“Exceptional.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

Top Secret Mexican hidden away on the fringe of Sunnyside. Small, but warm and friendly, Real Santa Fe is the place you want to take your stuck-up friends from LA who insist they have the best Mexican food north of the border. Soccer (football) plays on the giant flat-screen while mariachi and traditional Mexican music fills the air. Carlos, the owner, seated us on a busy Sunday night and made us feel welcome (we were the only gringos). Maragaritas were as smooth as lemonade and the food - fresh, hot and flavorful. You can have all the usual Mexican staples if you want - but you'd be missing out on the inventive and exciting dishes offered. The braised pork shank is far and away the dish not to miss: falling off the bone and so succulent it didn't need sauce - but the sauce was wonderful. Salmon was light and glowed beautifully - the presentation on these dishes inspires picture-taking at the table. No room for dessert but tried the 3 Leche cake anyway. Stuffed is the way you leave Real Santa Fe - fat and happy. It's only been open for a year and there's a patio in the back that makes you hope winter flies by. Get there before it's overrun with hipsters.
