Packing Serious Heat Authentic Mexican Fare That Begs to Be Shared By KARLA COOK – THE NEW YORK TIMES

January 20, 2014

If you find yourself in Flemington, land of chain restaurants and outlet malls, and you hunger in your soul and in your belly for something more-maybe delicate tortilla chips with head-clearing salsa, tender lamb soup with cilantro, sharp and sweet cactus and jicama salad, succulent slabs of chiken enclosed in a house-made cloak of velvety masa drizzled with a piquant green sauce, or a round of dense and golden flan, then get off the main drag and go to Viva Mexico.

The restaurant is is a newish strip mall, with little character and even less parking unless you pull around back, where there is yet another ring of strip mall. Inside, the celling is low, the light bright and the floor tiled, all adding up, for me, to a generatly sinking feeling. But the place had come highly recommended, and any trepidation […]
