There’s a new restaurant where the short-lived Alien Cafe used to be right off the Grand St L stop –Pedro’s II Dumbo …but in East Williamsburg. Dang, this is that Mexican restaurant in Dumbo that sticks out like it’s the only restaurant in the area, at least back in the day from my memory of walking around Dumbo off the York stop.

I remember eating here in Dumbo with an old girlfriend and her friends. A live DVD of Shakira was playing on the TV and my girlfriend was making fun of her. I don’t know why, but I got really upset. I remember talking to my friend later that night about how I feel like breaking up with her because of that. I didn’t realize Shakira was such a touchy subject in my life. I actually don’t know much about her. But now you know not to bad-mouth Shakira in front of me.

Anyway, I stopped into this new Pedro’s in Williamsburg for brunch. I wanted some Mexican breakfast. I saw the sign outside for the Huevos Rancheros with Mimosa for $11 and ordered that. It’s actually about the same price any time of the day for that combo. If I knew that, I’d probably try a burrito or tortas, since that sounded heartier for the price.

No regrets though. Although, the Huevos Ranchos looked a little skimpy on the plate. I couldn’t tell there was a corn tortilla underneath that fried egg. But mixed all together with the beans and the hot sauce in the small Corona bottle, it tasted pretty good. I enjoyed it. Mimosa was tasty!

I’d come back again. Probably for the Happy Hour $3 beer (4-8pm). The waitress was nice. They had college basketball on TV. No Shakira.

    Gawd those beans look good. They’re called “Frijoles de la Olla”, literally “beans of/from the pot.” These are what they make refried beans from but I like them much more this way. Yum! You can get these in some Mexican restaurants if you ask. It’s amazing how many places don’t have them though.

    The portions look awfully small. I need to eat 5 of those to fill me up.

    Try Five Burros in Queens if you get a chance. Best Tex-Mex in metro area.
