Los Tres Potrillos


Sunset Park is not really the type of place that people go out drinking at bars, as most of its residents are families and from places where drinking culture requires meals to be involved as well. One place that is an exception to this rule and has a real bar is Los Tres Potrillos on the north side of the neighborhood. With a couple TVs usually showing football, I have been using it every once in a while to have a few beers during a Liga MX match or just when mood required getting out of the house.

Besides the bar and nice staff, one of the things that keeps me returning is their amazing plate of house nachos. Sometimes you just need nachos, and the nachos los tres potrillos ($12.95, below) is possibly as good as it gets. There are a few meat options, but the al pastor is the best with these and also adds pineapple to the rest of the numerous ingredients.

From the tortilla chips up, there are beans and meat at the base all covered with a thick stringy layer of melted cheese. Green peppers, jalapeños, lettuce, nice fresh red tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms, and crumbly white cheese are all in there as well, and as you can see a nice dollop of guacamole finishes the top.

Bring a friend, you don't want to try and eat everything yourself.

After quite a few plates of these, I started ordering other things and have realized that the kitchen seems strong in all areas. It makes sense since the place is always filled with groups of different families and friends eating joyfully. Once I even noticed a child was having their birthday party here.

Another drinking favorite is the classic Tex-Mex chimichanga ($12.95, above), which pairs excellently with the carne asada. If you have never had one before, this dish is basically a California-style burrito deep fried. They smother it in both red and green salsa, then crema y queso, resulting in the big beauty above.

Breakfast is available all day, including their chilaquiles ($12.95, below), here ordered with cecina given in a very generous portion. The green sauce is right on point and all the flavors are just right. If you prefer American breakfasts they can do that too.

Even an order of one tostada de tinga ($4, below) arrives as a mountain of food, albeit a bit smaller than the other mountains. Besides the pulled chipotle-spiced chicken, layers of beans, lettuce, tomatoes, crema, cheese, and guacamole serve all your tastebuds.

An array of fresh juices are also available.
