|Ho' Brah A Taco Joint|

Review By: Thomas Rafael
Surf's up at Ho' Brah, a new taco joint in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, where the food is Mexican and the margaritas are flowing. The inspiration of a group of New York's Bravest, Ho' Brah (which means "hey brother" in surfer slang) is taking the Hawaiian surfer theme to the max, from a surfboard detailing the menu outside to a huge surfer mural and surfboards on the ceiling inside.
Ho' Brah's menu also doesn't disappoint, dishing up everything you'd expect to find at a good taco joint; freshly-made tacos, burritos, empanadas and ceviche (although the menu is still a work in progress). Our meal began with a bowl of guacamole that was bright and flavorful, served with a huge basket of colorful tortilla chips ($7.95). A traditional pesole soup made with shrimp is delicious and worth seeking out ($7). So are the bistec tacos ($3.95); charred beef slices stuffed into soft tortillas with a bit of shredded slaw. The Diablo Diego tacos made with shrimp ($3.95) offer a nice spicy kick. One of my dining companions enjoyed a smoky chorizo taco ($6.70) served with a side of rice and black beans.
Ho' Brah is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Aloha!
