Here’s just a taste of what the menu has to offer:

  • Sopa de Tortilla
  • Pulpo en Mole Blanco (corn-crusted octopus with chorizo and white mole)

  • Costilla de Cerdo (roasted pork chop with chicharron cheddar mashed potatoes and pipian verde sauce)

The cocina will also host Happy Hour Tuesdays to Saturdays from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. During this time guests will be able to enjoy a selection of sips and snacks (including Prawn Ceviche Tostadas and Queso con Chorizo).

The drinks will definitely not disappoint either. Get mezcal and tequila tasting flights, margaritas, craft beer or wine.
