The chicken was well seasoned and seemed to be all dark meat. I am not a fan of all dark meat but I actually liked it. The rice was outstanding! The simplicity of just cilantro and lime made this so refreshing. I am a huge fan of black beans — when I saw that the refried beans on the old menu were exchanged for black beans I was so thankful! The beans were great paired with the rice. This whole dish was fantastic; It wasn’t heavy or greasy. The steak was great! It was little greasy when getting to the bottom of the dish but the steak was tender and seasoned well. It seemed a little heavy-handed with salt, but when you eat it with other items it works together to make an appetizing dish! Tyler had to try the Torta Ahogada Al Pastor because of the Guajillo Salsa. This massive sandwich is layered with tender Pineapple Achiote Marinated pork, Black Beans, Cabbage, Queso Fresco and topped with a spicy Quajillo Salsa and drizzle of crema. The torta is served with a side of Cilantro-Lime Rice. Tyler was really impressed by this dish and thought that the bread would get soggy, but the salsa was thick enough to where it didn’t seep into the bread. All the layered flavors worked harmoniously into one amazing torta.
To answer my question in the beginning — “was it for the better?” 100% YES! Tyler and I were so impressed with the menu change that we want to eat here again! I am really excited to try other meats and dishes on the menu. I guess I could have ordered tacos and asked for one of each meat but now I have a reason to go back and try more!
