Pork Taco: Slow-braised Pork Taco served with Apple Relish, Goat Cheese and Chile de Árbol Sauce $6.25

We don’t feel there was enough pork to justify the price tag, but what pork we did get was juicy and tender. The sauce had just a little spice and all the accompaniments worked well together. Although a little difficult to share, it’s a solid dish.

Chilaquiles: Chilaquiles served with Chorizo, Mexican Cream and Cotija Cheese – $5.95

While not photogenic, this item was a crowd favorite. It’s cheesy, there’s a good portion of meat, and everything included works together in perfect harmony. It’s a solid dish and a large portion for the price. Absolutely don’t miss this!

Capirotada: Bread Pudding served with Rompope – $4.25

Once you dig past the layer of cinnamon on top you’ll be greeted with warm and gooey bread pudding. A few in our group don’t generally enjoy bread pudding, but we agreed this was great. At a $4.25 price tag it’s worth checking out.

Tiger Lily Sangria – $10.25

A typical sangria mix, ultimately bland and very forgettable. We found ourselves going back to have a sip just to remember what it tastes like compared to the other drinks.

Rose Margarita – $11.50

Pretty rim, right? It’s actually a mix of salt and rose petals, hence the rose margarita. It’s a very floral cocktail that fits in well with the overall theme of the festival though it could be boozier.

Violet Cassis Punch – $12.25

The booziest of the bunch with a price tag to boot. We recommend this for not only the alcohol but also the flavor, it’s the best of the three options, although not ultimately as unique as a rose petal rim.

Daisy Spicy Beer – $6.75

Although advertised as being spicy, it’s really not. The beer itself has a chili taste to the tongue but that quickly goes away to a simple ale. Ultimately forgettable.
