What I Ate: Charc Week at The Fruteria & The Monty

Posted By on Mon, Jul 28, 2014 at 11:57 AM

Charc Week is a bit of a blur. I think we'll definitely need two weeks if I'm to have more than two boards throughout the week...or maybe I'm a bit of a slacker.

Even so, I tasted The Fruteria's offering with a tequila-cured salmon and carne seca by chef Zach Garza, and Luis Segovia's take at The Monterey with a a helping of savory chorizo pork belly.

Getting an early start to #charcweek at @thefruteria. Tequila-cured salmon, carne seca, prensado chicharrón and head cheese with pickled apricots, radishes, cherries, and house escabeche. Delicious mouthful.

And then we were off to an old fave, where I ordered a Miss Darcy. Delicioso.
