Mexican restaurant with our menu ranging from unique tacos like our famous Taco machin with bone marrow and carnitas. We offer a full bar with an extensive Tequila list and over 20 specialty cocktails that were created by some of the leading mixologists in the country. OMK is a lively restaurant with adventurous food and great cocktails. Our food takes more of the small plate route so if you are looking for mommas old school cooking and gigantic plates you will not see that here. Come join us for a great evening out.

Mexico City comes to Jersey City! Great friendly staff who care and treat you like family! Awesome food with great portions and less not forget the margaritas! Also, great back room for quiet dinners along a great group front area!

“Great place to eat in Jersey City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

We had a large group in from out of town eat here on a Saturday for lunch. It was great. Very friendly staff with excellent service.
To eat I asked for the Tortada Mexicana but with chicken instead of beef. It came with french fries.
My wife had the tuna tacos which were very good too. The carnitas were the best. Each of these cost just $16.
To drink we tried all 3 sangrias.
The music they played was along the rock genre like Def Leppard and Goo Goo Dolls which was an interesting choice for a Mexican restaurant.
The place was very clean and I really liked the colorful decor of sombreros and sugar skulls.
A must try in Jersey City.

“Perfect girls night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

Orale has definitely become one of my favorite restaurants in Jersey City. I had the Carolina Barbacoa tacos, hands down one of the best tacos I have ever had. Their margaritas are also very good. For dessert we had the flan, which was superb. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was even better.

“more than mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

I like Mexican food, but you pretty much always know what you're getting and what the restaurant will look like. So this is a pleasant surprise. There's a tapas ambiance to the food and they've clearly worked at making the more traditional mexican food less...obvious. The place had a pleasant buzz to it on the Saturday we were there. Good times.
