We invite our locals to try the top 5 most popular Mexican dishes ordered at Orale. Our Mexican dishes are full of vibrant culinary flavors, enriched history, and the best part of any menu! Orale brings the classics with a unique twist, right to the table, without having to cross the border. These authentic favorites have been a major draw for North Jersey folk to snack on, alongside our salty rimmed margaritas. However, the truth is, the attraction to Orale goes beyond the tequila guzzling and standard Taco Tuesday crowd.
Add these to the must-order list, and taste-test your way through the assorted bursts of spices, seasonings, sauces and more. All of our cheesy, delightfully drizzled upon, perfectly cooked meats, and specialty crafted plates, have been designed to tell a story in every bite. Our Mexican dishes are not just a meal, we create an experience worth being sought after in the tri-state area.
Authentic Mexican Dishes with a Twist
Our Enchiladas add spice to your life. When you have fresh recipes with the right mosaic of zesty flavors, there is no need to overkill with too many unnecessary garnishes. Every bite will speak for itself with our shredded chicken filling, rolled into our pressed corn tortillas and covered in our savory, yet creamy tomatillo sauce and Chihuahua & Oaxaca Cheese.
WOOD GRILLED CARNE ASADA
We know what you are thinking… On its most basic level, carne asada is a marinated and grilled piece of beef. However, our twist is anything but basic! While a steak itself may seem simple, it requires an absolute masterful technique to accomplish. Sliced effortlessly thin, we executed our wood grilled steak, with a Black Habanero Garlic Aioli and served with our delicious Hand-cut Pork Fat Garlic Truffle Fries. Is your mouth watering yet? You get to choose your own cut. Indulge in either a beautiful skirt or the hungry man’s Ribeye, but both choices will leave your belly completely satisfied.
FACT: You’ll feel the sadness as you approach your last bite knowing it’s almost over. It’s OK, there’s always dessert!
TRUFFLE RIBEYE BURRITO
The secret to a burrito is the architecture, and most people do not know how to construct the monument properly. Achieving all the stuffed ingredients and topped flavors in every single bite is what separates the men from the little boys, the professionals from the amateurs. And at Orale, we do it right! Right on the money. A seared Black Angus Ribeye, OMK Spice, Charred Habanero Guacamole, Caramelized Onion, Blue Cheese Crema, Pickled Tomatillo Salsa, Arugula, Red Rice & Black Beans and smothered with Truffled Queso. I mean, can I get a HOLY Guacamole?
The literal meaning of carnitas, ‘little meats’ implies you may need more to feel satisfied. Not at Orale! This dish, originating in the state of Michoacán, and a staple of Mexican cuisine, is yet another example of how ‘less is more’ when it comes to food being prepared and cooked with the best. Braised Crisp Pork Belly, vigorously simmering until succulently tender, and marinated in roasted red onions, salsa verde & cilantro, Orale carnitas are a step above the rest. Formally the popularized King of the street meats, Carnitas have become a gourmet, upscale delicacy thanks to our modern take as the gateway to braised meats. Do not be intimidated by heaping portions meant for the carnivore buried inside you.
Let’s not forget the Borracho Taco. Despite tradition, it can be eaten any night of the week. When the craving for tacos hits, you cannot deny the urges. Crispy Beer Battered Fish topped with Pickled Jalapeño Cabbage Slaw, Chipotle Orange Sauce is the perfect alternative for those who prefer sea over land or if you just need a break from the heavier meats. The Borracho Taco is also the ultimate mix of savory and sweet, while providing a little spice and kick in each bite.
Tuesday does not exist. Only Taco Tuesday. Orale celebrates the narrative of a Taco Tuesday Special, which offers this item at 50% off (CASH ONLY).
