Before our show at Cake Shop, we grabbed some $4 Quesadillas and $3 beers (the Mon/Tues/Wed deal) at El Nuevo Amanecer around the corner. The choices are chicken, beef or cheese. But if you say veggie thinking it’s the cheese, you’ll be paying $7. We learned that the hard way. It’s not amazing food, but a pretty good deal for the Lower East Side. I think chicken is the way to go. The red salsa is kinda bland. You ask for hot sauce and they give you Tobasco. Not knocking the Tobasco, but I’ve never seen that as the sole Mexican restaurant hot sauce ever. Oh yeah, Chipotle does that. That’s weird.
