You have probably passed La Tiendita on North Monroe Street and done one of two things. Completely ignored its existence, or taken one look at the small store front covered with Spanish signs and red metal bars and kept on driving. I had heard the small bodega served up some of the city’s finest Mexican food, and with my friend Tom in tow we decided to pay La Tiendita a visit
La Tiendita’s parking lot is small and on the day we stopped in a large pile of construction materials was piled near the building. A green awning shaded the entrance and opening the front door revealed a large mostly empty rectangular space. A cash register and a few small drink coolers occupied the front. Towards the back several tables with plastic table clothes and folding chairs provided seating. The walls were a deep salmon color and the floors lightly colored wood.
