La Superior Restaurant Review

: The no-frills Williamsburg building with the plain façade is the perfect venue for this salt-of-the-earth Mexican eatery. The dozen-table interior, bedecked with old Mexican movie posters, fills up early with cheap-beer-quaffing hipsters. Friendly service and an affordable menu are appealing, of course, but the real reason to come here is for the hard-to-find Mexican delights: chicken slathered in a peanut-laced mole sauce; “torta ahogada" from Guadalajara, a pork confit-stuffed mound of sourdough bread topped with spicy arbol sauce; and several varieties of explosively tasty tacos (for just $3.50), including rajas (roasted poblano pepper strips). The brunch offers options like over-easy eggs with refried beans, rajas and fire-roasted tomato sauce; or even just a simple toasted baguette with refried black beans, melted cheese and pico de gallo. There’s nothing fancy about La Superior, but it may serve the most authentic Mexican cuisine this side of the East River.
