La Sirenita

La Sirenita, 4911 Edmonston Road, Hyattsville, MD, 301-864-0188, just a bit off Kenilworth Avenue (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Washingtonian | WaPo | City Paper | Don Rockwell | openlist | Yelp ]
The best chile relleno around, and also the best beans. Excellent posole. I have yet to try the fried quail. The waitress recommends the “stripe soup.” They get an A+ for atmosphere, recommended.

    I’ve been to La Sirenita once, and loved it. I had the chile relleno, and it was excellent. This place was recommended to me by a woman who works at the Mexican Embassy, and I agree with her assessment that it is the best Mexican food in the DC area. I just wish it were closer to DC so I could go more often.

    I love La Sirenita. The tamales are my favorite (and so cheap!). I don’t like going at night, though, cause the neighborhood can feel seedy. Also, their cash machine is broken and I don’t think they take cards.

    This restaurant does take credit cards – but cash is best. It is not unsafe at night. Parking is right in front of the restaurant. Glad to have this place 5 minutes from my home – fantastic, authentic Mexican food. Beats having to get on a plane to Mexico!

    For Mexican food on the east coast, this restaurant was alright. Compared to what’s on offer out west, though, I give this place’s food a mediocre rating at best.

    I love love love their chiles rellenos. Haven’t found any other place that makes them right like sirenita’s does.

    Try La Fondita – its less than .5 mile away from La Sirenita. I think its owned by the same family but the menu is paired down but amazing!
