This was really tasty. The ground chorizo has a nice spice to it.

The queso and pickled onion balance the flavors well with some creaminess from the cheese and a fresh crunch from the onion.

It’s hard to eat, for sure—it doesn’t cut well. The presentation doesn’t come out as attractive as they probably expected, either.

Overall, though, this is still a good dish, albeit slightly overpriced for what it is.

Tamal de Pollo: Braised Chipotle Chicken served in a Corn Masa with Yellow Mole and topped with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, Queso Cotija and Crema Mexicana – $6.75

*NEW* Tamal de Pollo: Braised Chipotle Chicken served in a Corn Masa with Yellow Mole and topped with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, Queso Cotija and Crema Mexicana – $6.75

This tamale is served out of the wrapper—you know, so no one accidentally ends up eating it. The chicken was hard when we got ours. We’re not sure if it’s because it’s cold outside or if that’s just how it’s served.

There are really good flavors in this, though. The chicken is mildly spicy and the sauce is creamy and rich, making this really delicious. The cojita cheese makes it worth it.

*NEW* Dulce de Leche Churros: Dulce de Leche filled Churros sprinkled with Cinnamon-Sugar – $5.50

This was an okay churro. The Dulce de Leche filling was hard to pin down a taste for. It was just creamy and sweet, almost apple tasting.

It was decent, but not any more exciting than a regular churro.

Tulum Mexican Craft Beer with a Blackcurrant and Ginger Liqueur Floater – $6.50

*NEW* Pumpkin Spice Margarita: Tomba Blanco Tequila, Ojo de Tigre Mezcal, Nixta Corn Liqueur, Pumpkin Spice Purée, and Lime-Agave Juice with Cinnamon-Sugar Rim – $12.50

This was okay, though we didn’t get much of a pumpkin flavor.

las-posadas-holiday-kitchen-2020-27

It was more just sweet with a caramel taste.

It was not bad, but not great. It definitely wasn’t worth the price.

Horchata Margarita: Tequila, Horchata Rum, Cinnamon Whisky and Agua de Horchata, served on the rocks – $11.50

This is like horchata flavored coconut water, and it even says in the description “Agua de Horchata” so we should have known then. It’s a very thin consistency and it’s sippable, but not entirely drinkable. The cinnamon is hard to find in here and no flavors really stand out either.
