'My wife and stopped over for restaurant weeks to try Hugo's as we heard good things about the restaurant. We were brought to our table immediately upon check in. We asked for a different table and we were accommodated. Upon review of the menus my wife noticed the publicized vegetarian menu was different that she was given. My menu however noted the correct menu. When the waiter arrived my wife explicitly told the waited she wanted the menu that I had in my version. When the muse arrived, it was not what we requested and I had to call over the waiter. He went and had the manager come speak with us and explained that Hugo's had received a number of complaints about the menu b/c people did not like the taste due to the flavors and peppers used. He did however offer to provide the requested menu and accommodate her. I tried the red wine menu selection, however, opted not to take the pairings. I did try the recommended French wine that was paired with the main course. My wife being Mexican and I having traveled throughout Mexico are very familiar with the tastes and seasonings of Mexico. Food highlights: Ancho Relleno - excellent flavor but I would have liked a little heat (spice) added to it. The tortita de lentejas - good flavor, good texture. However, my wife found a large pieces of wax paper under one of the tortitas! Enchiladas placeras - whomever was complaining about the taste of these has no concept of sabor de Mexico!!!! I tried a few bites of my wife's dish and the flavor immediately reminds you of Mexico! The churros con pina - very good! Again, tastes like a churro from the streets of Mexico City! My crepes were decadent. The ice cream helped take some of hit off of the bittersweet chocolate. The wine - fantastic choice with with lamb. The low side: My wife's salad was a but too plain, maybe a little more olive oil and lime. The lamb was ok. It was a little overcooked on one side for my taste. The tamal with the lamb tasted good but having to unwrap a large banana leaf at the table was a bit disturbing and I ended up getting sauce all over my hands and it covered my plate and sauce. Honestly trying to deal with it was a bit off putting of the experience. I will say, we almost to ask someone to roll us out of the restaurant because we were so full! Overall experience was good. We look forward to trying some other dishes at Hugo's.
