Sopes de Barbacoa: Braised Barbacoa Beef served on Fried Guajillo Corn Shell with Black Beans, Cotija Cheese, Mexican Cream and Chives – $7.25

This dish was quite tasty, but we have to say it’s quite overpriced for what you get. The beef is well-cooked and the shell is soft with a lot of flavors. It really is quite a tasty dish if you can stomach the $7.25 that you have to pay for a single sope.

*NEW* Agave Pork Belly: Pork Belly caramelized with Agave atop Pumpkin Seed Pesto Lentil Salad – $7.50

Agave Pork Belly: Pork Belly caramelized with Agave atop Pumpkin Seed Pesto Lentil Salad – $7.50

The pork belly was sadly very fatty and did not have a lot of flavors that contributed to the overall dish. However, the lentil salad was very good and wasn’t dry, which was nice to see. It was definitely the best part of the dish.

*NEW* Frida Banana Daiquiri: Mexican Handcrafted Rum, Banana Purée and Applejack – $14.25

Frida Banana Daiquiri: Mexican Handcrafted Rum, Banana Purée and Applejack – $14.25

This was a disgusting drink. It reminded us of children’s medicine, like banana Robitussin, and the banana purée gave it a very strange consistency. The rum and Applejack couldn’t even save it. This was a big thumbs down for us.

*NEW* Diego Blackberry Margarita: 100% Agave Tequila, Blackberry Purée, Fresh Jalapeño-Lime Juice served with Black Ant Salt Rim – $14.50

Diego Blackberry Margarita: 100% Agave Tequila, Blackberry Purée, Fresh Jalapeño-Lime Juice served with Black Ant Salt Rim – $14.50

This drink has a very nice blackberry flavor that isn’t too sweet. The 100% agave tequila was good, but not overpowering, which complimented the blackberry flavor. The salted rim wasn’t excessively salty and added an additional layer of flavor to the drink.

*NEW* Mexican White Sangria: White Wine, Fruit Juices and Sweet Cinnamon-infused Tequila – $9.50

Mexican White Sangria: White Wine, Fruit Juices and Sweet Cinnamon-infused Tequila – $9.50

This drink is very sweet and has an overpowering cinnamon flavor. It tasted almost like mulled wine, so much so that we thought it would have tasted better warm. Unless you like really sweet wine with a heavy cinnamon flavor, this is for sure a pass.
