Inside you discover a small grocery with an consuming space of about 10 tables for dine-in service. It offers off the vibes of mama cooking within the kitchen at residence.
For our meals tonight we went with a chorizo torta ($7) and rooster tinga tostadas ($7.75).
The torta got here with floor chorizo, a beneficiant portion of avocado and your alternative of scorching peppers on a contemporary bun.
I went with jalapeno. However for those who really need the warmth; in addition they have chipotle and serrano (fireplace extinguisher not included).
This sandwich can get messy. Add a bit of additional mayo and additional warmth for those who order it.
What’s tinga? It’s a stew made up of tomatoes, onion, garlic, and smoky chipotle, with oregano, bay leaf and thyme. Blended with rooster on a taco shell with all of the fixings, this dish gives a good share of style and warmth.
The beneficiant portion will problem you however avoid wasting for a second meal the subsequent day.
