Celebrate National Guacamole Day on September 16

15Sep

No matter the upcharge, we’re all usually on the same page when it comes to guacamole – yes, please! No one can resist a hearty bowl of guacamole, especially if it’s freshly made and mixed with all of your favorite Mexican toppings alongside a bowl of tortilla chips.

Luckily, here in Jersey City, we have lots of authentic Mexican restaurants that specialize in guacamole which will have you coming back for dip after dip, especially on National Guacamole Day on September 16. You’ll certainly need a second order of chips – or two – to finish off these delectable bowls!

Orale Mexican Kitchen, located at 341 Grove St, Jersey City which is nine minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a buzzing hangout with quirky “Day of the Dead” decor, big tequila menu and classic comfort food.

Gringo’s, located at 12 Coles St, Jersey City which is seven minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a modern taqueria offering spirited takes on Mexican street food and a vast tequila collection.

Bringing Cinco de Mayo to Your Beacon Apartment

04May

We may not be able to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at our favorite Jersey City Mexican restaurants this year, but that certainly doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate! Thankfully, lots of local Mexican restaurants are currently hard at work cooking up authentic dishes available for takeout, and many deliver right to The Beacon! Just check your DoorDash, Seamless or Grub Hub account for the dozens of different options.

If you want to celebrate this fun holiday in your Beacon apartment with some delicious enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos and burritos, give these local Mexican eateries a call. Below are a few of our favorites for a Mexican meal.

Surf Taco – Located in Hoboken, but still close enough that they’ll deliver right to your Beacon apartment, Surf Taco isn’t the most authentic Mexican eatery in our area, but it’s certainly one of the most popular! With a baja California/Tex-Mex twist to their menu, Surf Taco’s delicious coastal takes on tacos and burritos will have you craving the sounds and sights of the NJ Shore (which don’t worry, is still opening up this summer!) We love their mango shrimp tacos for an extra summery vibe to your Cinco de Mayo.

Molcajetes – Located much closer to The Beacon, on the West Side of Jersey City, Molcajetes is another great option for getting a delicious Cinco de Mayo feast delivered right to your apartment. Much more authentic than other local places, Molcajetes packs in the flavors and the freshness with their homemade Mexicans meals. This place has all the traditional favorites like quesadillas and burritos that Americans love, and a ton of other delicious dishes, like nopales and cebollitas, that most Americans have yet to discover, give them a try this Cinco de Mayo!
