The patio is now open, and I recommend you sit out there. Market lights strewn all around, this casual spot is serving fresh Mexican cuisine with a modern twist. To start, we ordered the Braker’s Guac (made-to order guacamole served with freshly cooked tortilla chips with Salsa Fresca). This is the perfect starter, and the best part is, they refill your chips. The guac is rustically chopped up, fresh and flavorful. The salsa is really nice too, and the chips have a great crisp crunch.
To drink, I went with The Passion of Spice (El Buho Mezcal, fresh passion fruit puree, habanero infused tequila, house made sour and pineapple juice served on the rocks). This drink was pretty incredible. You’re hit with the heat from the habanero, and then get a little bit of the smokiness from the Mezcal, but then, to refresh and cool off the drink, is the sweetness from the pineapple. Really, really good.
For my entree, I ordered The Spicy Catch Salad (Blackened Cod over mixed greens with julienned veggies, ripe tomato, pineapple jicama salsa and pomegranate-chipotle vinaigrette). I really loved this salad. The ingredients were abundant, yet light, allowing you to eat healthy without leaving hungry. The fish was light, flaky, and full of flavor with a really nice spice. The dressing was really delicious too, adding some sweetness to the fresh dish.
