La Esquina Recs

I'm having dinner at La Esquina (downstairs) next week and am interested in some recommendations on what to order. Particularly, I was wondering if anyone had a take on their tostadas de tinga. Excellent tinga is one of my absolute favorite Mexican foods, right up their with al pastor straight with a bit of char straight from the spit.

  1. I haven't tried the tinga, but the steak tacos and grilled shrimp were both terrific. Grilled green beans were also a terrific side. The main drawback, I'd say, are the drinks, which are pretty weak.
