|The Daring Duo: Hornitos Skinny Rita|
and Cabo Flip
Sipping away we scanned the menu. The first thing I noticed was that it offered quite a bit of dishes, which based on my trips to Mexico, sounded very authentic. There was everything from enchiladas, carnitas, tacos and an appetizing choice of fish. Then I saw IT and I knew I had to have IT: Top Shelf Guacamole, made tableside. Look, I don't know what it is between me and avocados and I actually started eating them as an adult but the green little suckers are my apple a day. We also tasted a new appetizer on the menu, Botanas Trio, which consisted of two ahi tuna tacos, crab cakes and Poblano Chicken Empanadas. Let's go back to my vice. The guacamole was spot on! It had a creamy texture and just the right amount of jalapeno kick. I will confess I was rather unladylike as I dipped my chips in a hurry to ensure most of it was mine. The Botanas Trio had a nice sampling of snacks. The crabcakes were tender and made with micro cilantro to heighten the taste and the empanadas had a generous filling of chicken and roasted poblano peppers. The star of the trio for me were the ahi tuna tacos. The fresh chunks of tuna were blissfully combined with chipotle aioli and jicama slaw, ending in a crispy bite.
