When was the last time you left a Mexican restaurant not feeling stuffed, greasy and in need of a siesta? ...Still thinking? Yeah, so are we. Luckily, a trip to East Harlem’s Agua Fresca leaves you feeling happily satisfied and healthy. Yes, you read that right—healthy. The lack of oily preparation and the use of fresh local and organic products makes for both a delicious and health-conscious meal. Though a selection of six beers and seven wines adorn the menu, we recommend going for the refreshing sangria, which comes included in the unbeatable $9.95 weekend brunch special. To wash it all down, try the mouthwatering camarones y piña (shrimp and pineapple), guacamole ($7.95) or the best plantains ($3.95) in town. The rustic Mexican décor is bright, warm and inviting (try grabbing a seat on the cushioned window nook). For a full gourmet meal for less than the price of Chipotle, head on over today before word gets out and lines are around the block for this undiscovered hotspot.
