A new alternative on Ninth Avenue
El Centro - the Hell's Kitchen Mexican place that sits in the cozy, but let's admit it, cramped space where Vynl used to be - almost always has a line out the door, whenever I stop by. Luckily, a formidable competitor has opened up down the street, and the salsa is so fresh and delicious I couldn't help remarking on it several times before we reached the bottom of the chips. It's called Lime Jungle, on Ninth Ave. between 53rd and 54th, and it's almost cheaper than it should be, for how good I found the food to be.
