Weekday Lunch at Don Nico's

Don Nico's
9-43 Dekalb Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11201
718.288.0107

I can't believe I haven't written a review on the blog about this cute, little Mexican spot I like to go to nearby my office. Don Nico's is a cute and random foodstand because it's surrounded by many retail shops and it just pops out.

A colleague that I work very close with has been to Don Nico's a few times and have recommended it to me. He recommended me to try the Chicken Torta but I was hesitant for a bit.

During the times I went I've always got their tacos which costs under $7.00. However, last year I decided to try out something new instead that's worthy of sharing on the blog.

Chicken Torta
So I finally listened to my colleague and got the Chicken Torta ($8.00). I really wasn't expecting it to be so massive. The sandwich was literally bigger and wider than my hand.

The sandwich was made with Mexican bread and filled with grilled chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, and with Mexican white cheese. There was also Chipotle mayo. I really enjoyed it. I mean everything about it was spot on delicious! 

The bread was fresh and crunchy. The chicken was grilled to perfection, not dry at all. The Chipotle mayo gave the sandwich a splash of spice, but it was bearable. I was so full that I couldn't finish the other half of the sandwich.

Chips with Pico De Gallo & Guacamole
I was craving for this so I ordered the chips which came with a side of guacamole and pico de gallo ($5.00) I wasn't a fan of pico de gallo as it was very strong. The guacamole was close to perfection, but was missing a key ingredient - lime. The guacamole tasted creamy and smooth, but a little bit of lime juice would have been a great addition.

Overall, I was really satisfied with my lunch. The sandwich was amazing and I am glad my colleague recommended it to me. It was a good meal to end the last work day of 2014. I will definitely be back again for their Chicken Torta, but should probably give the other half to someone else since I know I won't be able to finish it.
