In this week’s Feast!, I wrote about Momocho. Please ignore the lame headline. I was struggling that day and very tired. Anyway, Momocho, in my opinion, is the best Mexican in the city – and definitely my favorite for guacamole. If you have yet to try, it’s definitely worth your time and should be on your must-dine list. Try and go while the weather is still nice and you can take advantage of the cute and secluded patio (if not, the inside is equally as fun).
Speaking of Mexican food, my friend recently tried Zocalo and wasn’t impressed. I have’t been there, and honestly wasn’t planning to ever give it a try. But, if it’s on your list, here is her review:
YUCK! The first thing I ordered was a pomegranate margarita. That was good. The atmosphere was really cool, but it was super loud. We ordered the queso fundido as an appetizer – one of my favorite things since I’m a cheese-aholic. I love the queso when it’s super gooey and you have to cut it with a knife. This cheese was like soup and had absolutely zero flavor. The first thing we did was add salt and pepper. There was barely any sausage and no jalapenos (like the menu said would be on top). The chips were good. They make them fresh on site. The salsa came in a tiny dish and was really spicy, but had a lot of chipotle in it and I’m just not a fan of smoky anything. So I ordered the fish special because, a) it was grouper and b) it was to come with grilled peppers, onions, olives and capers. Well the vegetables were just this side of raw, there was about one sliced black olive and NO capers! Capers are one of my favorite things. Plus, I’m looking at the plate and there is a green spice sprinkled over everything. One taste and it’s oregano! Am I new or do you think that is totally weird for Mexican? The fish had no taste except that damn oregano so I didn’t eat it. I had a huge side of rice because I told them no beans and I swear it was Zataran’s. So, maybe a nice place for margaritas, but not for food. And I never have something that I actually don’t eat, so for me it was a big deal.
