    The table side guacamole with truffles is awesome. They have a really, REALLY good drink made with tequila and blood orange juice. The best part is, this drink is rimmed with a salt, sugar, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. It is so good.

        Ever since they opened, they've had a dish called Chiles en Nogada. As described on their site:
        "Poblano pepper stuffed with ground beef, dried fruit and nuts, with a creamy walnut sauce and pomegranate"
        It's served at room temperature.

        This doesn't sound like something I'd like at all--I'm not into sweet dishes, creamy sauces, or ground beef--but this dish is outstanding albeit rich. Someone in your party should order it and you should try it.

        The sopes are great, too. They also have a cocktail I love call Senior Borega. It's tequila, lime juice, sugar, jalepeno and fresh thyme. I never order cocktails but I can't get enough of these, even at $10 a pop.

          Thanks for the information. I think this is going to be a great night out. My only concern is that I hate cilantro and I am afraid it is going to be in many of the dishes.
