The eatery offers typical Mexican food from the Yucatan peninsula. I got a couple of different tacos, a tamal and a dessert. I tried that fish tacos, and ay Chihuahua were they delicious. The fish was fried, crisp and so fresh. The tartar sauce, cabbage and pico de gallo was all refreshing and delicious. Best fish taco I've ever had. The simplicity and the freshness of the ingredients just blew my mind.
I also got a Vaporcito, a thin tamal filled with seasoned chicken that has been steamed in a traditional banana leaf. This was a bit disappointing, the masa was dry, under-seasoned and slightly gritty.
My friend for tacos the Poc Chuc which are tacos filled with marinated pork loin , black bean puree, lettuce, charred red onions, and chunky fire roasted tomato sauce served on steamy tortillas. The pork was so juicy, we were convinced it was actually steak, until I asked the cashier for some clarification.
I had to try a dessert, I mean, I HAD TO. Once I did though, I kind of wish I didn't. I got their Caballeros Pobres, which is basically a take on bread pudding. It's thick slices of toasted bread cooked, then completely drowned in an overpowering cinnamon-raisin syrup and topped with slivered almonds. Two of my friends who had come along for the ride and didn't eat mentioned that the raisins looked like rabbit poop, they were kind of right. The dessert wasn't bad, but by no means great. Way too many raisins for my personal liking and the syrup was ridiculously too overpowering.
In conclusion, come here for the tacos! I would definitely comeback here for tacos in a heartbeat and I wouldn't necessarily rule out the rest of the menu either. I'm still thinking about my fish taco and my chicharron tacos... ymmm ::Homer Simpson drool::
