|Tepito (ignore the scaffolding...)|
First order of business: scope out the margarita options! Dining compadre decided on the Mexican Mojito (with muddled pineapple, tequila, mint, and fresh lime juice) and I couldn't resist the call of the Clasica Agave margarita (with tequila, fresh lime juice, and agave nectar). The drinks were nicely presented and actually pretty large in size! They tasted pretty good, but sadly were not very strong (was there any tequila??).

The Mahi Mahi tacos came with chipotle glazed bacon, shredded lettuce, pico de gallo and honey-habanero aioli. While I enjoyed the bacon and the honey habanero aioli, dining compadre thought these were a touch too salty.
The Carne Asada tacos came with caramelized onions, pickled cucumbers, queso fresco and roasted tomatillo salsa. This was a huge disappointment as the beef was tough and flavorless.
Both tacos came on homemade tortillas. While I appreciate the effort, these tortillas were way too thick and totally made the tacos unenjoyable (this coming from a girl who loves all carbs!).
