Huarache Verde: Cilantro Huarache with Cochinita Pibil, Fresh Pineapple and Pickled Onion – $7.50

The pork is tender and juicy, paired nicely with the black beans, pineapple, and pickled onion. Nothing special, but a solid dish.

Carne Asada: Seared Beef Tenderloin, Grilled Queso Fresco, Refried Beans Scallion and Ranchera Salsa – $9.50

Festival dishes should be interesting and unique, but this is just carne asada over a grilled, cold slab of cheese. The beef is fine, tender, and juicy, with a charred exterior, but this isn’t interesting enough to be worth this price.

Taco de Chocolate: Chocolate Candy Shell filled with Mexican Chocolate Mousse with a touch of Chile topped with Seasonal Fruit – $6.50

This was sadly forgettable. The generic chocolate cream was covered with a fine chocolate shell. It tasted like something out of a box in your grocer’s freezer. And for the price, you’re probably better off shopping for it there.

Mexican Craft Beer: Tulum Artisanal Lager (4.0% ABV) crafted with Citrus notes and made with Mexican Caribbean Seawater – $10.00

Tulum Artisanal Lager (4.0% ABV) crafted with Citrus notes and made with Mexican Caribbean Seawater – $10.00

The only good reason to wait in line here. A light lager with a distinct saltiness from the seawater and a light hint of citrus throughout. A rare beer worth ordering if you want to try it.

*NEW* The Lily: Casa Dragones Blanco Tequila ($70/bottle), Violet Essence Infusion, Rose Petal Liqueur, Cranberry and Lime Juice – $16.00

The Lily: Casa Dragones Blanco Tequila ($70/bottle), Violet Essence Infusion, Rose Petal Liqueur, Cranberry and Lime Juice – $16.00

This was way too syrupy and sweet, totally unenjoyable. It burns on the way down, which is unwarranted, given the unpleasant taste. The usual premixed junk from this pavilion.

*NEW* Smoky Rosemary: Centinela Blanco Tequila ($43/bottle), Rosemary-infused Ojo de Tigre Mezcal ($32/bottle), Ginger Cordial, Lime Juice and Rosemary Aroma – $15.00

This comes out smoking, but it lasts about 15 seconds, thanks to the hole in the lid. Again, this is premixed, and it tastes like it. Way too thick and syrupy to be enjoyed. Hard pass.
