Vega Mexican Cuisine

189 E Hartsdale Ave, Hartsdale; 914.723.0100

The food at Vega is a flavorful nod to Mexico, from the classics (tacos, burritos, and enchiladas) to the bold (adobo-marinated “shrimp diabla” with jalapeño onion sauce). The dish of the evening will be slow cooked tender pork. Be one of the first 25 customers and receive a complimentary margarita with each entrée. There will also be drink specials and more festive offerings.
