Atmospheric Eastside eatery blends coastal and Interior Mexican with Tex-Mex.
The "cathedral of seafood" is a jaw-dropper. The menu is half seafood and half grilled, meat-centric Norteño. Try the tostada de pulpo, a pile of tender, griddled octopus with scallions and pepper.
Look for a dozen egg dishes for early risers, as well as machacado and nopales, enchiladas potosinas, and plenty of Mexican standards.
The small menu is packed with inventive cuisine, a combination of street-food staples and popular cantina dishes, with a quality that shows from the first bite of chips and salsa.
This expert purveyor of real Norteño-style grilled meats and side dishes offers reliable Interior dishes such as puerco en chile colorado and pollo en mole poblano to round out the menu.
