Fiesta Nachos : corn tortilla chips with espazote black beans, melted cheese, sour cream, salsa Fresca, fresh guacamole

The nachos are a unique take on this dish is Vera well designed and served. It was very well presented rather then a pile of chips.

The tortilla is first topped with Beas then cheese and then the salsa Fresca and a dash of cohita

The chip is heavy and the flavors make it in every bite rather then some bits on each

To me the blended cheese is over whining and doesn’t really do much.

Could have more cojita instead to cut the black beans.

This dish is there surf and turf. A nice steak about 8oz along side U10-U12 shrimp.

The steaks is grilled to your liking (Medium Rare) and is on top of ? . It is very tender with no fat or gristle on it. It is seasoned very light with the adobo not really there in flavor.

The shrimp are all also all grilled and on top the fried Plantain rice. The shrimp are really bland except for the char of the grilling. The do need so type of sauce for them that would also pair with the steak.

The rice is good but has very little of the plantain.


The burrito is first of all large not in size but in amount of ingredeants inside.

This burrito is filled with at lest a whole care asada stake along with cabbage and tomato’s.

The meat is juicy and tender but does have dmome fat and gristle.

The cabbage is most of the filler. And does bring a added texture and freshness to this.

The tomato’s are in the middle and not much. A big disappointment.

I opted to add Ranchero sauce on top instead of keeping it dry.
