Mercadito

My boyfriend and I are having dinner at Mercadito tomorrow night. I'm from Texas and a die hard hard for gourmet Mexican. I've heard amazing things about their fish tacos and margaritas. Please any other suggestions/thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    people seem to love their ceviches but I've always found them to be served way too icy cold
    the mango guacamole is, IMHO, not to be missed. just the right amount of chipotle smokiness. the al pastor tacos and the mole poblano tacos are tasty. I like the pepino margarita. Also, the bloody marias at brunch are awesome! (I believe they use tequila instead of vodka and create a chile-infused bloody mary spinoff).
    enjoy

      The shrimp tacos are amazing, as is the cucumber margarita.
