Tasting Notes: Gringa Al Pastor
Prepare your taste buds for a flavor explosion with the Gringa Al Pastor, an unmissable gem on the menu.

Paired with your favorite libation, this culinary marvel is a true testament to the culinary prowess of Cholos.
Tasting Notes: Rib Eye Taco Set
Indulge in the remarkable Rib Eye Taco Set, a dish that promises an extraordinary symphony of flavors and textures. The centerpiece is the creamy rib eye, cooked in two distinctive ways: first grilled to perfection for a smoky char, and then seared in a seething hot cast iron skillet to create a tantalizing caramelized exterior. This artful combination is accompanied by caramelized onions, scallions, guacamole, and a hint of lime, resulting in an unforgettable taco experience. With every bite, the succulent meat, intermingled with the accompanying ingredients, imparts a delightful dance of flavors that will leave you craving for more.
Tasting Notes: Queso Fundido
For those seeking a comforting dish that oozes warmth and indulgence, look no further than the Queso Fundido.

Be sure to savor each bite and allow the flavors to envelop your palate, creating a moment of pure gustatory bliss.

It is an irresistible dessert that will have you relishing every spoonful, unable to resist its creamy allure.
