New York State of Mind

Rural New York in Summer.  Quiet, peaceful and good old American comfort food; MEXICAN!!

Hudson, New York, is one of those places that the "city folk" have turned around by moving in and rebuilding historic homes, opening new businesses including antique shops and restaurants.  One of those restaurants is Mexican Radio, an interesting name for a good place.

Many reviews include the lack of complimentary chips and salsa, the standard of any Mexican restaurant.  I'll explain.  Their reason for charging for this is everything is homemade; the chips, the salsa and maybe even the salt is mined locally.  The salsa is a LARGE portion as well as the chips, which tasted better than normal.  Maybe it's the oil.  If you don't want it, don't order it.  Just a suggestion.

I ordered fish tacos that came with beans and rice.  A platter of 3 good sized soft corn tortillas filled with batter fried Tilapia and something new;  pre-codimentized (is that a word?!?).
Guacamole, shredded cabbage and a crema sauce were already added.  This is great timesaver when you're contemplating sipping first, the beer or the tequila.

There are many choices on the menu, all of which have the Mexican Radio twist.  A decent selection selection of beers including local micro-brews as well as many tequilas to choose from, which make the whole trip complete.  Don't ask for mezcal, they don't have it.

Visit Mexican Radio, I did and was more than surprised.
