I recently wrote about the return of Pedro El Cevichero to the streets of Jackson Heights. This past weekend I checked out his new digs. Pedro has taken his old sign reading La Esquina Del Camaron Mexicano, or “the corner of Mexican shrimp,” with him and he’s gained three helpers. By the time I got to him I felt like I’d already eaten my way through half of Thailand. So in lieu of eating a coktel de camaron, I took a mouth-watering photo of a pair of freshly made ones. I can’t wait to go back and try the first coktel of what are sure to be many. Shrimp coktels are available in three sizes ($8, $10, $12). The excellent mixto, shrimp and octopus is ($6, $8, $10). Find Pedro on weekends at Roosevelt Ave. and 80th St. from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Today at 12:30pm Pedro had 2 helpers, a line 10 deep and a mixto special that included 6 huge oysters. Awsome.
Go often.. but go early!
Ay que bueno!!
Joe – Pedro is moving indoors for winter! Construction is going on and he is waiting on an inspection from the city to move into the back of the bodega behind his setup on Roosie & 80th. Cocktels year-round!
