Food trucks seem to be a dime a dozen in NYC. But, when one is successful enough to win Vendy Awards and stand the test of time (which is at least over a year, in my opinion), well, you know they're on to something good. Calexico is doing just that, and has since opened up a couple restaurant locations in addition to their trucks. I visited the Lower East Side location.
Calexico is a real place, and at the restaurant, they're serving California-Mexican cuisine. To start, I ordered their Jalapeño Mint Margarita (jalapeño infused exotico silver, combier, mint, jalapeño, lime, agave). I really loved this drink, it had a really great kick of heat, but also refreshing from the sweetness of the agave, the citrusy lime and the coolness of the mint.
