Got to hang out with my buddy B and his girlie friends…. K and A, the other day.. W and I headed over to Oyamel after I was done with work and they were already finishing up a pitcher of margaritas – I gladly joined in and quickly catched up.
SOOO much tequila <3
We decided to order one of everything off of the 4$ each bar menu. YUM. PS their chips were SOO much better than the flimsy ones from Los Cuates
Ceviche verde “El Bajio”
Wild Pacific ono with a creamy avocado, tomatillo, green olives, and jalapeno chiles sauce
W loved it, I thought it needed a bit more crunch or spice to it. Avocados made me happy though. Eating it with chips helped. <3
Taco de barbacoa de res
Beef stewed in a Oaxacan-style guajillo chile sauce with pickled catcus paddle
Beefy, a bit dry but tasty.
Albondigas enchipotladas con queso doble creama
Meatballs in chipotle sauce with crumbled ‘double cream’ cheese and cilantro
Soft small balls of meatballs. I’m a meatball snob but these were good.
Shredded Pork Tacos
Pulled Pork and cabbage. My favorite ones of the night. DELISH!
Taco de cochinita pibil con cebolla en escabeche
Yucatan-style pit-barbecued pork with pickled red onion and Mexican sour orange in a house-made corn tortilla
I thought these were a bit dry too :T Meh.
And then we headed to Jaleo for some tapas and the… DESSERT!!!
I remember ordering a regular bubbly but ended up getting served a rose sparkling wine that cost 4$ more but it WAS tasty. Our waiter was kinda pushy with what we wanted to order. Awkward… but B’s rice pudding was FAB!
My flan <3
But no toilet paper so I left them this HAHA
