Hoboken is also home to my favorite baker, Buddy, of Carlos Bake Shop. Sadly the bakery was closed but I peaked inside and it looked amazing, next time I come I will definitely be one of those crazy people waiting in line to get in.
After humoring me by showing be the Bake Shop, we go and put our name down at this restaurant called Charrito's.
We come back to check on the table, and the server tells us another 15-20 minutes so we decide to go to the Whiskey Bar next door. They had a $7 cover so we walked out but the bouncers let us go in for free because we were only going in to get a drink before dinner. We ordered a whiskey sour and split it because you had to have a minimum of $35 to use a credit card and we only had $10 in cash, kind of inconvenient. As far as the drink goes it was very good $7 (as it should be-it's a whiskey bar). This is a type of place I would want to come back if I was planning on going out in Hoboken.
$9 was delicious-we bought a $7 bottle of Malbec to use for the drink. I would have preferred more of a variety of fruit in it-they only put in apples, but it was still very good. We decided to split the appetizer Flautas de Harina $8 which were pretty tasty but the guacamole is still the star of this establishment. The pico de gallo served on the side was excellent.
Next time I am in Hoboken I want to come back here for some guacamole and sangria, and then try one of the many other restaurants on this street.
