Sabores Restaurante Mexicano – Evicted

Sabores restaurant in Hoboken – poof!

Got this message just now: “Sad to hear Sabores owners were evicted. Restaurant will be missed.”

Hmm. They just miss the restaurant?

No compassion for the property landlord who was quite possibly getting stiffed?

That’s like saying you miss a criminal who got locked up because the victim successfully pressed charges.

Who knows – maybe rents are too high for non-chain businesses to survive in Hoboken. Look at all the chains or “multi-location” places sweeping in – like Pita Pit, BareBurger, Luke’s Lobster, etc.

Maybe it just boils down to “it’s too late to think about starting a business in Hoboken?” (Some previous exceptions apply – like Taco Truck [good timing] and Little City Books [crowd-funding], etc.)

Oh well – better luck to the next occupants.

Sabores – Authentic Mexican Cuisine coming to Hoboken, NJ

9/11/2012 Update:

Here’s a quick “good news” update to the doomed Sol Caribe Latin restaurant at 518 Washington St.

They have new owners – and will be opening this month: Sabores Restaurante Mexicano.

The owner told me it will be real, “authentic” Mexican cuisine, and they want to be open ASAP (they told me the 15th – but take that with a grain of salt…)

I wonder with the sub-standard East LA – and the even more sub-standard Fresh Tortillas Grill just doors down, which ones will survive and which will fail? Because three Mexican places on the same block doesn’t sound promising.

Will this historically doomed location play a role in the future? What if they have good food at good prices?

I ate there last night and happy to report that we had an excellent meal. I am excited for a traditional mexican restaurant. I was never a big fan of charritos or East LA. Food was very fresh and tasty. If you like fried “americanized mexican food” this is probably not the place for you. I am excited to try some of their different options soon. As well as their white sangria mix looked great. BYOB so dont forget the white wine.

I’ve eaten at this restaurant three times now since it opened a month ago and I can honestly say they have the best Mexican food in Hoboken by a long shot. Charrito’s downtown used to be my go-to place but this place is just way better. Everything is fresh and authentic and not greasy. The appetizers and main dishes are amazing and so is the guacamole and salsa. The staff is very attentive and friendly and the hostess told us that many of the recipes come from her grandmother. It also has a nice atmosphere and is colorful and not crowded. I know this location has been cursed for years but I really hope this place lasts. It’s so good.


I hope authentic means lengua tacos and house made corn tortillas…


Will the “Authentic” Mexican experience include getting beheaded by a Drug Cartel member?


Looking forward to checking it out!
