La Contenta NYC

After a long night of partying like it was 1999. Some friends and I decided to stop for some food. We stumbled upon La Contenta, located in the Lower East Side of NYC. It is a cozy Mexican restaurant with a very welcoming atmosphere.


This was the Michelada Al Pastor with beer, hot sauce, homemade pineapple sauce, lime, and salt pork skin around the rim. This drink was sour and salty and spicy deliciously wonderful while it lasted. This concoction did not mix well with my stomach so I probably will not order it again but it was very delicious.


These are the tacos de carne asada with grilled hanger steak, guacamole, and pico de gallo. I’m sorry the picture is so blurry but like I mentioned it was a very fun night. The steak was seasoned perfectly and so tender to the bite. The guacamole was paired well though I think you could have used a little bit more lime. I never know how to feel about tacos without cheese the tacos didn’t need the cheese but I definitely missed.

This place gets a 4 out of 5. Overall this place was nice, it had great service, I definitely felt welcomed even though we stumbled in at about 1 in the morning, we made it just in time to order food I would love to revisit this place. Check it out if you can!
