While the Mexico Marketplace did offer a ribeye taco last year, this year’s edition offers a different recipe, which includes red onions, poblano peppers, and cotija cheese.

*NEW* Chilaquiles con Chorizo: Crispy Corn Tortillas tossed in Salsa Verde and Monterey Jack Cheese topped with Crema Mexicana, Queso Cotija, Pickled Onions, and Ground Chorizo – $7.00
This was just a pile of soggy tortillas covered in salsa verde. The flavoring was decent, but it was difficult to distinguish the flavors. It’s not bad, but it’s bland and boring. And for that, we can’t really recommend it.
*NEW* Taco de Ribeye: Shaved Ribeye, Red Onions, and Poblano Peppers on a Corn Tortilla with Ranchera Salsa, Cotija Cheese, and Chives – $7.00
Again, this was just okay. The beef was bland and chewy, and didn’t really have the level of flavor we expect from ribeye. The rest of the taco was just basic. There’s nothing remarkable about this one either.
Capirotada de Chocolate: Abuelita Chocolate Bread Pudding served with a Chocolate Crème Anglaise – $5.50
This is a bread pudding, so if you’re not someone who likes those, this isn’t going to be for you. It got very gelatinous very quickly, and the chocolate cream also hardened quickly, too. It’s a giant portion for what they charge. It should be more moist, though.
Mexican Craft Beer: Tulum Artisanal Lager crafted with Citrus notes and made with Mexican Caribbean Seawater (4.0% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 o.z., $9.50 for 12 o.z.
DJ Burns says on Untappd: “Refreshing lager, great flavor, easy drink. [A] craft beer for the heat!”
If there was a cheap ripoff of Sol, which is a cheap ripoff of Corona, then this beer would be it.
*NEW* El Tigre Margarita: Ojo de Tigre Mezcal ($31/bottle) with Pomegranate, Prickly Pear, Pineapple, and Ginger Juices served on the rocks with a Hibiscus Salt Rim – $11.50
We found this to be fruity and tasty. You definitely get a lot of pomegranate and pineapple. It was a little weak on the mezcal, but overall, this was a nice, refreshing drink.
This was a decent margarita. The variety of liquors add a nice complexity to a traditional margarita flavor, which we enjoyed. The spiciness was just the right amount, enough to accentuate the flavor of the drink without being overpowering. If you’re craving a margarita, this might just quench your thirst.
This was terrible. It had the faint taste of rotten fruit, which we wouldn’t want in anything, much less a sangria. Definitely do not get this. It makes every other beverage at this Marketplace better by comparison.
