This past week I met up with my girl, Clem, and got some food and drinks at the Lime Jungle, a restaurant that specializes in healthy Tex-Mex cuisine. Located in the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan, this restaurant actually has 2 locations within 3 blocks of each other. Not having done our research, we learned this little bit of information the hard way. Clem and I walked into the first location on 50th and 9th Ave., only to have the hostess say “We don’t serve alcohol here. Just dinner.” (Crickets chirping in the background) Well that was a deal breaker for us… So we ended up walking 3 blocks up the street to the Lime Jungle that did serve alcohol.

The restaurant on 53rd. is SUPER tiny compared to their location on 50th with limited seating. But we lucked out and found an empty table with our names on it. Starving, we immediately scoured the menu and ordered our food and drinks.
For Drinks: Clem ordered a Frozen Pomegranate Margarita and I got the Tropical Margarita.
But There’s A Silver Lining … The Drinks!
Thank goodness we went to the location that was serving alcohol because the drinks we ordered made up for the food big time. We ended up getting 2 rounds of the same drinks. I cannot speak for Clem but I personally recommend anyone who goes the Lime Jungle to order the Tropical Margarita. This cocktail is made up of equal parts: Half Frozen Sangria & Half Frozen Margarita.
