Tlacoyo: Blue Corn Masa topped with Black Bean Spread, Ground Chorizo, Queso Fresco and Mexican Cream – $6.50

The meat in this dish was well spiced, had good flavor, and was well cooked… but for the price, it’s just not worth it. You could probably do better by opting for Mexico counter service from La Cantina de San Angel. However, the meat in this dish was more flavorful than the one included in the torta below.

*NEW* Beef Torta: Braised Beef served on a Crispy Sourdough Roll with Queso Oaxaca, Avocado, Pickled Onions and Jalapeños in a Spicy Habanero Sauce – $6.50

The habanero sauce is only good thing about this sandwich. It’s otherwise very bland, and bread isn’t particularly good. It’s actually on the dry side, and kind of hard. Also, we didn’t get that this torta came… in a bowl? It made eating it far more difficult than it had to be.

*NEW* Tres Leches: Milk-soaked Sponge Cake topped with Cajeta Whipped Cream and Almond Powder – $4.50

Tres Leches: Milk-soaked Sponge Cake topped with Cajeta Whipped Cream and Almond Powder – $4.50

This is your good, yet fairly standard Disney Parks tres leches. It’s a nice size, and good to share. If you like tres leches, you’ll be happy with this. It’s a pretty safe bet for dessert and will hit the spot if you’re looking for something sweet here.

*NEW* Cerveza: Allende Golden Ale Craft Beer served with a Liqueur Floater (5.0% ABV, pre liqueur) – $6.75

According to Cervecería Allende, their Golden Ale has an aroma of “complex malt feast, led by light and dark caramel and roasted nuts with a hint of black bread and a fine note of floral and earthy hops,” and a taste of “caramel melts with notes of hops to a short, smooth finish led by the roasted malt.”

*NEW* Damiana Flower Margarita: Damiana Flower Liqueur, Blanco Tequila, Agave Nectar and Citrus Juices served on the rocks with a Black Ant Salt Rim – $10.50

Damiana Flower Margarita: Damiana Flower Liqueur, Blanco Tequila, Agave Nectar and Citrus Juices served on the rocks with a Black Ant Salt Rim – $10.50

They completely forgot the salt rim on this beverage, but that’s the least of our problems with this beverage. This is your typical, sickly-sweet, premixed margarita, poured out of a jug. You could do better for $10.50… just saying.

*NEW* Oaxacan Gin & Tonic: Smokey Gin, Black Currant Liqueur, Vermouth, Lime Juice and Tonic Water – $12.50

Oaxacan Gin & Tonic: Smokey Gin, Black Currant Liqueur, Vermouth, Lime Juice and Tonic Water – $12.50

That being said, for $12.50, you can get this fantastic Oaxacan gin and tonic. It’s really good! This is a nice deviation from bad, overpriced margaritas (while still being slightly overpriced.) It’s hard to mess up a gin drink, but this is definitely good.

*NEW* Rosé Sangria: Withers Rosé Wine, Tequila Blanco, Elderflower and Ginger Liqueur, Pineapple, Cactus Pear and Ginger Juices – $11.75
