*NEW* Chicharron-crusted Fried Artichoke Dip with smoked pepper crema and Oaxaca cheese – $6.50

The delicately spiced red pepper crema is a real standout, though the fried artichoke dip is no slouch.

Traditional artichoke dip is mixed with beans to hold a shape that can be balled and rolled in chicharron.

The beans almost change the character of the artichoke dip to be closer to falafel or a black bean burger.

The star vegetable is noticeably absent in the flavor profile of these bites. However, the overall dish is fantastic despite the missing artichoke flavor.

The red pepper crema elevates this dish to the next level and makes it something special.

We loved the artichoke toast and would probably eat again! It’s one of the biggest portions for the price throughout the entire festival.

The toast was crisp and crunchy on the outside while still soft on the inside. The only complaint we have is that there was too much olive tapenade on top.

*NEW* Passion Fruit Rum Cocktail: White rum, Italian bitter apéritif, passion fruit, orange, guava, orgeat, and lime

This drink is heavy on the passion fruit flavor, which is exceptional, but the taste of the rum is nearly lost. It’s cool, sweet, refreshing, and straightforward.

The passion fruit overpowers the other flavors. It’s not an unpleasant drink, but it’s not what we were looking forward to when we read the menu description.
