60 Second Review: Ultramarinos

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “60 Second Review” series…]

Ultramarinos continues to impress Hoboken

I had a chance to stop in at Ultramarino’s (260 3rd St.) recently and was once again astounded by how delicious the food is. My light lunch included a few small empanadas (these are so spicy and flavorful!) and a pressed Cuban sandwich on a roll with some baked-in raisins. I’m not always a fan of dried fruits, but I’m glad I took a chance – the sandwich was delicious and the Dijon mustard and pickles were the perfect balance with the sweeter-than-normal roll.

Lastly, I got a “Hibiscus Cooler,” also known as “Agua de Jamaica.” It’s hard to describe this drink – like an chilled ruby-red herbal tea just a little sweet, but also tart. Definitely quenched my thirst!

Also, if you make it in this week, check out all the fresh Halloween treats and snacks!
