That guacamole con chisme with cotijo cheese had genuine spunk the second time around. The straight-on queso that comes free with happy hour chips and salsa is just right. Note that the normal 4-6 p.m. happy hour is all day on Tuesday and take advantage.
That cochinita fared better on time two as well. Where before the slab of grilled pork had clearly met the sauce for the first time on the plate, this time the meeting may have been Tinder-quick but there was at least a degree of compatibility; the orange sauce didnt have the metallic tang of serious achiote, but it was reasonably convincing, and marinated onions added the necessary, vinegary accent.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the beef cheek barbacoa. The cachetes make for much less greasy barbacoa than is often the case.
Dont skip dessert: Im talking about the passion fruit and coconut tres leches. The flavors mesh beautifully nutty and creamy against tart and fruity, the cakes texture is almost custardy, and the plate is muy guapo to boot.
