Working around the corner, I’ve passed by Antojeria La Popular plenty of times & have always made a mental note to stop by and taste the menu.

However, it wasn’t until I found out that they had a gluten-free menu that I set the gears in motion and ended up there for a late afternoon Mexican lunch break.

From the team behind Taka Taka and Viva La Crepe, Antojeria (aka Mexican street snacks eatery) La Popular is a Mexican tapas joint on Spring St. in Nolita.

Their menu consists of various ceviches, tacos and tostados, including a cricket option. Yes, as in the insect. I actually asked the waitress what it was and her response was, “cricket, like the bug”. Pass!

Instead, I got the following:

(GF) Zihuatanejo: tilapia, cucumber, cilantro, mango, red onion & habanero

(GF) Yucatan: guacamole, habanero, queso fresco & chicharron, pork rinds

Everything was delicious but my absolute favorite was the quesadilla. The corn tortilla was soft and the cheese was perfectly melted.

I also grabbed a beverage:

(GF) Rosarita blood orange, agave, lime prosecco

No dessert for me but they do offer a flourless chocolate cake – put on the menu by the manager who happens to be gluten-free.
