Lucha Lucha

OPENED1070 DAYS AGO

Lucha Lucha is a new Cali-style Mexican spot that has just opened in Bushwick. It’s no doubt that Californians have a great offering when it comes to Mexican food and, although NYC has an incredible offering too, it’s about time we mixed it up with some West Coast Cali-style Mexican fare on the East Coast.  Lucha Lucha already has one location in Brooklyn which opened two years ago in Bed-Stuy but now its expanded into Bushwick with its latest opening.

SoCal Mexican is slightly different to your average Mexican in NYC in that it’s more of a fusion of Mexican and Californian cuisines (so expect plenty of fries!) The menu focuses on favorites from the owner’s home town of San Diego like carne asada fries, tacos, nachos and an epic burrito called ‘The Giant’ which consists of two 14 inch tortillas stuffed with chorizo, steak, chicken, pinto beans, fries and eggs. Their emphasis on the sauces that come with the dishes is also what makes Lucha Lucha unique as it’s more common in California to have your bites of burrito with different sauces. They offer up three different sauces that are all homemade including a Salsa Verde, a smoky Chipotle and ‘electric orange Habanero carrot’ sauce.

Lucha Lucha has a gothic romance feel to it. The owners have managed to get a hold (we don’t know how) of pieces from the set of the film ‘Crimson Peak’ and have added many of these elements to the decor of the place. Stained glass also fills the spot and has been salvaged from an old church in Howard Beach. There is an outdoor patio for the warmer months full of colourful picnic benches too. Currently there is no liquor license but there are beers on offer until the license is accepted as well as a $4 happy hour from 3pm-7pm.
