Milagro Grill already has a enough 5-star reviews to back the establishment as a must-eat-location in Phoenix, and I can only back up the masses.
We sat on the patio in the early afternoon before the dinner rush, and it was total perfection. The patio has hi-test, outdoor furniture yet completely made for comfort. Moreover, the mesh patio awning and half-dozen misters keep the entire area breezy and cool.
We started with chips and dip. Although not an out-the-ordinary starter, the guacamole was fantastic. I also loved the extra-chunky texture.
Our party ordered the Filadelfia Torta, the Mac & Cheese 'Chile Verde', and a side of Frijoles Rancheros.
First off let me say my torta came with a side of fries. These fries were nothing special -- not even hand cut -- and the least favorite item of my meal.
However, my torta was utterly spectacular. Who can go wrong with skirt steak, Serrano chile, shallots, French fries, tomato, and manchego cheese between a torta bun? Be forewarned though -- it's spicy!
The mac & cheese I was concerned would be overpriced for the amount that arrived. But fear not, it's flavor is totally worth $12 for mac & cheese -- a blend of braised pork, tomatillo, poblano chili, Anaheim chile, toasted tortilla crumbs, Oaxaca & Menonita cheeses over fusilli pasta.
Even with to-go boxes in hand, I had to test the frijoles. And no, these are not just everyday frijoles, but a combination of canary beans, chorizo (makes everything better), tomatillo and quest fresco. Again, delicious.
Although pricy compared to regular ol' Mexican food, the atmosphere and fusion food are totally worth a trip.
