Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Tortuga's Cocina in Lambertville.
Tortuga's Cocina keeps belly bearings delectably lubricated with an expansive menu of tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and more. Dull appetites can be sharpened to deadly keenness with starters such as the guacamole dip ($9 for lunch, $10 for dinner) or the nachos supreme, layered with refried beans, ground beef, melted cheese, jalapeños, and sour cream ($12). With their bellies properly primed, diners can dig into house specials such as the chipotle shrimp, ($18), or the pollo mole, a boneless chicken breast marinated in chilis and slathered with a cocoa-based mole sauce ($16).
A full bar serves ensures proper hydration with its selection of wine, beer, and margaritas, and a cozy, warm-hued dining room lets diners chew, slurp, and sip in utter comfort. An outdoor patio is also available for al-fresco dining when the weather is cooperative, allowing eaters to enjoy bites of Sante Fe burritos in the soothing light of unrelenting solar storms ($13).
- It is a definite find. All of the appetizers were fresh and delicious. My wife loved the mole sauce and my seafood enchiladas were fresh and delicious. – Maxebird, TripAdvisor
- tortuga's quality is excellent, and more than that - it is consistent. their pico de gallo is among the best i've ever had. the fajitas are to die for, with more than enough left over for lunch – Kristen F., Yelp, 1/19/11
