Hands down our favorite Mexican place in Williamsburg. Try the Brunch, it’s not to be missed. La Superior also gets extra points for carrying Mexican Coca-Cola which is the way to our hearts.

If you want authentic Mexican food in Williamsburg, look no further than the street — Berry Street, that is. La Superior… serves Mexican “comida corrida y callejera,” or Mexican diner and street food, in a colorful eatery that is designed to evoke images of a typical Mexican dive bar or butcher shop. The food is “truly Mexican, without any pretense,” according to owner Iris Avelar, and ranges from savory snacks like “ezquites” — cups of cooked corn kernels with Mexican mayo, cheese and lime — to entrees like “pollo encacahuatado” — chicken with mole peanut sauce and broccoli, carrots and potatoes — or the exotic “nopal asado con queso” — grilled cactus with melted cheese. The menu will change regularly, but you can count on staples like beans, tacos and quesadillas. La Superior hasn’t gotten its liquor license yet, but they do have a juice bar, serving fresh drinks like “liquado de mamey” — a sweet melon smoothie — and Mexican “limonada,” which Avelar assured GO Brooklyn is “a really amazing lemonade like you’ve never had in your life.” For those Williamsburg bar-hoppers in search of something fast and fried, the restaurant is open till 1 am on weekdays and 2 am on weekends, and will also serve brunch on the weekends.
