The Tri-State’s Largest Tequila Selection Exists at This NJ Restaurant

by Tom Lavecchia

Right in the middle of Metuchen, New Jersey, set at Metuchen Plaza, Meximodo crashes onto the foodie radar with a bang, tipping its hat to the colorful world of Mexican eats and culture. Stepping through the door here is like stumbling into a sensory bash—the walls decked out with pops of color and funky art that scream Mexico’s artsy vibe, while the cozy lighting sets the mood for a chill hangout. But what really makes Meximodo sparkle is its genius mix of cutting-edge cooking and classic Mexican flavors. 

A Culinary Journey Through Mexico

Meximodo’s menu offers a thoughtful exploration of Mexico’s diverse culinary landscape. Here, you’re in for a tasty trip through regional specialties. Picture this: tender Cochinita Pibil, a slow-roasted pork dish kissed by achiote paste straight from the Yucatan Peninsula, or the velvety, smoky mole poblano, a sauce with roots in Puebla, each dish bursting with its own Mexican flair.

Executive Chef Antonio Carballo walks the line between tradition and innovation with finesse. Take, for example, the irresistible Camarones a la Diabla (Devil’s Shrimp). Plump shrimp luxuriate in a spicy guajillo chile sauce, a nod to Oaxacan tradition. But here’s the twist: Chef Carballo adds charred pineapple, a subtle sweetness that tempers the heat just right.


Tacos – Meximodo

A Feast for the Eyes and the Palate

At Meximodo, presentation is an art—each dish pops on vibrant plates, meticulously decked out with edible flowers, fresh herbs, and zesty salsas. Now, let’s talk guacamole – a masterpiece of creamy avocado, lime, cilantro, and just a hint of jalapeño. And those house-made tortilla chips? They’re dangerously good.

For veggie lovers, Meximodo’s got your back. Check out the Rajas Poblanas – roasted poblano peppers swimming in a creamy walnut sauce, a veggie dream with layers of flavor. And don’t miss the Nopales con Hongos – cactus paddles mingling with mushrooms, proving Mexican cuisine’s versatility.

The World’s Largest Tequila and Agave Selection 

You can’t talk about Meximodo without diving into their epic tequila and agave game. They proudly claim the title of “world’s largest tequila and agave selection,” and for good reason. Shelves stacked high with tequilas, mezcals, and all sorts of agave-based spirits to tickle your taste buds. Whether you’re a tequila pro or just dipping your toes, the bartenders here got your back. They’ll navigate you through the agave maze, helping you find the perfect match for your meal. Cheers to that!

Cocktails that Elevate the Experience

Don’t sleep on Meximodo’s cocktail menu – it’s no joke. Think carefully curated, innovative drinks that take your dining experience to the next level. Skilled bartenders whipping up fresh, seasonal concoctions with top-notch spirits. One sip and you’re hooked. And let’s talk about the “Oaxacan Old Fashioned” – a smoky, mezcal-infused masterpiece that’s a must for anyone craving a bold, sophisticated sip. Trust us, you won’t regret it.

Meximodo isn’t just a spot to grab a bite – it’s an adventure through the diverse fabrics of Mexican cuisine and culture.
