Jungle Lime Mexican Grill
Located on ninth ave. between 53rd and 54th diagonally across from El Centro a great corner Mexican mainstay, Jungle Lime serves healthier Mexican fare. A narrow space with jungle vines and exposed brick, the design makes good use of the small space. A bottomless chips and salsa was the really like a limey pico de gallo and was great. The cheesey Mexican corn was slathered with a bland Mexican velveeta. My chicken fajita was served with brown tortillas and the chicken itself was tough and flavorless. Oh, the accompanying guacamole was very good and served cleverly in a wooden salad bowl. The place was crowded and so was El Centro, so this spot hasn't really affected it's business. This Jungle Lime restaurant is very cheap with most dishes, like fajitas, burritos, and tacos are under $10. They also serve organic wine here, so it is a healthier option if that is what you are seeking.
