Nommin’ Out: El Centro

13 Sep

El Centro on 14th Street NW is a mexican gem.  A DC happy hour favorite, this two story restaurant also has brunch and late night menus available.  The second story is a funky rooftop, a great meetup spot now that it’s September and not a bazillion degrees outside (hopefully?). I have only been for the happy hour- mostly due to $4 house margaritas and $6 guacamole, which they make in front of you.  There are however a plethora of other options.  The happy hours drinks include several types of bottled beer, house wine, margaritas and sangria, available from 5-7pm nightly.  The food happy hour options are extended, including 2 tacos for $6, available from 5-9pm nightly.  Pictured above are the Duck Alambre tacos, which while not on the happy hour taco menu, are definitely worth the $13.95.  Topped with cotija cheese and roasted corn, the taco trio comes with mexican rice and refried beans, SUPER filling!  The duck is definitely a stronger flavor and I only advise it to those who know they like it.  I’ve also had the Grilled Steak tacos, which are available on the happy hour menu and satisfy meat cravings without overwhelming with a specific flavor.

In conclusion, the bartenders are enthusiastic, the food is yummy and affordable, and the happy hour drink options are plentiful.  Snatch a rooftop bar stool and see where the wind blows you….
