|Love fresh veggies with guac!|
|The empanada is a customer favorite.|
|Fresh vegetables are important components to each dish including the flautas!|
|Gorgeous presentation and delicious!|
For my dinner, I savored the Callos de Hacha--pan seared scallops with acorn squash, green beans and baby spinach in guajillo butter. Of course, anything with scallops pretty much has my name written on it. But, hesitation set in when I saw acorn squash incorporated into the dish. I am happy to say this dish was pure heaven. Loved it and look forward to having it again! The sweetness of the acorn squash melded well with the pan seared scallop and pan sauce. Local Chef Eusevio Garcia has really created some magic here!
|Mussels with a spicy kick|
At the owner Moe's request, I also tried the mussels. My father loved mussels, so seeing the dish on the menu reminded me of him. So, it didn't take much convincing in reality. The mussels feature leeks, garlic and a chipotle cream sauce. The spicy kick is intriguing--truly enjoyable!
|Almost too pretty to eat!|
|Simple yet delicious cauliflower side!|
|Lovely, warm dessert.|
|Handcrafted margarita from fresh juice!|
|Very addictive blackberry pomegranate mojito!|
