Giant Tostada de Chorizo: Chorizo served on a giant tostada with chipotle black bean purée, salsa verde, queso cotija, crema mexicana, and pickled onion – $9.75

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.

*NEW* Tamal de Barbacoa: Shredded barbacoa beef in a corn masa topped with ranchera salsa, queso cotija, and crema Mexicana – $7.50

This was bland. It was dry with just a hint of spice.

There’s very little beef inside.

It’s a hard pass on this from us.

Dulce de Leche Churros sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar – $5.95

las-posadas-holiday-kitchen-2020-29

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.

las-posadas-holiday-kitchen-2020-31

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

*NEW* Cranberry-Cinnamon Margarita: Apple-cinnamon infused mezcal, cranberry juice, orange liqueur, and lime juice with a cinnamon-sugar rim – $13.50

This margarita was very syrupy and super sweet. It was watered down and light on the alcohol.

los-posadas-holiday-kitchen-items-1-9772454

We don’t get much cranberry flavor and only a hint of cinnamon. We definitely don’t recommend this.

Horchata Margarita: Tequila blanco, corn whiskey, horchata, and cinnamon horchata rum – $13.00

*NEW* 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 stand out either.

*NEW* Mistletoe Cerveza: Tulum Artisanal Lager with Blackcurrant Liqueur – $7.00/$13.00 (6oz/12oz)

The liquor separates from the beer, which tastes like a Corona or Dos Equis.

It’s odd, the liquor doesn’t enhance the beer at all.
