Zocalo Cucina has the best guacamole made table side and refreshing sangria. The former Stix restaurant has the same decor, but better music and great food. Friends had chili rellenos, soft tacos, tortilla soup and were equally impressed. The friendly server made the guacamole with two avocados, a teaspoon of salt, lime juice, onions, cilantro and tomatoes.
Fresh, table side guacamole
Only at Zocalo is the Mexican corn served on skewers which is a start to a clean way to eat corn, however two skewers on both sides would make corn easier (that’s how I would serve the corn anyways.) The corn itself was fresh, served with the right amount of chili powder, however there was not enough mayonnaise or cotija cheese.
Elote, Mexican corn
Chicken enchiladas with plantains
Cochinita Pibil, plantains with crema and whipped mashed potatoes
The plantains with crema were sweet and creamy mashed potatoes were satisfying. The cochinita pibl was a bit salty, but braised in a chipotle sauce.
