*NEW* Glazed BBQ Pork Belly with Furikake-Togarashi Mac Salad – $8.50

This is a delicious glazed pork belly. It’s not too heavy on the sauce, and the flavor is excellent if a little salty.

However, the dish has a soggy, goopy texture from the fat. With pork belly, it’s usually served crispy to keep the fat from running all over, but when done in this way, we find ourselves digging through the fat to get at the delicious meat. It’s more like an extra fatty pot roast than a traditional pork belly slice.

The macaroni salad is spectacular. The furikake-togarashi seasoning provides a surprising and very welcome pop of flavor to the cool and creamy Mac salad. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed this dish and would definitely get it again.

*NEW* Gyro-inspired Flatbread featuring Impossible Ground Beef with Chipotle Hummus, Tzatziki and Spiced Crispy Chickpeas – $6.75

The gyro is a decent vegetarian option, but it’s spicier than it needs to be.

The pita underneath was dry and tasteless, really it was just a vessel for the toppings.

The “meat” mixture tastes like goo, but the cucumber tzatziki topping is cooling and super fresh. We enjoyed the dried chickpeas, but those were spicier than needed.

*NEW* Mezcaleros Ancho Sandia Margarita – $14

This margarita was terrific! The mezcal is subtle and adds a very light smoky note. It has a chili flavor without any of the spice.

We can’t really pick out any distinct fruit flavor because it mixes so well. We highly recommend it for a complex drink that isn’t super sweet.

*NEW* Sake-Melon ’75 – $14

The melon sake drink was delicious and refreshing. We would get this one again. We can’t taste the sake at all.

It tasted like a sweet ginger beer with really light carbonation from the Prosecco. Overall very good; just make sure to mix it well, so you don’t end up with all the syrup on the bottom.
