Good Food New Jersey stopped by to visit Chevys Fresh Mex looking to get some street cred. Street style menu that is, their special menu of classic Mexican with some spin. Off that menu we sampled two varieties of Street Taco’s, and Street Style Corn.
Street Style Corn
Street Style Corn> Invited us to summer again, beautiful simple presentation. We dove in and found complex flavors that had us rarely taking our mouths away from the ear. Grilled and topped with Cotija Cheese and Cilantro, spices and a Chevys secret sauce. The secret? They didn’t divulge but, we are going to say buttery sweet goodness! A great starter that will take you to heights unknown in the world of corn on the cob.
Street Taco’s, we chose 2 the chicken and the steak. Smartly presented soft taco’s, sided with lettuce, avocado, and a house salsa. Steak Taco’s cut in small pieces for easy eating, marinated and super tender. We tried one with avocado, another with lettuce and finally the third with lettuce, avocado and salsa. Fantastic each in their own right, our favorite combo was all three ingredients. Thinking it couldn’t get better we moved to the Chicken Taco’s. Fresh marinated chicken, perfectly cooked and with the same sides as the steak, a tough task to say we liked one better than the other. Both included a deliciously fresh cilantro/onion mix.
From the everyday menu we ordered the Border Wings . Going with the Mexican BBQ was a great choice we must say! Crispy skin wings in a sweet and spicy BBQ sauce that were perfectly cooked, YUM! Excellent starter or a meal on their own, a generous serving that’ll have you licking your fingers often.
Closed out with dessert, a new item at Chevys, Tres Leches Cake. Traditional Mexican favorite, our first time experiencing. Rich and sweet, a sponge cake with 3 kinds of milk. Sponge cake was delicious on its own. Add a bit of whipped cream, a decadent dessert that we’ll certainly look forward to getting again.
Great service, warm surroundings and exceptional food. Chevys Fresh Mex, stop by and get some street cred from the Street Style Menu or from their standard menu and let us know when you go!
